Opa! on the go will be helmed by Chef de Cuisine George Gounelas, known throughout the East End for his revival of the once classic Old Stove Pub back to its perch as one of the most popular restaurants on the East End.
George has been in the Food Service and Hospitality business since he was 6 years old working in his fathers Long Island Diner. George has worn every possible hat in the food service business while growing up in his family’s restaurant. When his father retired, George became a Special Education teacher in the NYC school system and an Investment Advisor. Although he decided to return to his roots in the hospitality industry by accepting an executive management role at Nammos Restaurant in Southampton, he continues to mentor special needs children as a volunteer. His work ethic and passion for cooking his family’s delicious recipes has led him on an incredible journey. In 2011, George was promoted to General Manager at “Old Stove Pub” in Sagaponack to revive the once classic restaurant. Since George taking the helm, the New York Times review in 2015 says it best “In the midst of this offbeat atmosphere is some very good food, including an excellent Spanakopita and a delicious Gyro.” He looks forward to honoring is family’s legacy with diner favorites and of course good old fashioned Greek food with “Opa On the Go”
