It's been an interesting road for the veteran restaurateur Louis Pappas, from his family's flagship business in Tarpon Springs years ago, to overseeing a fleet of eponymous fast-casual Mediterranean-Greek spots. He sold the big restaurant in Tarpon in 2002 and at one point oversaw seven Louis Pappas Market Cafes. That might have been that, had not Roy Speer intervened. The HSN pioneer built a big red barn in Odessa with the aim of doing barbecue. Pappas has taken over, adding his famous Greek salad (Pappas is said to be the originator of the potato-salad-in-the-middle phenomenon) to a menu of smoked brisket, slabs of prime ribs and pulled pork.
