Greasy Spoon New Acropolis Restaurant For Sale Across From Johnny Brendas


The corner Greek New Acropolis Restaurant in Fishtown is for sale (and the three apartments above it), and while the greasy spoon is nothing to write home about, we think the spot would be perfect for a well-conceived retro diner, something that would have the cache to take advantage of the area’s low prices and proximity to hot spot Johnny Brendas. The 40-year old restaurant and three apartments (total 3,324 square feet) is a turn-key operation (and still currently operating) that the owners would like to see turned into “an upscale bi-level bar/bistro with outside seating.” Given this key corner spot is on the same block as Stephen Starr’s new beer garden at 1201 Frankford Avenue and four blocks from new Sugar House Casino, we have full confidence this opportunity won’t be missed by those with an eye for prime real estate.
