— After more than seven years in business, Kipos Greek restaurant in Chapel Hill is relocating, representatives said Monday.

The restaurant, which opened in 2013 at 431 W Franklin St., hasn't announced where it will be moving to yet. That information is expected to be released in the coming weeks.

Kipos' dining room has been closed since March due to state regulations amid the coronavirus. It has not been offering take-out.

“Kipos is a very special restaurant for Giorgios Group. It’s a celebration of our Greek heritage and the healthy and delicious food ways that we learned from our mother, grandmother and ancestors. My dear sister Olga is one of the most passionate chefs I know, and goes to great lengths to recreate the Greek food and dining experience of our childhood here in North Carolina," Bakatsias said via a press release. "Kipos – which means garden – will be more relevant than ever before in this new location."

Giorgios Hospitality operates also operates Bin54, City Kitchen and Village Burgers in Chapel Hill, Parizade, Vin Rouge, Local 22 and Nasher Museum Cafe in Durham, Rosewater in Raleigh, Farm Table and Gatehouse Tavern in Wake Forest and Golden Fleece Slow Earth Kitchen in Asheville.

Vin Rouge, which has been completely closed amid the coronavirus pandemic, plans to open for take-out this week.
