A little bit about us
The Parthenon has been a family run restaurant for more than 32 years. Owners Angelo and Kathy Laris left Greece & moved to Murfreesboro in 1994, adopting the Parthenon Restaurant from Kathy’s parents, George and Toula. Together Angelo & Kathy bring a blend of experience, knowledge & history that encompasses three generations of restaurateurs.
George & Toula first entered the restaurant business in Tennessee in 1973. Her father, George, was a vintner in Nemea, Greece, home to some of the most famous wineries in Europe. Kathy’s parents inspired her love & knowledge of wine and traditional Greek cuisine, which she shares with each guest who graces the doors of the Parthenon Grille through our extensive wine & menu selections.
Kathy’s husband, Angelo, is an acclaimed chef who studied the culinary arts in Greece, Germany & France. He also owned & operated two highly accredited restaurants in Athens, Greece for 15 years before he & Kathy adopted the Parthenon.
The Parthenon Grille family is delighted to serve you. We have selected a variety of dishes each that is freshly prepared upon order. We serve only the best quality steaks & seafood that we compliment with a variety of our own special homemade sauces. Our pastas, veal & poultry are prepared with only the finest quality produce & tender meats as well. Kathy’s parents passed on a copious amount of knowledge about Greek cuisine & many multi-generational receipts that bring a fresh, yet traditional, selection of Greek entrees to our menu.
We invite you into our restaurant to enjoy exquisite food & know you too will find yourself blessed by the warm embrace of the Parthenon family.
