The Christou Family’s Mediterranean Ardana Eatery: Greek, Cypriot

Ardana Food & Drink will open in March in Newtown, Pennsylvania but co-owner Mike Christou says while he and brother Antoni draw on their Cypriot roots for the food that it won’t exactly be Cypriot, or Greek.

“We call it Mediterranean because we pull inspiration, dishes, flavors, and ideas from that whole region of the world,” he said. “You have the fresh, light coastal flavors of Cyprus. You have pastas and pizzas from Italy. And you have the spices and flavors of the Middle East. We cover that whole area of the world,” he told Patch.com.

The brothers grew up in the town not far from Trenton, New Jersey and this is their second Ardana. “We are so excited. We can’t wait to show people why we are so passionate about this concept, the quality of the food we’re serving and the level of service we provide,” he added.

The restaurant gets its name from Árdana, a small farming community in Cyprus rich in culinary culture where the Christou’s grandmother was raised the site reported, and they want to make guests think they are dining in the Mediterranean.
