The owners of “It’s All Greek To Me” are a family team. A sister, Effie, her husband, Jon and her Brother, Gerry. Ephigenia & Gerrys heritage is deeply entrenched in the greek culture. Originally born in Montreal Canada, their family has had a multitude of successful restaurants. Their heritage is from the Largest Greek Island in the Ionian Sea. Its name is Kefalonia. (For those who have never heard of the island. Its ok. You are not the first or the last. What we can tell you is that a well know movie was made there, Captain Carellies Mandoline, starting Nicholas Cage. )
Both Ephgienia and Gerrys spouses are not Greek, but have fallen involve with the culture and the food. Hurricane Irma drove Ephgienia , Jon and their 2 little boys, Nickolas and Bobby, to Fairhope Alabama, to escape the the storm. They packed up their bags, not knowing if they would have a home to return to. 26 hours later, they arrived at Farihope AL. It instantly felt like home. What was suppose to be a 2 day stay, ended up being a 7 day stay. During that time, they bought a house and signed a lease for this restaurant. Crazy right? Everything happens for a reason.
