produced a 60-page, glossy softbound book sharing the title A PLACE AT
THE TABLE which features photos, narrative and quotes about Greek-owned
and -operated restaurants and suppliers from 1900 to 1970.
The book served as her capstone project for her master’s degree and is
available for sale for $30.00 (includes postage and handling).
It can be obtained by sending your check or money order to:
GREEKS IN WASHINGTON

Washington continue and grow. A perfect gift!

staff that "know the customers and remember you when you come
back-even if it's months later."
