Family owned and operated, Uncle Nick's (on Ninth Ave and 50th Street in the heart of NYC's Hells Kitchen), is a great relaxed spot to have some of the most delicioso Italian fare outside of Italy. Nothing fancy, just friendly, clean, inviting, spacious----with an extensive menu of mouth-watering dishes and pizzas from Heaven! A friendly staff makes you feel right... More

Met friends on a Sunday evening for food and fellowship and were very pleased. Classic mezedes with pita bread- very good tzatziki, taramasalata and eggplant dip- didn't have the showy flaming cheese, but saw others who enjoyed it. Main courses included regular and vegetarian moussaka and both were excellent. Their grilled octopus is as good as you will get anywhere... More

Never had such a tender octopus as this place omgoodness it was so amazing! Loved all the dishes. Reasonable prices too didn't hurt. 20$ for a litre of wine. Unbelievable. But the octopus was our favourite. We ordered one and ended up getting another 3 for the table! Sooooo good. Very impressed with the Mexican waiter who could speak greek... More

We were staying at the Marriott so just googled Greek food and this one came up. What a treat. Started with the 4 sampler spread appetizer. It was great. Not the usual items we get in Idaho. I recommend it. The service was great. A real find.

Was in NYC on business and hotel recommended this place which was just around the corner. So glad they did - very good little neighborhood authentic Greek restaurant. I'd highly recommend if you are staying in the area. Service was a little slow... Took us probably 10 minutes to get drunk order made after sitting, but the staff was friendly.

I had a superb brook trout, delivered whole (including the tail and head). Upon request, the chef will fillet it for you. My cup on tasty Greek soup was as large as most bowels of soup in most restaurants. Most of the staff have been there for many years, including the male waiters. While I dine in Manhattan's Hell's Kitchen... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
