Most Authentic Greek food, not just Gyros, Grilled Octopus was incredible, recommended by the server. I think he might be vegan, lol. Seriously worth going

We enjoyed this small authentic place. Decorated like an outdoor cafe in greece (even though its indoor and warm)!

We love Greek food and this place serves some of the best. You might be sitting very close to those you do not know but worth the close quarters for great food.

This place has a great atmosphere with a lovely Greek vibe felt like I was in Santorini all over again. Good was delicious. My only complaint was cramped for space and we were put under a little pressure to leave once we ate.

The best Greek and the waitresses are super cool. The speciality plate is grilled mixed meat and try the mythos beer. You feel like you are in Mykonos. The price is good and it's romantic

Lower East Side
Straddling the bridge between New York’s thriving
immigrant past and its modern transformation into a
beacon of global art and culture, the Lower East Side
is one of the most dynamic neighbourhoods in the city.
The blocks of tenements that represented the promise

now command top dollar for new residents. Right next
to old-world delis, 24-hour bodegas, and the garment
