New Jersey’s Local Greek Tony Kanterakis Taking Big Bites Now

It didn’t take long for Tony Kanterakis to get a loyal following when he opened his first Local Greek restaurant in New Jersey college town Princeton and within a couple of years he opened an offshoot, Small Ties, focused on takeout and delivery, a good idea during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Now, said NJ.com, he’s added a third restaurant in Lambertville, where there weren’t any, giving him an open field and there was a quick acceptance. “We are getting customers from beyond Lambertville,” he said. “From New Hope (Pennsylvania) and other surrounding towns. We already have regulars.”

In Lambertville Kanterakis has taken over the former It’s Nutts restaurant, which is set back from the street and is adjacent to the Raritan Canal, offering a setting for outdoor dining, the site reported.

The restaurant has been renovated and the report said the indoors is charming and rustic and there’s an open kitchen for diners to see what’s going on as their food is being prepared.

The menu at both restaurants is the same and still features the traditional Greek dishes Kanterakis ate while growing up, although changed and refined too.
