This Greek restaurant is truly a neighborhood gem, at 1st avenue and 51st street.
The decor is impeccable, with all walls and furniture in white and light blue, like in Mykonos. The restaurant is in the corner, with big windows to both street, which make the place bright and much bigger. There is a bar at the entrance, which is usually very happening. The service is superb, with very friendly staff. And the food is simply amazing.
Although the menu is all mouth watering, my dish choices always include grilled octopus, Greek salad, typical dips and Saganaki (cheese) to begin with, and Royal Dorado with lemon potatoes or Lamb Chops as main course. The dessert is always complimentary, including Greeks pastries. Overall, their prices are very reasonable.
If I would have to mention a negative, is the prices of the wine list, which begin at $39. These prices do not really coordinate well with the menu prices.
Please make reservations before going (conveniently via OpenTable), as the restaurant gets packed very easily.
We go there very often, and every time, we leave very satisfied.
