New massive Greek restaurant opening in Mississauga


Published October 8, 2022 at 12:16 pm

A new Greek style restaurant is coming to Mississauga, in the building where The Muddy Duck lived for over four decades.

Renovations for the Fat Fork are currently underway at 2200 Dundas St. E. with hopes of opening the restaurant by December. An official opening date is soon to be announced.

Brothers Nick and Gus Danicas are the pair behind the latest business venture, sharing the hashtag #ProjectSouvlaki on their social pages.

They plan to serve souvlaki, steak, burgers, sandwiches and all-day breakfast. And the brothers also plan to stay open late.

“We’re bringing back late-night eats,” Nick told

Their father, Peter Danicas, was a partner in Zet’s Restaurant for about 25 years and both brothers worked in the place.

“We used to do that night shift with all the club people coming in,” Nick said.

The location under renovations previously housed The Muddy Duck, a family-orientated eatery known for its buffet meals and hosting group functions since 1978.

The Muddy Duck closed on Nov. 7, 2021 amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Lately, Nick and Gus have been working to renovate the nearly 6,000-square-foot location. They’ve re-designed the whole layout and plan to include large TVs in the dining area.

“It’s a big project,” Nick said.

Peter Danicas is part of his sons’ latest business venture as well, applying his restaurant expertise.

“He’s had multiple restaurants, so we’ve learned everything from him,” Gus said. “He’ll still be around, helping us out and coaching us through a lot of it.”

Digital concept designs were shared on Fat Fork’s Instagram, showing a white, yellow, and black colour scheme.

As for the landmark duck that used to be outside The Muddy Duck, Nick and Gus don’t know what happened to it.

“Unfortunately, the duck was gone before we got here,” Nick said.

“That’s the actual number one question people are asking us,” Gus added.
