As its name in Greek suggests, this stunner is making “waves” in town by way of Roslyn, New York. The bi-level space transports diners to the Ionian Sea but it’s not just beauty that bewitches here. All Hellenic meals begin with a panoply of spreads, so using a warm pita, scoop up the pikilia trio with feta, hummus and taramasalata. Calamari stuffed with four cheeses and served over a Nafpaktos tomato sauce is a winner. Not far behind, find that phyllo-wrapped spanakopita delight with spinach and cheese. The menu also lists a series of fresh-caught fish ready for “your pleasure.” Carnivores though will also get their fill by way of the short rib youvetsi.
Ekmek kataifi featuring shredded phyllo and semolina custard is a fine way to end this Greek feast.- MICHELIN guide inspectors
