Hot Dream: Spyropoulos Gets Woodbury Diner Oniro Cooking Greek

November 28, 2020

‘Oniro’ – dream in Greek – has a new look menu under new chef Peter Spyropoulos, who brought a combination of his Greek cooking skills and Culinary Institute of America background to the Woodbury, NY eatery. 

The Long Island restaurant, these being the times of COVID-19, said it also checks customers’ temperatures and contact information for track-and-trace just in case to ensure their safety, said The Suffolk Daily Voice. 

"There is a very cozy atmosphere, nice service with all the necessary precautions per Covid-19," wrote reviewer Inna F. on Yelp. "We've been to Greek restaurants many times and this one is a really good choice if you look for Greek cuisine.” 

She added: "We had eggplant chips – how do they cook them? So crispy! Also fried calamari – the best!” 

There's the classics, from the classic Greek horiatiki salad that features Kalamata olives and barred-aged feta, spanakopita, and Keftedakia, tender meatballs of lamb and beef. 

There's also two Greek pastas, one with shrimp and with linguine cooked in fresh tomatoes, marinara sauce, white wine, shallots, scallions, fresh basil, seafood stock, oregano, butter and olive oil; and ‘astakomakaronada’, lobster.
