From his small village in central Greece, Tom Goulas brought a piece of his heritage across the pond to share: the cuisine. In 1975 he first founded Honey Tree Grille with the intent of sharing the rich, flavorful food of his native country. Since then, his business has grown three-fold, but Goulas aims to maintain the old-school attention to both the dishes the kitchen sends out and the service. These days, the menu can be found across seven different locations. There, diners will find a handful of familiar American classics alongside Greek staples such as fresh-sliced gyro sandwiches, layered mousaka, and golden, flaky spanikopita.

Put your phalanges forward and their cuticles will be trimmed, edges filed to shapely unsnaggetyness, and nails coated with fresh, even color.
