Restaurant owner. Nick came to Rochester New York in 1937 and started selling hot dogs from a push cart. In time he opened a restaurant. When the interstate highway came through Rochester he took over the old Railroad station and built a Rochester landmark "Nick Tahou's Hots". Students at the University of Rochester and RIT can be found eating the specialty of the house, "The Garbage Plate" A combination of fried potatoes, macaroni salad, two cheeseburgers, some raw onion,mustard and a chili like hot sauce. This combination has been featured on the Food Network. When Nick retired and turned the business over to his son he said "You know for 60 years, I worked behind the counter, customers always bothering me. No mustard. Extra sauce. Gimme this, gimme that. Always, customers bothering me. So, finally I say that's it. I'm done! So I retired. You know what I do now? Now, I come in and bother the customers!"
