Grecos in Pasadena
I saw some posts in the past that asked questions about Grecos on Green Street and speculated about the old location on Fair Oaks Ive got some info
I heard a number of things about why Grecos closed. The last I heard was from someone that works at the place across the street; apparently the owner posted a I hate everyone note on the door which blamed the economy, the government and disloyal customers for the restaurants closure. The reality is it failed because the owner forgot what made a good restaurant. He stopped caring about his customers and the quality of his food and he started to focus on himself and how great he was He blamed his failure on every one else but himself. The bottom line is the restaurant failed because Ross Greco failed. Theres no one else to blame
As for the old location on Fair Oaks
it wasnt bought out by a relative. Its now Gales Restaurant. And Gale Kohl is doing a wonderful job with the place. You can see her and her husband Rene working the restaurant. I know a little bit about the restaurant as Ive become a very loyal customer to Gale and Rene
She has been working in the business for some 20 years catering to a number of celebs. Gales is her first restaurant and shes seems to be pouring her heart and soul into shes there almost every night with her husband Rene If you havent been there yet, youve got to try it. The food is the best in town. And the service is great. If youre in Old Town shopping, Id say stop by there for lunch. And make a reservation for Dinner on your way out.
