from Angelo:

“I started TNG because I miss authentic Greek food, and I want to share my love and passion for it with others. I try hard to represent the cuisine as traditionally and authentically as possible, and my goal is to spread an appreciation of it throughout the Twin Cities. In order for food to be authentic, the ingredients need to be fresh, and the recipes need to be straight from Greece.

I was inspired to open TNG by my father, who also opened a restaurant after finishing his career. It's located in the most magical village in Greece, in a walled city with no cars. He bought a house in the center of the marketplace and transformed it into the restaurant I grew up in.

So far, the most rewarding part of this experience has been the people...I get hugs from customers, that's amazing! I am so thankful that the Greek community and the neighborhood have embraced us, it means so much to me.”

naughty is nice!

We’re a fast-casual restaurant in St Paul, with a passion for bringing Greek hospitality to the Twin Cities!  We specialize in scratch-made Athenian Street food with hand-layered pork & chicken spits, family recipes, and a magical combination of local and imported Greek ingredients.
