Glen Cove has a new restaurant devoted to seafood called Captain Greek on 284 Glen Street.
A ribbon cutting took place to officially open the restaurant with the first guests being the Chamber of Commerce, city officials, friends, clerics and family.
Mayor Spinello at the ceremony congratulated the owners Nick and Niki Kritikos and their families on their delicious new entry to the city’s great restaurant offerings. Chamber of Commerce President Hender Alvarado and Legislator Delia Deriggi-Whitton gave certificates to the family welcoming them to Glen Cove. Following the ribbon cutting a brief religious ceremony was held inside by clerics from Holy Resurrection Greek Orthodox Church. A quick tour of the restaurant showed visitors the seafood themed restaurant having a display of large fresh fish on ice and a lobster tank with the largest one being 12 pounds! The Kritikis family then treated everyone to a light buffet seafood lunch. For information go to www.greekcaptain.com
