Sam Zambelis, the owner of the Bon Ton died this week. He was only 50 years old. The Bon Ton has been a downtown fixture since the 1920's. Sam's late father Mike, who immigrated from Greece, bought the Bon Ton in 1950 which was then at 158 Monroe. In 1961, they moved just steps away to 150 Monroe where it's still located. This is a true diner with a black and white checker board floor, red vinyl booths and lots of pictures of celebrities on the walls. Sam will be missed by many downtowners.
