SEATTLE, WA – In partnership with the Greek-American Historical Museum of Washington State, (greeksinwashington.org), the Museum of History and Industry (MOHAI) invites you to travel through history with some of the Puget Sound’s most beloved Greek restaurants and the communities that created and sustained them. The exhibit features vintage photos, videos, menus, artifacts, and other items, along with descriptive text.
Opening day activities for children and families on February 7 will include Greek dance performances at 11AM and 1PM and introductory remarks at 3PM followed by live music and dancing. More information is available at mohai.org.
Greek restaurateurs have been a consistent presence in Washington State for more than a century. Well over 200 Greek-owned restaurants have existed in the Puget Sound region alone, a few continuously since the early 1900s, and over 300 throughout the State of Washington. Restaurants represent the intersection of Greek food, culture, and entrepreneurship, and the profession of choice for many Greeks who put down roots in the area. But beyond the menu, Greek traits were still evident and relationships were the key. Greek traditions of hospitality and building lasting connections with patrons combined to create a code of business that elevates customers to friends.
