George Varnasidis is a Greek with a gift
...
Questions are optional around George, as he's known by all, customers and staff. And he's known by customers at Athens on 4th Avenue because he makes it a point to be known. George will readily bring up his own discussion topics.

"We don't own a deep fryer," George said while expounding on the virtues of olive oil.
...
George is a defining presence at Athens on 4th. He greets patrons, chats with them like family, is famous for his wine recommendations, may take an order, may even cook up a dish or two and "I do a majority of the prep."
It's hard to believe George has been on the scene for only two or so years. He came to Tucson from San Diego with his wife, Cyriana, the daughter of Athens owner Andreas Delfakis. Cyriana had moved to San Diego a few years earlier.
When the Varnasidis pair arrived, Delfakis offered them co-ownership and George serves as general manager, whatever that means.
...
"It's everything," George said.
...
George is a people person.
"I look at people like a TV show," George said.
...
George has a pet peeve about restaurants that turn customers away near closing time.
...
I never wanted to do management," George said. "Here I just let the staff be themselves."
George recruited server/hostess Sam Lemons at a service station, where he was impressed with her nice retail attire as she stood at a pump.
"Everybody loves George," Lemons said.
...
Everybody comes to see George."
...
George dug out Voss' business card from the stack of cards he pulled from his pocket.
...
George, 51, lived his first 12 years in a little village in Greece before his family headed to Germany on the way to Chicago, where he lived for 30 years.
