 John Barous of Concord is the owner and chef of Barous’ Family Restaurant (94 Fort Eddy Road, Concord, 715-5183, find them on Facebook), which is open seven days a week for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Barous has been in the restaurant business since he was about 12 years old. His family also owned the former Cat’n Fiddle Restaurant on Manchester Street in Concord. Barous’ Family Restaurant offers a variety of American and Greek dishes, as well as several rotating specials — among the most popular items, he said, are the gyros, the turkey pot pie and the shrimp macaroni and cheese. Barous’ Family Restaurant also serves prime rib, souvlaki sandwiches, marinated Greek-style chicken kabobs, sandwiches, fried foods, and a full bar of draft and bottled beers and wines.

 
What is your must-have kitchen item?
Definitely a spatula … for flipping eggs and other things on the grill.
 
What would you choose to have for your last meal?
A pizza with ham, salami and onions, with a Mountain Dew.
 
What is your favorite local restaurant?
When my wife and I go out, we like to go to Beefside [in Concord]. I get the brisket omelet most of the time.
 
What celebrity would you like to see eating in your restaurant?
I like to play guitar, so it would be a toss-up between Eddie Van Halen and Steve Vai.
 
What is your favorite thing on your menu?
I would say either the pastichio, the moussaka or the prime rib.
 
What is the biggest food trend in New Hampshire right now?
I think people are definitely after more organic and fresh options.
 
What is your favorite thing to cook at home?
I actually very rarely cook at home, but when I do, I like to make things like pasta that are just simple and quick.
