The Mourgides’ Move Their Dream from New York to No. Carolina

It was a match made in the kitchen, and heaven when Nick and Gayle Mourgides opened Olives: A Greek Kitchen 20 years ago in Rochester, N.Y. Keeping alive a tradition in both their families.

Now it's moved to Manteo, North Carolina but with the same flavor of home-cooked Greek food drawing people like iron filings to a magnet.

After meeting in church, Nick and Gayle said they realized they had a lot in common: both are 100% Greek, had parents who ran Greek diners and grew up in the same area. Nick said right after he met Gayle, he remembered her saying, “one day, we should open up a little Greek place,” reported The Coastland Times.

They opened in March, just as the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic struck and a lockdown limiting them to serving only takeout just weeks after starting up in North Carolina's famed Outer Banks.

 “We couldn’t be happier living here and having a business here,” Gayle shared.

The two came to the Outer Banks with the idea that they would semi-retire, but after finding their Manteo property listed on Craigslist, they fell in love. Again.
