Argo is a Greek Restaurant owned and operated by a Greek family. It specializes in authentic Greek cuisine, pizza and pasta.
In Greek mythology Argo (meaning swift) was the ship on which Jason and the Argonauts sailed from Iolcos to retrieve the Golden Fleece. She was named after her builder Argus.
According to the myth Argo was said to have been constructed with the help of goddess Athena .She contained in her pow a magical piece of timber from the sacred forest of Dodona, which could speak and render prophecies. After the successful journey Argo was consecrated to Poseidon in the isthmus of Corinth. She was then translated into the sky and turned into the constellation of Argo Navis.
Generally she was imagined like a Greek warship, a galley, and hypothesized that she was the first ship of this type that had gone out on a high sea voyage.
