Jones Salsa Salsa of Smithtown NOMINEE PROFILE Spiro’s Come visit us at Spiro’s Restaurant & Lounge in Rocky Point and enjoy our great Greek food that is out of this world. Our menu, our drinks, and our ambiance, all add up to an extraordinary experience that you’ve got to try firsthand. Our roots started humbly. Born in 1954 in Greece, Spiro Karachopan began working on cruise ships as an apprentice for various ships before landing in New York and honing his cooking skills by working in restaurants in Manhattan and Long Island. In 1980 he opened his first place, the Sea Basin Restaurant. Now known for a restaurant that proudly bears his name, Spiro embraces his success with humility while striving for culinary perfection. His trademark dishes include Spiro’s Famous Baked Clams, Grilled Shrimp and Eggplant, and Sauteed Shrimp Athenian, which has a touch of anisette along with the fresh tomato and feta cheese. And those are just some of the appetizers. For the main course, there’s Roast Long Island Duck, Rack of Lamb, Wasabi Crusted Ahi Tuna, and Chicken and Grilled Eggplant Sorrentino, just to name a few. No meal is complete without one of Spiro’s delicious desserts, so why not indulge with Toasted Almond Tiramisu, Creme Brulee or Chocolate Mousse Cake! The cocktails are inspired, the cuisine is exceptional, and the experience is unforgettable. Check us out at www.spiroslounge.com.
