Useful information


The city has upped its Greek game in recent years, but Molyvos has more than earned its OG status—having served fresh Mediterranean cuisine to a loyal crowd for innumerable years. The secret to its longevity lies in the kitchen’s simple and enjoyable food, smart service and casually elegant setting (tables covered with white cloth and a spare, rustic aesthetic).

Executive Chef Carlos Carreto oversees this menu. Among a host of delicious sounding (and tasting) items is the lamb pie, highlighting flaky, fried phyllo packed with tender shredded shank and a mild cheese sauce. Plush pillows of bougatsa filled with warm semolina custard will have you begging for more. The wine list is of particular note, starring some of the city's finest all-Greek vintages.
