SO, WHAT’S IT TAKE TO BECOME AN OVERNIGHT SUCCESS?
In 1956, a 32 year old greek guy from Sparta, Greece, walked through the archway of Pier 21 on the waterfront (aptly, next to the Seaport Farmer's Market) with a dream and a hope of a better life for his young family back home. He was soon working in what would later be known as The Spartan Restaurant on Quinpool. Within a year, he was reunited with his young wife, Georgia, their daughter and two sons, in their new home... Halifax, Nova Scotia.
Mr. George, as he was soon known by many, took over a small diner at the corner of Barrington & Morris (just down from the very popular Morris East); worked hard, learned quick, and made friends easy. The family was soon working hard in the restuarant business, and has been ever since.
FAST FORWARD 50 YEARS TO 2007
The 23 year old grandson of Mr. George decides to get into the family business. He's already involved in the budding locavore movement with Sean Gallagher, a schoolmate at Dalhousie University, where they run 'Fresh', a food bar in the basement of the Graywood, that would soon evolve into Local Source Market, now located just down the road from Ace, on Charles Street. The young Mr. George works hard, learns quick, and makes friends easily.
