Bachelorette Fan Visits Constantine’s Restaurant — Where They Serve Ben F.’s Wine!
Whatever happens with Bachelorette Ashley Hebert, we know at least one Season 7 love story will have a happy ending — the bromance between Constantine Tzortzis and Ben Flajnik. The Team Red Dragon twins have expanded their love to the business world, too, where Constantine serves hot winemaker Ben’s Evolve vino at his own family’s restaurant in Cumming, Georgia.
A Bachelorette fan named Trena Gologan went to Constantine’s restaurant, Georgio’s, and wrote about it for Yahoo!’s Associated Content. Trena, like several other ladies at the eatery, had hoped to spot the hot Jason Segel/Christian Bale lookalike, but “Dino” wasn’t there either night she visited. (He was probably out on a date with Ben F.)
Here are highlights from the full restaurant review (which was unpaid and unsolicited, the author notes):
I wanted firsthand experience from this Greek, Italian and American based restaurant. Located in a small shopping center, I was surprised on the location. It is not far from a tourist lake attraction but hidden from the main highway. Walking into the restaurant I was pleasantly impressed. The staff was instantly friendly and the décor made me feel right at home.
A menu was placed in front of us with so many choices I explained my food allergies to our waitress, Angelia who graciously answered all of my questions with a joyful smile and gave a few of her own favorite suggestions. Angelia explained to us that she had been with the restaurant when they first opened the restaurant and invited us to join them on Monday nights to watch the show. She also told us that although ‘Dino’ wasn't there that evening he usually is working at the restaurant most days/evenings.
As I started adoring the décor, walls adorned with Greek scenery paintings, and family photos, I looked up to meet Constantine's mother, Elleni. She introduced herself and apologized for missing out on getting to meet her son. She definitely was a proud mother [...] she was so down to earth and gave a warm gregarious welcome to the establishment. I asked her about her son's experience with the show. Her sense of humor was captivating as she explained how she had submitted her son's application to the show 3 years earlier without telling him. Although he never heard anything from producers at that time, the staff and family encouraged him to submit an application. Once he received an invitation to the show was when Elleni told her son about how she had applied for him years previous.
BEN F.’s WINE:
Then it was time for [sic] deserts. How could we fit anymore into our stomachs? Yes, we had to indulge. While my counterparts decided on tiramisu and cheesecake, I decided to try a glass of wine. This was however, no ordinary glass of wine. This was from the winery of another bachelorette contestant, Ben F. The white wine was a sweet delicacy to my palate. Light and fruity was the best description that I could give the dessert that I chose. I was refreshed and pleased with the affordable prices offered from their wine menu.
BACHELOR ABOUT TOWN:
In fact, we did go back on a Monday to enjoy the show and in the hopes to catch Constantine working his charm with customers. However, once again welcomed by Angelia she explained how Dino was constantly being invited to various community events since being aired on the show and was helping a local organization raise money by playing in a charity basketball game. There were more than three tables full of single women also in the hopes to meet this infamous bachelor.
