The large and thematic patio at It’s Greek
to Me was added to the restaurant in the early 2000s.

Alkis, Argyrios and Denise Arambadjis opened It’s Greek To Me in 1982 at the corner of Lake & Lyndale as a 10-table cafe. Over the decades, they expanded the space to include a much larger dining area and installed a patio space in the early 2000s.

The Arambadjis family retired in 2016 after selling the restaurant.
