A few words about our inspiring history: Three years after immigrating from Greece, Tony Antonopoulos opened his first restaurant in Old Montreal, "Le Coin", on August 4, 1973. His brother Costa joined him in 1976, and together they built a business that thrived for over 45 years, known until recently as Groupe Antonopoulos. In 2022, Tony entrusted the continuation of his share of the business to his four children: Dina, Anna, Dimitri, and Maria. To honor their father's first restaurant, Corner Collection was born.
