The Whole Pita a.k.a. The Greek Island Grille a.k.a. Thasos

Costa Mesa's The Whole Pita (a.k.a. “The Greek Island Grill”) is now known as “Thasos – Greek Island Grille”. 

Same owners, same food (for the most part), but a new name. 

Why did the place pull a Sean “Puff Daddy/P. Diddy/Diddy” Combs on us? I called and asked. They have a few new items, they said. I didn't really press on to get them to really tell me why “Thasos” was better than “The Whole Pita”, because I kind of already knew. 
“The Whole Pita” sounds like a place that focuses on just, well, pitas — and why pigeonhole yourself when you don't have to, especially when Greek food has more to it than pitas. 
Plus, Thassos is an actual Greek island! 
In any case, I was glad to see that they were sticking it out. In this economy, you do whatever you can, even if you have to follow the playbook of a self-promoting rap mogul.
