Mitzio’s Italian Restaurant in the heart of downtown Dublin will be getting a new name.
It will be called Mitzios, the Irish Times reports.
The Irish newspaper says it is the first restaurant in the country to be called by the name it has been known for decades.
The restaurant has been named in honour of the late Mitziah Mitzioni, a legendary Irish-American who opened it in 1893.
Mitzions restaurant was named after Mitzitziah when he started his restaurant, Mitzizios Restaurant, on the corner of North Boulevard and East Avenue in Dublin’s historic East End.
Mentioning Mitzies name, the city’s mayor has asked the Irish community to vote on whether to name the restaurant after him.
