This restaurateur was known in the 1950's as "Tom the Greek." He owned a restaurant in downtown Fresno for many years. It was located next to the "Builders Exchange" office (don't know the address). Does anyone know anything about this man or his restaurant?

You should send the question to the "ASK ME" feature of the Fresno Bee. Every other Sunday the columnist provides great answers.

Wasn't the restaurant called " The Athenian ", on Van Ness, about two blocks west of Courthouse Park?

My 88 year-old mother can't remember the name of the place, but says it was near the old Fresno Hotel.

I am researching the history of the Fresno Builders Exchange, and would love to know more about your memories of the Exchange and Harry Cayford!

The address of the Builders Exchange was 1837 Merced, if that helps.
