The Aegean Table opened its doors three weeks ago, and is operated by co-owners Laura Zeppos and Rita Vranesic.
Previously the business was the R.C. Deli, which was in the same location for 20 years.
While Zeppos and Vranesic ran the deli they were known for their Greek items such as Baklava, Spanakopita, and a rice pudding called Rizogalo.
Because there were no local suppliers for the ingredients to make those and other Greek items, Zeppos and Vranesic traveled to other cities to purchase them.
In August 2015, Vranesic and Zeppos decided to bring what they were traveling around for to Lebanon. Since opening the store Zeppos and Vranesic have seen a lot of customers walk through their doors.
With the new store Zeppos and Vranesic are still able to provide the Greek olive oil to their customers are looking for while also offering even more items than before.
Zeppo’s whole family is from Greece and she is a first generation Greek-American.A new place to find Greek Olive Oil has opened recently in Lebanon,
