Friendly, informal restaurant with a wide menu of Greek dishes. Prices are very reasonable and the service is friendly.

It's hard to get really great Greek food in Manhattan for a reasonable price. This is a great option especially at lunch when they have $10 specials. Friendly staff here and a great, casual atmosphere. I get the gyro platter every time. YUM.

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
