Peter Poulakakos and his family’s catalytic efforts to reinvigorate downtown over the last 4 decades have made Lower Manhattan a place where people can find high quality, unique meeting places and culinary options day or night. His downtown establishments — including Harry’s Café & Steak, Ulysses Folk House, Financier Patisserie, and Adrienne’s Pizza Bar all within the Stone Street Historic District, along with new comers such as Pier A Harbor House and The Dead Rabbit Grocery and Grog —represent an admirable dedication to fostering community in the neighborhoods south of Houston Street.
