NO its a big thing in MA.

My theory (Growing up in NY vs going to college in Boston).

In NY the majority of diners are Greek owned. Greek immigrants who wanted to open a restaurant defaulted to diners while Italian immigrants went the Pizza route.

In Boston that diner culture just doesn't exist, so all the Greek immigrants defaulted to opening pizza places.

Not sure in CT as much. The pizza places we tend to frequent in stamford aren't greek owned but there are plenty

There’s a lot of greek owned diners in CT as well.

Yup. The Athenian group for one, obviously. Cromwell Diner was as well at one point.

I was thinking about the Athenians specifically but also Colony Diner. I think most diners, at least in CT are Greek owned tbh. Maybe even outside of CT but I can’t really speak on that, I don’t usually eat at diners if I travel out of state.
