Topo’s 403 is located inside of the Topolgus Building, named by by Dr. James N. Topolgus, Sr. (locally known as “Topo Sr.”) after he purchased the building in 1947 for his medical offices, where he worked with his son who was a general surgeon. The building remained for this purpose until 1995 when “Topo Jr.” moved his office and became Topo’s 403 in 2012, which was an upscale Greek and Mediterranean restaurant. In 2018, Topo’s 403 was rebranded as a private events venue.
