After 20 Years, Lincoln, Nebraska Loses The Parthenon Greek Grill

A two-decade fixture in Lincoln, Nebraska – the Parthenon Greek Grill and Taverna – is closing its doors but its sought-after Greek dishes will still be available through a catering-only format in a new location and it operates Kouzina Food Truck.

“When The Parthenon opened in 2002, we had no idea what it would turn into, and all the friends and family we would make,” The Parthenon owners George and Mike Kazas said in a Facebook post, reported KOLN.

“We can’t thank you all enough for the past 20 years, and we want to reassure you that we’ll still be here, simply in a different way. Anything good in this day and age has to reinvent itself — and that’s exactly what the Parthenon is doing. Instead of you coming to us, we are now coming to you!”

Its spot will be taken by The Mettle Grill, specializing in homemade American food and beer from local breweries.

“I respect and admire everything George and Mike have done to make the Parthenon a fixture in the Lincoln community,” Susantha Weerasinghe, owner of The Mettle Grill said.



National Pancake Day, celebrated on February 28, is an exciting event that brings people together to commemorate the deliciousness of pancakes.
