The Ultimate Family Experience
Food brings people together. From pizza parties as children to lunch meetings as adults, food is not just a necessity but part of a lifestyle. Greg Kahn grew up around restaurants while his father ran a food distribution company and knew that one day, he too would be part of the food lifestyle.
In 2008, Greg and his father, Donald, purchased the Reston, Virginia, franchise of Italian restaurant chain Mamma Lucia. After a few years of expanding and modifying the menu, Greg decided to rebrand as Gregorio’s Trattoria in early 2014. Shortly before the reopening, the two men opened a Gregorio’s in Potomac’s Cabin John Mall. The Potomac location gave Greg an opportunity to give back to the community that helped raise him. A graduate of Churchill High School and now raising his own family in the area, Greg knew that supporting local schools and businesses was what he wanted for Gregorio’s.
Now almost six years after opening, Gregorio’s continues to be a local Potomac favorite. The family goal was more than just creating traditional Italian dishes using local, sustainable and all-natural resources.
“So many Italian restaurants are trying to put a new twist on these dishes, but we just want to serve traditional Italian-American food,” Greg says.
Gregorio’s extensive menu options aim to please the masses. From traditional Italian favorites and gluten-free choices to a kid’s menu, there’s sure to be something for everyone. Just as they hoped, it’s the classics that continue to be their best-sellers. You can never go wrong with the spaghetti pomodoro featuring homemade meatballs or the “Specialita dello chef” Eggplant Parmigiana that is so good that “you can’t even taste the eggplant!”
Now established and loved by so many, Greg has created “Greg’s Food 4 Cause,” where he invites
schools, local nonprofit organizations, teams and clubs to hold fundraisers and receive 10 percent of sales generated. This initiative continues to benefit not only the groups who hold fundraisers at the restaurant but also helps Gregorio’s be the place where the neighborhood feels at home.
