Marathi, New Greek Bistro, Opened in Tribeca November 2 (Photos)

NEW YORK – Cookbook author and Executive Chef Nicholas Poulmentis (Akrotiri, Kellari Taverna) has teamed with restaurateur Andreas Koutsoudakis to open Marathi, a new Greek bistro featuring homestyle Crete cooking in Tribeca. The restaurant officially opened on November 2, and serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner every day, with brunch served on weekends.

Marathi embodies the refinement of an idyllic Greek oasis while honoring both men’s connection to their homeland, transforming a breezy corner of Tribeca into an equally captivating destination. For breakfast, Chef Poulmentis entertains with a Greek Yogurt Parfait; Junior’s Omelet with feta, and Greek sausage; and a Greek Egg Sandwich of scrambled eggs, loukaniko, and feta cheese. Weekend brunch includes the Chef’s Special Eggs Benedict which combines poached eggs with loukaniko, potato feta hash, and a smooth avocado hollandaise, among the items on the menu as well as the Bagel and Lox Platter, served with Greek bread, and fried eggs.

The mezzanine level at Marathi is the ideal setting for lunch with friends or business associates. The food also matches the mood with a selection of salads and sandwiches featuring Greek flavors, and entrees ranging from simply grilled branzino and dorade, to pastas and souvlakia. As the sun sets, the light softens, the music turns up, and the true meaning of Greek hospitality shines through at Marathi. From the starters through the desserts, Chef Poulmentis has created a dynamic menu including his Black Truffle Tarama, Cretan Dakos, and Chicken Lemon Ramen.

Cocktail creator Tom Garvin has put together a selection of wines, with a focus on Greek labels, and cocktails that are destination worthy; the white marble bar is the perfect backdrop for his colorful and layered libations.

The restaurant features both indoor and outdoor dining and will be open daily at 7 AM.

Marathi is located at 200 Church Street in the Tribeca neighborhood of Manhattan.
