Restaurant Sees Growth, Expansion, Even During Economic Recession
It’s All Greek To Me, located at 2716 Frankfort Avenue, is pleased to announce its expansion after taking over the building next door, adding an additional 750 square feet of dining space to the restaurant’s current location. The expanded seating area opened on November 19, when a grand re-opening and ribbon cutting was held that featured free tastings and belly dancers. A new dinner menu was also introduced.
“Our customers have requested more space for the dining area, and this expansion allows us to accommodate that demand with little renovation, and without leaving Frankfort Avenue,” remarks Owner and Chef Maria Bell. “Next, we will focus on obtaining a beer and wine license, which is another big desire our customers have expressed.”
It’s All Greek To Me opened on Frankfort Avenue in July 2009. The menu features authentic Greek dishes made fresh daily, including stuffed grape leaves, spinach cheese pie, hummus, gyros, salads and baklava. For more information, including a complete menu, visit www.itsallgreektomelouisville.com, or call (502) 895-0555.

Louisville Metro Offers New Mobile Apps
Mayor Jerry Abramson’s technology team, who maintain the city’s award-winning website, www.louisvilleky.gov, is now offering new smart phone apps that can keep citizens connected to city services and information on the go.
The new “Louisville Mobile” app, which can now be downloaded from both the iPhone and the Android stores, includes the city’s top stories, news and events, and also has restaurant inspection scores and a feature that allows you to find things to do at local Metro Parks by location and feature. Visit www.louisvilleky.gov/mobileapps to learn more and link to the downloads.
The new Restaurant Inspection Scores app gives information based on how far the user is from the restaurant searched. The same is true for the Park Finder app, allowing one to find out how far it is to the nearest walking path in a Metro Park from where they are, for instance.
“Creating mobile apps keeps us in stride with what citizens are experiencing today,” says Abramson. “They expect their government to keep up with technology and keep them connected to information and services on the go.”
Metro Technology Services, the technology team for Metro Government, is now working on delivering junk pickup dates, garbage dates and recycling information to the iPhone and Android. Those and other apps will be available in coming months.
Metro Technology Services wants to know what mobile apps and data residents want from city government. Visit http://www.louisvilleky.gov/Technology/mobileappcontact.htm to send feedback to the city’s technology team.
