Say hello to the multi-talented Chris Kaos. Born and raised in Boston, MA. Chris had spent his childhood life performing and competing as a Breakdancer. After years of dancing to the same old music, he decided to start producing his own music that he and his team could dance to. After a friend convinced him to play his music live at his High School dance (circa 2008), he then immediately grew fond of the art of DJing. Fast forward to today, and he still is tearing up dance floors. This time, from behind the DJ booth.

We had the pleasure of catching up with the amazing Demetri Tsolakis. For those that don't know, his footprint in Boston began with Committee Ouzeri + Bar and has extended to fast-casual Greco, and, most recently, Krasi Meze & Wine. Except for the fact that each concept is rooted in Greek culture, they are all very distinct from one another, with almost zero menu overlap. If that link to Greek culture forms the fabric of the restaurants, it’s Tsolakis’s deft touch as a restaurateur along with his creativity and his passion for all things Greek that are the threads tying them all together.
