Winter Park’s newest gyro spot, Opa! Charlie’s Gyros, is just the atmosphere and taste to leave any party satisfied. With ample indoor seating and an outdoor patio, this space can seat large groups and is family-friendly.
The new restaurant, owned by Charlie Alley and Fernan DeLeon (of Winter Park Sushi Bar and Pepe Osaka fame), has an airy and open feel and features a menu with Greek
and Mediterranean fusion. Opa! Charlie’s Gyros is open from 11AM-3PM for lunch,
with dinner hours starting tonight!
Guests can seat themselves and enjoy the abstract art and blue-and-white details
reminiscent of Greece itself. Large windows and a friendly staff make the restaurant a
bright and comfortable hangout, whether you’d like to sit at one of the three bars or
grab a table, all of which feature fresh flowers. The delicious food speaks for itself
(we tried the traditional gyro with sweet potato fries, SO good!).
We asked owner Charlie Alley for a recipe from their menu, and he was generous enough to share with us their signature watermelon salad, a perfect summer treat for
you to recreate when you’ve returned home from your vacation.
Opa! Charlie’s Watermelon Salad:
- Cubed Watermelon
- Feta Crumbles
- Sliced Fresh Mint Leaves
- Fresh Squeezed Lemon Spritz
Simply combine the ingredients to taste, garnish with fresh
mint leaves and enjoy!
