Email

It didn't matter who you were to Pete Kontinakis. Once you walked into Farmington Steakhouse, you were his buddy.

Though the signs around the Farmington Steakhouse still bear his smiling face, visitors to the steakhouse will never hear his friendly "Hey, buddy" greeting again, as Pete (Panayoitis) Kontinakis passed away Sunday, Oct. 14, 2012.
