Their dream of opening a restaurant began in 1986, when Kathleen Malloy and chef Christos Tsardounis first met. Thirteen years later, they opened Aspasia in the Huron Village neighborhood outside Harvard Square. Aspasia (pronounced ah-spa-shia) is the name of an ancient Greek champion of women’s rights to culture and education. It literally means “greatly welcomed.” The restaurant’s concept is simple: amazing food, beautiful surroundings and a welcoming atmosphere. The Mediterranean /new American food and warm decor speak for themselves. Malloy and Tsardounis take care of the great welcome. Take a peek at Christos’ fantastic fall menu.
