About

Serving traditional Greek and Cypriot cuisine for over 31 years, Zenon Taverna is a full service restaurant offering lunch, dinner, take out & delivery and specializes in catering. The second floor banquet room is perfect for weddings, showers, baptisms, birthdays and business meetings.  Full service off site catering is available for event spaces, offices and homes in the tri-state.

In Greece and Cyprus meals are social events where a family shares and passes along its values and traditions. Trained as a chef at the Hotel and Catering Institute of Cyprus and with the knowledge of his home cuisine, Stelios Papageorgiou left for America in hopes of one day opening up a restaurant and bringing the Cypriot cuisine to his new home land.  Working three jobs and keeping his goals in sight, in 1988 he was able to open up his restaurant.  With family and tradition as the foundation of the restaurant Stelios was able to realize his dream.  Now run by his son in law, the restaurant continues to offer not just its traditional cuisine but the same values brought over by Stelios all those years ago.

“Zenon Taverna is the closest you're going to get to eating in Cyprus without actually getting on a plane. I'm ashamed that it took me so long to finally get myself here, given all the lovely meals I've had in Cyprus over the years. My daughter and I had the pleasure of meeting three generations of the Papageorgiou family - including the incredibly warm and welcoming Stelios. Thank you to the entire crew at ZT and I can't wait to get back again!”

"The owners have been cooking in their own kitchen for over 40 years and clearly love their work. People hold lively conversations all over the dining room, and you can still hear each other at your own table.
