When in Rome (NY) Do as Greeks Do – Eat at Koulouris’ Truck

Stathis (Steve) Koulouris and his Greek Restaurant & Gyros have long been a big hit in Rome, NY and with so many hungry mouths to feed he’s going to open another location in a take-out spot.

Instead of standing outside the truck waiting for a two-fisted size lamb gyro, his customers can do it outside the restaurant that will be easy to spot with Parthenon-style columns outside beckoning, said The Rome Sentinel.

He said he, his father, and family will do the construction, a long way from his career start as a plumber on Long Island when he decided to do what they do best: open a restaurant.

“My family owned restaurants in the Bronx,” said Koulouris. “My parents are right from Greece, and when they came over” to the United States, “my dad, Jerry, started a restaurant and my mom, Irene, got involved.”

He also told the paper: “As a child the one thing I remember growing up in a Greek home and surrounded by my relatives is the food,” he said. “Now it is my turn to share that food with you.”


STATEN ISLAND – It seemed as though the entire Greek community of Staten Island, the parish of Holy Trinity - Saint Nicholas, including the participants in its youth programs, Greek and Sunday schools, ‘Syllogos Kritiki Filoxenia' - Cretan Hospitality association, the Pancyprians of Staten Island ‘Aphrodite’ and the Hellenic Classical Charter school turned out for this year’s Greek Independence parade on 5th Avenue in Manhattan.
