High Rent Demand During COVID-19 Closes Tucscon’s Greek Εatery

February 13, 2021
It wasn't COVID-19 that brought the end of the Greek eatery Fronimo's in Tuscson but a high rent demand that pushed it out, to the unhappiness of many satisfied customers, such as Julie Jennings Patterson of the Tucson Sentinel.
She reported the owners, George and Tracy Fronimakas, posted on social media they were facing an “astronomical” rent increase if they wanted to renew their lease after taking a hit during the pandemic that limited business.
They couldn't, and are looking for another location to reopen, hoping the faithful will follow them with their noses for the scent of Greek food and their appetites too for dishes such as Athenian chicken, pastitsio, braised lamb shanks, an “insanely great house recipe for avgolemono soup, and a lemony rice pilaf,” she said.
It opened in 1995 and also offered comfort food such as souvlaki, cheeseburgers, patty melts, and Greek-style french fries, drowned down with retsina if you wanted.
“Throughout my young adulthood, Fronimo’s was a constant friend,” she wrote, a place where she could get great food cheap, such as tuna melts and that creamy feta on top of the juicy burgers.
