Not Even Lemonis Could Save New Haven’s Greek Olive from COVID

November 20, 2021

After 20 years in business, the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic has closed New Haven’s The Greek Olive restaurant that had been kept afloat partially due to an initiative supporting eateries from Marcus Lemonis’ TV show The Profit.

Owner Tony Antonakis posted on social media that the restaurant’s last day of business was Oct. 30 and wanted to thank the community for the years of support, said CT Insider.

“It is a terrible feeling,” he said in an email with Hearst Connecticut Media. “This is not how I wanted it to end after working 90 hours a week along with my wife for the last 20 years. I expected to be in a position to sell and slow down as the age is catching up with us, but when COVID came in it all turned to hell on earth.”

Their daughter, Jennnie, tweeted their plight to Lemonis’ show and the multimillionaire personality set up a $100,000 program for local restaurants trying to hang on.

The Greek Olive raised $7,000 and continued to deliver to local organizations based on need but couldn’t just keep it going any more.
