a little slice of Greece in Cranston, Rhode Island

starting them young in the kitchen, John’s New York System

This is a great article that recently appeared in the food section of the Providence Journal.  They feature a Greek-American establishment which opened its doors in Cranston, RI back in 1948. Pareskavoula Degaitas, the matriarch of the Degaitas clan which I have affectionally discussed in previous posts, opened John’s New York System with her husband back in 1948.

It's a well written piece on the joys and hard work of immigrant families in promoting the tastes of their ancestral homes.
