We visited here as a family and really enjoyed our experience. With little knowledge of Greek food, the staff were great guiding us around the menu and aided in choosing a few starters and our mains. The service was great, starters came up promptly and...More

We stopped in for pre-theater dinner. The outdoor patio was nestled behind the restaurant in an alley shared by many buildings. It was quite interesting and unique. The food was so-so. My lamb kebabs were dry and lacked flavor. The rice was also dry and...More

I had stopped by for lunch since their special board advertised grilled octopus. There were only a few patrons in the restaurant and I was seated quickly. I asked about the octopus and if it came with anything else [over rice, with salad, etc] and...More

Only three nights in our New York stay and ate there twice. That says it all. First night: Melintzanosalata and calamarakia tiganita to start, a large horiatiki salata, and biftekia, washed down with a carafe of Retsina, then a coffee and baklava to finish. Second...More

Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful
brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most
popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s
jewels when it comes to neighbourhood life. The
contemporary art scene is an integral part of the
neighbourhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost
every night of the week and countless exhibits to
explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York
