You Get Your $40 Worth at Symi, Long Island, N.Y. Greek Fish Eatery 

NEW YORK – A long way from the days of Greek diners offering cheap good food, it’s not uncommon on Long Island, N.Y. to drop $40 for a meal at a restaurant but the new chic Symi eatery, in Northport, makes people forget the cost.

In a review, Newsday praised the sea food specialities, like fagri (Mediterranean pink snapper) it said was “masterfully grilled, – a little char on the skin, the flesh just past the threshold of opacity – then showered with capers and served with good olive oil and a halved lemon.”

Symi is owned by Irena Angeliades and her partner, Michael Wieczorek. Her father, Mike Angeliades, is a founding partner at Kyma in Roslyn and Manhattan and another opening in West Palm Beach, Florida.

Symi is named for the island where her father was born, almost within sight of the coast of Turkey, and now with a population of about 2600. “It’s my favorite place on earth,” she said, “and the name honors my father.”
