Drove past Normandy Isles' Ariston Restaurant on 71st Street the other night and noticed that it is no more. Don't know when this happened, but it's a shame -- we liked the place enough to name it our Best Greek Restaurant last year.
From the website:
Regretfully, Ariston has closed it's doors for the last time!
Thank you to all of our patrons for your support and company. We bid you all farewell and wish you all the best...
With all due respect,
Athanasios L. Barlos
and the rest of the team!
