Baby Blues Brings Back New York’s Vintage Greek Luncheonettes

November 12, 2022

BROOKLYN – You can bring back the 1950’s at a new modern Greek diner, Baby Blues Luncheonette, in Brooklyn’s hip Williamsburg neighborhood that features twists on Greek fare as well as blues and jazz.

With colorful vintage looks right down to the vinyl chairs that will take you back in time it’s the effort of first-time restaurant owners Costa Damaskos and Jake Marsiglia, who have experience in the New York food industry, said Eater.

The menu features H.L.T. (grilled Cypriot halloumi cheese, lettuce, and heirloom tomatoes), Greek salad, watermelon-feta salads, the Zorba plate of halloumi, tzatziki, Greek potatoes, Greek yogurt bowls, and baklava banana bread.

“We really wanted to use this as a chance to connect with New York state in terms of produce,” said Damaskos, who added he wanted to have a nostalgic music vibe too, including posters of jazz and blues artists.

“So many old-school spots have been disappearing from the landscape, and we wanted to pay homage to that,” says Damaskos, who is Greek and Australian and was fascinated about Greek diners when he moved to New York, a passion also shared by his girlfriend Leigh Altshuler.
