According to a recent article from Shaw Local, The Flame Traditional Greek Grill is expanding to DeKalb, located at 209 E Lincoln Hwy.
A representative of The Flame Traditional Greek Grill was not immediately available for commentary upon What Now Chicago’s request.
While an official opening date has yet to be released, according to the article from Shaw Local, “The space is now nearly set to reopen under new patronage. The 209 E. Lincoln Highway building is owned by Pappas Development, dubbed Plaza DeKalb. The building has apartments on the top floor and retail on the ground level.”
“Owner Foti Pappas said he’s excited about his plans to open the Greek restaurant. John Pappas of Pappas Development has a background in the restaurant industry. Foti is John Pappas’ son. Pappas remained mum about a specific opening date, only saying that the restaurant is expected to open soon,” the article adds.
Another article from Shaw Local, written back in September of this year, states “Pappas remains mum about what exactly is on the restaurant’s menu – at least for now. “The Flame will offer homemade traditional Greek dishes served with the highest quality fresh ingredients that have been passed down in my family for generations,” Pappas said.”
When it comes to Pappas Development, the company website states “The Pappas family has lived in the DeKalb/Sycamore area for more than 50 years. Pappas Development has developed properties for Northern Illinois University as well as throughout the DeKalb/Sycamore area over the past 30 years. They are invested in the community and they believe in the opportunity found here.”
