Santorini Greek Kitchen in Indianapolis Closes

March 28, 2018

INDIANAPOLIS – Taki and Jeanette Sawi, the owners of Santorini Greek Kitchen, announced that they will close their Santorini Greek Kitchen restaurant on March 31.

While the restaurant will be closing on this Saturday, March 31. Taki will continue cooking Greek food and sharing it with the Indianapolis community through a new Greek catering company, Santorini Greek Kitchen Catering, nuvo.net reports.

Follows Santorini Greek Kitchen owners’  announcement made via Facebook:

“We would love to continue forever. We would love to have the energy we had in our 30s. But due to circumstances beyond our control, we are choosing to close Santorini Greek Kitchen on March 31, 2018. We want to end the way we started, with good intentions and high quality. It is truly difficult for us to foresee a future without Santorini Greek kitchen in our lives. However, due to health changes, we must. As some of you are very aware, in October, we attempted to make some changes. We soon came to the conclusion, we were wrong.
We came back home to the restaurant. We were happy to do that.
However, it is time for this part of our story to end.
Not to say, we will go away completely. Taki is still very able and willing to make his Style of Greek food available to anyone. He will be opening up Santorini Greek Kitchen Catering. It will be housed at the Biltwell Event Center, 950 S. White River Parkway W., Drive in Indianapolis. The phone number is 317-917-1117. We will have catering for pick up or delivery, with a minimum of 10 people and $100. We will have a new catering menu coming out for your convenience and information will follow.
Taki and I both feel that we started the restaurant together and we should end it together. I am unable to continue in the capacity that I was. And Taki can’t do everything on his own. This is the best solution we could come up with. Thank you for your support and presents over the past 18 years. It’s truly been an honor and a privilege to feed you, body and soul.
Sincerely, Taki and Jeanette”
