The Liakopoulos and Laskaris Family proudly welcomes you to the Plymouth Restaurant & Bar! The patriarch of our family, Odysseas Liakopoulos, came to Chicago in 1956 from his native Greece. After working as a painter for a year, he opened the Victory Restaurant at 18th and Wabash, with the help of three friends. Together, they went on to found the LaSalle Cafeteria on Wabash and Harrison in 1965. Both of these successful restaurants were later torn down to make way for residential and retail development.
The disco year of 1974 brought Odysseas and his partners to Mount Prospect, where they established Kallens Restaurant & Lounge. Odysseas soon brought George, his 13-year-old son, to the new restaurant to bus tables and wash dishes. The industrious young man quickly worked his way up to the position of cook. In 1984, Odysseas decided to leave the suburbs and return to the city. He purchased the former Golden Nugget Restaurant, on the corner of Lincoln and Wellington in the Lakeview neighborhood, and renamed it the Golden Apple.
