Landmark MA Restaurant Closing

For the past 50 years, Christo’s Restaurant in Brockton has been one of the most popular eateries around attracting customers from New Bedford to Boston. Known for their Greek specialties, including the former Massachusetts governor Michael Dukakis dubbing Christo “The Greek Salad King,” Christo’s was famous for their pizza, seafood and comfort foods. Christo Tsaganis was the poster boy for the classic American immigrant success story. Coming to this country with $8 in his pocket, not knowing a word of English, but had a desire to work harder than anyone around him and make a name for himself. Mission accomplished, as Tsaganis was inducted into the Restaurant Hall of Fame in 2001 and the Food Industry Hall of Fame in 2007. Following his death last February, daughters Gigi Johnson and Maria Samson announced the landmark restaurant, with its colored rooms, like “the gold room,” would be closing on December 31. Longtime customers and employees will say goodbye to each other soon and to an institution built with hard work, great food and loyal customers for the last 50 years.
