Foursquare Tips

  • It might be the birth of the Greek tapas bar - indulge yourself withsome of the pita sandwiches or something from the Pitarakia portion ofthe menu.
  • The Paidakia Galaktos Stin Schara is a mouthful in more ways then one - these baby lamb chops served with lemon potatoes and broccoli rabe are number 10 on Robert Sietsemas top lamb dishes inNYC.
  • The mussels are perhaps the most perfect mussels I've ever tasted. The lamb chops are also very amazing. If you're doing saganaki, the oven baked one was delicious!
  • Finally, an authentic Greek coffee in the village!
  • Get the pulled Greek lamb sandwiches!
  • Skip entrees and go for meatballs, shrimp, stuffed grape leaves, and Greek salad as shared tapas. Service is spotty but only a month new. Ask for a couch.
  • Try the Fried Cheese
  • This small-plates Greek restaurant just opened in the East Village. The dinner menu includes warm smoked potato-seafood salad and a selection of small savory pies
  • Great food and very good service. Try a variety of different starters rather than going for main courses. Horta, mussels, chickpeas are some of the best dishes!
  • nice atmosphere, though unusually elegant for the neighborhood.
  • Chocolate moose desert is sooo good!
  • Get the baked cheese and the phyllo flutes!
  • Great place... Service and food was awesome...
  • Yum! Don't miss the eggplant dolmas w lamb. Mussels and shrimp dishes are delish too.
  • Lamb sandwiches. You will not be disappointed.
  • This places is amazing! The mussels are RIDICULOUS! Also all of the wines from the GA'IA winery are incredible. My personal faves are the Thalassitis (white, Asyrtiko grape) and 14-18 hour (rose).
  • Sardines with tomato confit is a must. Eat the head!
  • Food was good. Service was absolutely awful!!! Wait staff was disorganized and had no idea how to sequence their customers. Take out would be the best/only option for this place.
