At and Wing House : Mulberry Street in Milton, the public keeps coming back for more of those hot wings. Manny Diakolios and his fami- ly opened the restaurant slightly more than a year ago, and they couldn't be happier about the business. "We've been extremely suc- cessful," said Diakolios, who bought the building in Clipper Square from the former Gina's Pizza owners: "My family and I wanted to do something on our own ." And they did. After about six months of renovations and improvements, the Miltonian was ready to open. The Diakolios' added televi- sions, a large dining room and arcade games. The restaurant now seats 130 people and features a wide array of menu selections, including salads, pizza, steaks, seafood, pasta and the favorite for many - the wings. With flavors like Kamikaze and Suicide, the restaurant sells about 25 cases of the wings every week. "The wings are definitely the most popular," said Diakolios. "We go through 25 40-pound cases every week, and it only increases during sporting events." The restaurant also runs differ- ent specials every week. Some weekends Diakolios puts baby- back fibs on the menu, and he also has saut6 specials. He recently started a Curves-inspired menu, with healthy options like wraps and combinations that are healthi- er than the average Italian fare. Everything is made fight in front of the customer. In the old restaurant, the kitchen Was shut off from the people, said Diakolios, but he said when they did the renovations he wanted to let the people see their food pre- pared, fight up to the moment it is served. "We aren't ashamed to show what we do, so we wanted to open the kitchen up," said Diakolios. The Diakolios family, original- ly from Greece, moved to Sussex County from New York, one year ago. "We always wanted to be close to the water and have our own business," said Diakolios, who is a culinary institute gradu- ate. "This seemed like the fight place for us." The Miltonian now employs 15 to 20 people, many of whom have become like family members. The Diakolios family, including Manny's mom and dad, Eve and Elias, work beside Manny, his brother, Andy, and their cousin, Gus. This five-member team works every day to give. people from Milton and elsewhere a great din- ing experience.

"Milton was ready for some- thing like this, because everyone can come here and bring their kids," said Diakolios. "The busi- ness is constantly growing. People are trying different things. It's not just about chicken and dumplings anymore."
