The new 16,500 square-foot restaurant at Rockefeller Center in the historic Time-Life Building sits across the street from Radio City Music Hall and celebrates a Mediterranean courtyard aesthetic. The three-floor indoor-outdoor restaurant features an alfresco dining area on the historic plaza on 6th Avenue, main dining room, central bar, cellar-level dining room, mezzanine overlooking the main dining room, an open kitchen and a market-style seafood display.

Reminiscent of the Greek islands, the restaurant has a chic white aesthetic with elements of water and greenery throughout.

With a tailored menu curated by Executive Chef Arman Arsan and Co-Executive Chef Jose Diaz, diners will experience iconic Avra-style dishes with a something-for-everyone-appeal with Greek signatures such as: freshly caught seafood (flown in daily), local and sustainable catches, small plates, caviar, meat, sashimi & ceviche, and more. New menu items for this location will be: American Wagyu Cote De Boeuf, a 30 day aged Snake River Farms bone in 32 oz. filet with house-made onion rings and truffle fries; Whole Fish Sashimi, Rockefeller Ceviche, Fennel Soup and more.

Fun fact: This space marks 6th Avenue’s most expansive dining venue with alfresco seats.

Mission…to Alonnisos, a TNH Documentary

O oceanic you sing and sail White on your body and yellow on your chimeneas For you're tired of the filthy waters of the harbors You who loved the distant Sporades You who lifted the tallest flags You who sail clear through the most dangerous caves Hail to you who let yourself be charmed by the sirens Hail to you for never having been afraid of the Symplegades (Andreas Empeirikos)   What traveler has not been fascinated by the Greek islands, drawn by the Sirens’ song of a traveler’s dreams? TNH and our video show ‘Mission’ marked the change of the season by transporting viewers into the heart of summer.
