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.
