Lunch after lectures at Greater New York Dental Meeting Discovered this place on my last visit to NYC September this year. Like a Greek island tavern in the middle of NYC Best lamb cutlets with a nice 14-18 Greek Rose Shame they still have the Amero-pop but you can forgive them. A delight to eat in and certainly worth the... More

When we saw FIX (a local Athenian beer) in the beer fridge, I knew this was going to be good. The restaurant looks like a street in the islands, whitewash walls, blue doors, and even the signage were very Greek. You could almost be in Greece. We ordered some taramasalata (cod roe dip) and tirokafteri (spicy cheese dip) to start... More

We stumbled across this place while walking in East village. The food was great but wished we knew the score and the pita we orderd was small (did not realise it was more casual dining) so order two because prices are cheap. The food was tasty and service was excellent. Woukd recommended for sure.

Located at the Lower East Side of Manhattan, Souvlaki Gr is a Greek restaurant that brings a bit of the Mykonos spirit to Gotham. The place is small, but very inviting, with an unmistakable white and blue facade - the colors of Greece. The name is an homage to a small typical greek sandwich. It's a famous street food. There...

I've been going to Souvlaki GR for three plus years, although the restaurant is always a little too crowded and space is very tight, the food is always good especially the lamb and the fresh cut fries which are super excelent.

Since we only had a brief overnight visit in NYC, we decided to try Souvlaki GR. When we arrived, we were immediately seated in the small casual restaurant at a small table half way inside the restaurant (we had reservations). We enjoyed the ambiance since it tried to emulate the Mikonos area of Greece. Along with a bottle of Greek... More

Great location - zero pretentious - fantastic Greek food - brilliant service - fun crowd - great place to just pop into and be sure of a small space in a very busy (in a good way) restaurant

Very good and cheap! We all had the souvlaki, which had french fries inside instead of as a side. Was confused but it ended up being very good. The greek salad was also very good and fresh. Feta cheese was amazing. Quick, friendly service. For 3 souvlaki and a salad it came to 40$ with tip. Cheapest supper I've ever... More

Staying in Lower East Side

Neighbourhood Profile
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 shops of Orchard Street, you’ll find hip clubs, fashionable bistros, and luxury hotels beckoning at all hours of the evening. If you love nightlife and live music, it’s hard to beat the scene here.
