 Aplos CEO Alex Eaton issued the following statement. 

Jackson, Mississippi, January 31, 2023 Aplόs Simple Mediterranean, a popular Jackson restaurant, announced Sunday plans to open a sister location at Renaissance at Colony Park in Ridgeland. The sister location recently signed a lease for a space on the green space near the Malco Renaissance Cinema and will begin construction immediately.

The news of a sister location comes alongside the signing of a lease extension and expanded footprint at the restaurant’s original location in Highland Village. This Spring the Aplos Jackson will unveil additional seating, new bar, new technology among other updates at their Jackson- based store.

“We’ve received incredible support since we launched the original Aplos in Highland Village four-and-a-half years ago,” said Alex Eaton, CEO. “In fact, we’ve exceeded our expectations and now we’re ready to take on more by improving our current restaurant and expanding our reach…. It’s time to grow!” Eaton is a native of Ridgeland and group up just a mile away on Old Agency Road.

“We love seeing our designs flourish and multiply,” said Mary Sanders Ferriss Cavicchi, Principal Designer at Ferriss and Company Design Studio, a Jackson-based interior design and branding firm. “Working with an energetic visionary like Alex is a treat. Our team sees real success as he continues to grow his business footprint”

I'm delighted as we have enjoyed several delicious, healthy-ish meals at the HV location, and will now be able to visit more often as it's closer. Great gyros, pizzas, bowls, mezza plate. Between this and Keifers, we will be set for some great food on this side of the interstate. Sorry for the Yelp review, but this is great news.

Kiefers better step up their game. Aplos has a much better gyro.

Disagree on that one. The tuna dip at Aplos is really good. However, check out the burger at Krilakis.

Agree 100%. Different market and talking chains now but wish Jason deli and Outback could give it a try in Ridgeland Or Madison. Jackson kills everything.

Krilakis is legit.

7:52 is spot on.

Ate at Aplos tonight and Keifers earlier in the week and thought the exact same thing. Aplos feta is actually better than Keifers too.

Been a Keifers guy since 1988 and it’s good but Aplos is just a tad better imo.

There is more good about Krilakis than just the burger. I'm no fry eater, but their fries are great too. And the salads are great as well.

You can't have too many Greek restaurants.

I need to try Aplos. As for Krilakes, the salad with gyro meat is my favorite meal in the Metro.

Krilakis is the best. I love their salads.

best gyro meat on the planet is @ Volta in Oxford

IMHO, Keifer's on Poplar has been mostly inedible for over a decade. We eat at Aplos pretty much weekly (Friday night is family movie night, after all). YiaYia's Greek Kitchen gets my vote for best Greek-y food north of County Line. Krilakis makes a pretty durn solid wrap, though, with the fries inside.

I really liked Wraps before that anti-Semite decided to go full-on anti-Semite on the Beth Israel rabbi who had just moved to town. That place shut down soon thenafter, probably because they lost the business of YT Jackson-loving libtards like myself (JK, I think even the thin-skinned RINO-hating conspiracy theorists stopped going).

By my count that will be 9 Greek restaurants in Madison County. Most Greek restaurants per capita?

11:24, I am here for it. Weighing in on the reviews, don’t sleep on Filo’s in Gluckstadt.

Is Greek cuisine healthy? I ain't seen no skinny Greeks.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
