After 40 years in Farmington Hills, MI, brothers Peter and Johnny Ginopolis are closing their restaurant, getting an offer to sell the building so that it could be an assisted living center.
“We feel this is the right time. I’m at an age where I want to kind of slow down a bit,” Johnny told Fox2 Detroit. They don’t know yet when it will close. The walls are adorned with photos of celebrities who ate there, including Frank Sinatra, Elizabeth Taylor, Bob Hope and Muhammad Ali.
“A lot of things have happened here in the last 40 years on this corner,” Johnny said. “Only in America, two little Greek boys from Detroit get a chance to meet all these people,” Johnny said.
“You know he called us by first name,” Peter chimed in, talking about Frank Sinatra. “And we called him by first name.”
