NEW YORK – Avra Estiatorio Rockefeller Center held its grand opening party on June 9 in a festive atmosphere. The restaurant was crowded with guests offering their best wishes for the success of The Avra Group’s latest location in Manhattan, 1271 Avenue of the Americas, at 50th Street, right across from the famed Radio City Music Hall.
The elegantly designed space includes three floors and a spacious outdoor seating area where guests enjoyed cocktails and delicious appetizers such as Greek-style meatballs, salmon skewers, spanakopita and tyropita triangles. Fresh seafood items from the impressive raw bar on the first floor and on the lower level were also available for guests to sample.
Besides wonderful food and refreshing cocktails, the restaurant also has great spaces for private events that will undoubtedly attract many to this particular location.
Among those present were past Supreme President of AHEPA Nicholas Karacostas, Gregory Pappas of The Pappas Post, Fr. Panagiotis Papazafiropoulos and his wife Christina, and NBC4 New York’s David Ushery and Lauren Scala.
