  • shiki said: A total dining experience And while he certainly didn't love the menial job of folding pizza boxes, he concedes that it didn't do him any harm to learn the business of food from the bottom up. Today, kyritsis is president and general manager of the well known marco polo restaurant in summit, and well versed on every aspect of everything from the kitchen to the operation and personnel management that his position requires.Pleasure of anticipating a 50th anniversary in 2016. "Now that's a milestone,"He said with justifiable pride. Family is probably the taproot of all that has been, and hopefully will be in this restaurant that celebrates the cuisine of cypress, and culinary tradition passed along through the generations. Both kyritsis and apostolou have children approaching the ages when they might consider carrying on the tradition, a legacy that would please their fathers. "But only if they want to do it, and do it with pride,"Kyritsis said. That pride is in many things, including an extensive wine list and bar and food based on the deceptively simple premise of presenting that which is fresh and not disguised from its origins.In other words, marco polo's president explains, close to its basic and inherent goodness. An expansive menu relies on that principle.Specialties that never go out of style are the foods served during greek week, celebrated at the restaurant every quarter to put a sharper focus on the classic greek/cypress cuisine.The next greek week will be in january. But like marco polo himself, this eponymously named restaurant is outto explore and discover new ways of presenting world cuisines, with a special tilt toward the italian. House specialties include calamari balsamic, homemade lasagna, the finest chicken saut in good olive oil and anointed with homemade pesto, a vital ingredient in many of the restaurant's varied dishes. And be forewarned:Leave some room for the glorious tiramisu, a grandpa recipe that never changes, but perennially delights. Among kyritsis' passions is a commitment to service and hospitality that literally begins at the front door. "I'm a firm believer that making the right hiring decisions is the single most important judgment call i can make,"Said kyritsis, who chooses the restaurant's serving staff based on the notion that you can teach skills, especially to young people, but that basic character and decency must be in place first. "I ask certain very specific questions that reveal a lot about who that job candidate really is,"He said. "I'm especially interested in things like whether there's been some experience with team sports, or with helping others. " It may not be typical business practice, but for kryitsis, it makes good common sense. "Our customers remember a total experience, not just the food. " One of the pleasures that the partnersat marco polo cherish often comes during the holiday season, when multigenerational families return to the restaurant for reunions and parties. 5:03AM 09/01/15
