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

Amazing little restaurant, tiny but bustling. Can fool you into thinking you're sitting outside in Greece not in the middle of NYC. Friendly, quick service. I had the pita souvlaki which was very delicious but it was just a bit too small! Baklava for dessert...More

Excellent Greek meals here. I've eaten dinner here twice and both times loved it. Very fresh and flavorful meals. The chicken and potatoes were amazing. Friendly staff. Casual but nicer than basic casual.

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
and blight of the Lower East Side immigrant experience
now command top dollar for new residents. Right next
to old-world delis, 24-hour bodegas, and the garment
