Sam and Costa Waez tweaked their Ybor City Acropolis formula for suburban sensibilities, opening at the site of the defunct Tampa Brickyard. The kitchen serves until 3 a.m. on the weekends, midnight during the week. The staff is young, attractive and prone to launching into fits of grapevine dancing at the slightest provocation. They yell "opa!" and break plates, a belly dancer undulates on the weekends, a DJ spins world music late into the night. The shawarma platter is a huge plate packed with soft, warm pita and a pile of shaved meat (a lamb and beef mix), surrounded by roasted veggies, a heap of Greek salad and another of paprika-seasoned fries. Vegetarians will be especially pleased at their options: tahini-heady hummus and baba ghanoush, a roasted veggie sandwich anchored by nutty eggplant; falafel offered as a wrap or app, drizzled with more tangy tahini  sauce.
