Mediterranean Restaurant, Daphne’s, Now Under New Management with New Menu, New Look and Retail Line

September 14, 2018 // // Los Angeles, California - With an inspired new menu featuring a blend of California and Greek flavors, Daphne’s is now under new management. Los Angeles-based Elite Restaurant Group has taken over operations of all 23 Daphne’s locations - all in California. The group, headed by Michael Nakhleh, has reworked the Mediterranean concept for new growth.

“Daphne’s will always keep its emphasis on Mediterranean, - but now everything is made from scratch in house, all fresh, with a lot of organic items,” says Nakhleh.

All 23 Daphne’s restaurants have been remodeled with a new, more contemporary design that make them more current.

Daphne’s has opened four new locations in: Oceanside, Mission Valley, Escondido, Conoga Park. The company has plans to franchise the fast-casual Daphne’s, as well as add roughly 10 new corporate locations annually.

Daphne’s locations have launched a new menu, created with the help of menu consultants Think Culinary, including: whole slow-roasted chicken, marinated with lemon zest, rosemary and garlic, along with roasted vegetables, garlic-herbed red potatoes, tzatziki, pita and Greek salad, which can serve four to six. Also, an organic spring mix salad with grilled chicken, strawberries, walnuts, feta and honey vinaigrette with pita.

The average check will be about $14 per person.

The company has also launched Daphne’s-branded retail line in Costco stores, including a gyro kit and two salad kits.

The name has been simplified to just Daphne’s, dropping the “California Greek.”
