Chef Zorba's has been in the Congress Park neighborhood since 1979. Chef Zorba’s Greek Restaurant is a true Denver classic in the heart of "Old Greek Town.” In 2000, the Tsiopelas family including Jimmy, Shellie and brother Dino purchased Chef Zorba’s. It had always been a dream of Jimmy Tsiopelas to own a restaurant. Jimmy’s father owned a kafenio in Nestani, Greece. With the Grecian cuisine so important in Greek culture it was natural for Jimmy to want to own a restaurant.
The restaurant went through a major renovation and expansion in 2004. With help, the Tsiopelas family opened the new Chef Zorba’s Family Restaurant. Today, Jimmy and Shellie Tsiopelas run Zorba's with the help of our three great daughters, wait staff and kitchen staff ran by Ruben.
