The Greek
458 Greenwich St.
(bet. Watts and Desbrosses)
More casual than fancy

Greek-American restaurateur Tom Galis, whose background is in fast casual, always knew he wanted a full-service restaurant, and in particular, given his heritage, a Greek one. The goal was to create a restaurant that feels like a Greek taverna through and through, from attitude to design elements to food. The Greek is more inspired by the mainland (versus the islands), so the offerings lean toward meat and vegetables, although there are a few seafood options. The wine list is exclusively Greek, and what’s more, you can get the country’s most popular drink: a Nescafé frappe, or instant Nescafé blended over ice.

  1. Delicious find! Went there last night, quiet calm vibe. Interesting cocktails, really great mezze offerings, the spinach and cheese pies (actually rolls) were delicious and the pastry tasted home made. The octopus was cooked to tender perfection, as were the chicken skewers that followed. The side vegetables, often a neglected dish, were delicious too.

    They did 2 things I really liked – their bottled water was $3 a bottle, and their desserts were small (but not tiny) bites of sweetness, that were also $3 each.

    So reasonably priced by Tribeca standards. We’ll definitely be back.
