Owner Evan Christou said he invested a couple of million dollars into his business to build a brand new building.
"We believe in this community. My family has been here over 50 years. We wanted to continue the tradition in the town, and we needed to bring the building into the 21st century," Christou said.
He said running a business in New York can be challenging, with energy costs and taxes, but the community has really embraced the restaurant.
"We are very honored that the Chamber has recognized our commitment to the community," Christou said.
