Aphrodite, or as the Roman's have named her Venus, is the goddess of love and beauty. It is said that she was born in the beautiful country of Cyprus where the Parpas Family is also from. The love of food and the beautiful Greek-Cypriot culture was brought to New York by the owner Kyriakos Parpas, who could be easily recognized by his signature Greek Captain's hat. Through his passion of catering to others and combining the Greek cuisine with that, that is often found in New York Diners, Venus Restaurant was born.
