I was born in New York and moved to Greenville when I was 5. I grew up here and decided to leave when I was 25. I moved to Chicago and a year later enrolled at LeCordon Bleu Chicago. After finishing culinary school and living in Chicago for about 2 years, Greenville was slowly becoming just a memory. Little did I know what was going on in the town I grew up in: it was becoming a jewel! Four years later my wife and I decided to make the move. My Dream all along was to open a cool, hip Greek restaurant!
I welcome all of you to (jī-rōz), an exclusive farm to table Greek concept!! Come enjoy mezé, Greek cheeses, traditional Greek dishes, in-house charcuterie, in-house pastries and breads, Greek wine, local craft beers and people you will love!
