Description

Village Voice's Description

Named after the home island of Ulysses, this restaurant shocked Villagers some years ago when it migrated from Barrow Street to the Upper East Side. The restaurant still managed to retain its Ionian luster, from the pungency of its bread spreads (a choice of three, served with warm pitas, makes a great shared appetizer) to the modest selection of whole fish, charcoal-grilled to your order and deboned tableside by stiff but attentive waiters, to the savory lamb stews. The grotto-like interior is quieter than most, making this a great place for an intimate conversation.

Tips from foursquare

  • Janeen A. on 12/27/12

    Order everything - def get the baklava (warm) and Greek coffee for desert and always sit with Costas!

  • Roger S. on 11/23/12

    The Arni Youvetsi - braised lamb with orzo and tomato sauce - is extraordinary.

  • The Corcoran Group on 04/30/12

    Take a trip to Greece without leaving Manhattan! We’d recommend the Taramosalata, Flambe, Kampas, Garides Sta Karovuna and Revani. It’s not perfect, but we love it.

  • David M. on 05/06/10

    Great pastichio

  • Amin S. on 04/24/10

    Saganaki flambe is excelent and the fish is always fresh
