All in the Family Tradition at Saskatchewan’s Kisavos Greek Restaurant

Petros and Dorothy Itskos had some big aprons to fill when they took over Kisavos Restaurant in Saskatoon, a city in the Canadian province of Saskatchewan, because the eatery was owned by her parents.

Her mother and father worked in restaurants in the city for more than 40 years after coming from Greece and opened Kisavos in 1990, happy to know it would stay in the family as they retired, said the Saskatoon Star Phoenix.

“Home made, hand made, hand crafted, everything is from scratch,” said Petros, who’s been the chef there since it opened, creating the eatery’s menu.

“Many people have heard that my parents sold the restaurant so they thought recipes were going to change, but I’m happy to say, no. My husband is still the cook. They are all his recipes already. So nothing is changing,” said Dorothy.

There’s something else that won’t be changing either: her parents still come by often to help out now and then, Dorothy saying she needed the help because she had been out of the business for 25 years, working as a hairstylist after being a waitress.
