Greek Eateries Participating in NYC Restaurant Week To-Go

NEW YORK – With many restaurants trying hard to navigate the current situation due to the pandemic, New York City Restaurant Week takes place January 25-31 as an all-takeout and delivery event this year. Greek restaurants are, of course, among those participating in NYC Restaurant Week To-Go, including Ammos Estiatorio – Grand Central, Eléa, Ousia, Periyali, Souvlaki GR-Midtown East, Souvlaki GR-Lower East Side, Souvlaki GR-Midtown West, and Athena Mediterranean Cuisine in Park Slope, Brooklyn.

At Ammos Estiatorio-Grand Central, now through January 31, enjoy a special offer on takeout and delivery during lunch or dinner. For just $20.21, you'll get your choice of a main course: kotopouli pita, bifteki arni, lahanika skaras, mousakas, or makaronia tis Giagas; a side: roasted lemon potatoes, fresh cut oregano fries, vegetarian risotto or gigandes; a salad: horiatiki or salata kipou; and a side of chicken breast, grilled calamari or salmon.

Eléa, the modern split-level Greek restaurant, has a sunny and welcoming atmosphere, with a big bar and plentiful tables. Eléa shares design and menu similarities with Kyma, its downtown sibling. Eggplant-zucchini chips with tzatziki dip and fried piquant kefalograviera cheese are an absolute must. From the raw bar, get yellow fin tuna tartare. Grilled lamb chops and creamy seafood orzotto laced with Metaxa brandy shine among the delicious main courses.

The architecturally stunning Via 57 West residential building on the Hudson waterfront houses a dazzling Mediterranean oasis, Ousia. Given that the Greek Livanos family (Molyvos, Oceana) is behind the place, it’s no surprise that there’s plenty of seafood on the menu alongside Greek salad, cheeses, spreads and grilled chicken or filet mignon souvlaki.

Periyali, a Flatiron District favorite, was one of the first Greek bistros in Manhattan to offer refined, gourmet interpretations of Greek classics such as spanakopita, moussaka, and tomato-stewed rabbit. The upscale, whitewashed décor speaks to the number of fresh seafood dishes on the menu, and the noted wine list is considered a pioneer in drawing attention to the award-winning wines of Greece.

Periyali’s Offer: Now through January 31, enjoy a special offer on takeout and delivery during lunch or dinner. For just $20.21, you'll get a choice of souvlaki kotopoulo with vegetable couscous; psitos solomos with broccolini; or mousakas with stewed beans.

Souvlaki GR-Midtown East and Souvlaki GR-Lower East Side’s Offer: Now through January 31, enjoy a special offer on takeout and delivery during lunch or dinner. For just $20.21, you'll get moussaka or pastitsio with a side of Greek fries or horiatiki salad.
