Between 1900 and 1920, more than 350,000 Greeks immigrated to the US. With their long and storied culture, they brought with them their unique cuisine and numerous Greek restaurants were opened by the immigrants in NYC. Through that first generation of immigrants a proud and strong Greek culinary culture remains over a century later from Astoria to Alphabet City and Chelsea to Coney Island.
