Remember that crazy Center City water main break back in July — the one that gushed more than 15 million gallons of water at Juniper and Sansom Streets? Businesses closed, SEPTA routes were detoured, and a few close-by Midtown Village restaurants — Greek spot Opa among them — spent weeks or months undergoing repairs.

Well, Opa reopens tonight, Friday, October 5th, at 4 p.m. after three months of cleanup and restoration. At the same time they were dealing with flood fallout, management took the opportunity to freshen up the interior — changing up the wall decor, staining and painting in darker colors — and give the menu a few tweaks.

They’ve added a few new items, like zucchini chips, and and refreshed the fillings in their filo and pita pies. They’re also making a new style of filo dough from Greece’s Epirus region, where owners George Tsiouris and Vasiliski Tsiouris are from — it’s a bit thicker and more rustic that before (but still delicious).

Check out their updated menu below (click to embiggen).
