IN MEMORIAM

On November 4, 2014, Gus Vlahavas, longtime proprietor of Tom’s Restaurant in Prospect Heights, passed away due to respiratory complications. He was beloved by so many and his warmth and spirit will be greatly missed. It was our privilege to spend time with him, and he taught us the true meaning of the Greek word filoxenia – “You welcome the stranger like a friend, and then you absorb them in and make them like your family.” Our thoughts and love go out to his family.
