This is a solid choice near Grand Central Station for upscale seafood. If you go with a group, try ordering a selection of appetizers and some wine. It's a great way to sample a variety of their dishes.

Despite some decent reviews and a full house at lunch Thursday we were very underwhelmed. The dips were fairly good but a requested grilled calimari with Greek salad was ...well...blech! Bland salad and soggy cold calimari slices. A saganaki tasted like it was made the week before....hard and cool. Even a hard to mess up Greek coffee was poor. Most... More

Description
If you feel the urge to slip off your shoes, we understand; "ammos" is Greek for "sand.” This is in airy, light-filled restaurant and lounge, where sandstone pillars conjure images of a sun-drenched Greek island.For a casual lunch, a romantic dinner, or to celebrate those special moments in your life, you found the right place. Ammos is conveniently located in the Theater District just steps away from Grand Central Station.Ammos offers a three course pre-theater menu for only $33 and the best prix-fixe lunch in town including selection of the freshest fish, brought in daily from the Mediterranean water.We import many of the fine ingredients directly from Greece, such as sea salt, dried oregano from Taygetos, capers and caper berries and many of the staples used in the dishes-like first and cold pressed extra virgin olive oil, honey and the feta cheese produced on a family farm in Greece.Choose from a wide selection of whole fresh fish brought in daily from waters around the globe. Come and taste the Fagri (Mediterranean Snapper) and the Barbounia (Red Mullets).Join us for drinks during our lounge hours - the perfect place to unwind after work before heading home on the train, and a great setting for a meet-up anytime.Ammos Estiatorio will dazzle and delight guests with two stunning venues for dining and entertaining. We can accommodate up to 200 guests for a cocktail party and 150 guests for dining, as well as smaller groups of up to 25 in our private Mezzanine area.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
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 heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the 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.
