MP Taverna, Chef Michael Psilakis’ modern interpretation of a traditional Greek tavern, is an exciting staple in the Westchester dining scene, located steps from the Metro North Railroad and a stone’s throw from the Hudson River. Open for lunch and dinner, MP Taverna’s accessible, Greek-inspired menu brings Psilakis’ Greek fare into the American culinary lexicon and is another step towards the chef’s goal of putting Greek cuisine on the culinary main stage.

The Greekish, 8 North Broadway in Nyack, is the new meze and ouzo bar by award-winning Chef Constantine Kalandranis. Meze – the Greek version of tapas – is a collection of savory small dishes; they can be warm or cold and include vegetables, cheeses, dips, seafood, pita bread, and more. The menu is a celebration of just that, allowing guests to get a little taste of everything… At an affordable cost. The menu is a celebration of the seasons and inspired by locally-sourced ingredients wherever possible. Chef Constantine doesn’t take any shortcuts— the pita program, dips, and dressings are all made daily in-house. To complete the meze concept, the bar program at The Greekish showcases the versatility of ouzo. The wine collection showcases the next generation in Greek winemaking with hand-picked selections to accompany the flavorful dishes.
