A New Seaport to Visit: Limani


Limani’s grilled octopus appetizer is a must-try.

Rockefeller Center is home to numerous iconic New York institutions, including the Rainbow Room and Radio City Music Hall, but there is a new hotspot that should be on everyone’s radar. After conquering Long Island, Limani has ventured into Manhattan, serving Greek seafood dishes that made it a mainstay in Roslyn, New York.

As people walk through the doors of 45 Rockefeller Plaza, they will feel transported to an oasis in the Greek Isles by the bright white interior, nets hanging from ceiling, and the infinity pool that is the perfect centerpiece for a romantic and relaxing dinner. People don’t just come here for the ambiance, though — they also come for the delectable seafood that is equal in quality to that of Le Bernardin and other highly acclaimed restaurants.

Limani, which means “seaport” in Greek, provides an array of fresh fish to choose from, sourced from local waters as well as the Mediterranean. Patrons might not know about all the types of fish that are served, but the waiters educate guests and guide them to choose the right meal. Some of the must-try appetizers are the grilled octopus and the scallops, which are grilled on a skewer with bell peppers and Vidalia onions. Don’t forget to try the traditional Greek salad, with large tomatoes, feta cheese, onions, and a little bit of lettuce.

People may have difficulty choosing their main entrée, but when it doubt, order the surf and turf. Perfect for lobster- and steak-lovers, the mix is delightful. If there is any room left for dessert, chocolate aficionados have to indulge with the Chocolatina: a chocolate soufflé served with pistachio ice cream.

From Long Island to Manhattan, Limani is creating waves in the culinary world that will have people ready to set sail to Rockefeller Center. Whether food lovers are looking for a tradition fish dish or a new signature seafood special, Limani is the place to go.
