Feel like Greece @ Aleko’s Village Cafe, a Greek restaurant in Middletown, MD, USA!
“Aleko (Alex) was an orphaned Greek immigrant who came to the US in 1950, in search of a better life from his war ravaged home land Greece. He made his home in Washington DC and worked as the waiter of choice for President Eisenhower at the Occidental restaurant for many years. After marrying the woman of his dreams, Theoni (a 18 year old immigrant maid to an embassy family) they opened there first restaurant together on Riggs Road in Washington DC called “Alex’s Restaurant.” Aleko was a true connoisseur of fine food, he even taught his wife to cook, something unheard of in his time! Five children and 4 restaurants later they retired from the restaurant business only to leave a legacy to us, there Children. Hence, Aleko’s Village Café.”
