GAHSP announces 6th Annual Photo Tour: “Greek Diners and Restaurants – The Start of the American Dream”

August 15, 2019 in Events

Greek Diners and Restaurants

Mention the word diner, and most people immediately think of Greeks. What was it that turned simple folk that arrived in America from the villages, towns, and cities of Greece into some of the most successful diner owners in the country, not to mention some of the best cooks?

From the earliest years of the 20th Century to the present, Greeks have been associated with the diner/restaurant business, which not only is the central spot for the American community but the foundation of the Greek-American communities they are in. They are places where people meet their neighbors and have a good meal. For many customers, the Greek-owned diner/restaurant is a place where they remember going as a child and now bring their grandchildren. It is a unique institution, not only throughout the United States but in the Delaware Valley where the diner is the part of the epicenter of the diner/restaurant business of the greater New York and New Jersey area where it all began.

The Greek American Heritage Society of Philadelphia is proud to honor and present the history of Greek-owned diners/restaurants. The families that operated them, the famous diner/restaurant names, the food, the atmosphere, their importance to the community in general, and the photographs that captured it all for more than a century.
