Now he carries on the family tradition.Hari and his best friend and Santorini Grill co-owner Peter Symeon were getting to know their new neighbors in Hickory’s Northwest corner, and introducing them to a full menu of Greek-Mediterranean style foods prepared meticulously from all-natural ingredients by Executive chef Zachary Pilkington.
