Greek, Spanish, Turkish snacks and sharing plates—and a burger, of course. There are lighter vegan options like zucchini crudo spiked with piquillo pepper, as well as heartier (and meatier) stuff: the cataplana, a stew for two, is chock full of shrimp, clams, lobster, mussels, monkfish and comes with hunks of sourdough.
Specialty cocktails, like Her Royal Highness (the crown jewel of them all), a $30 citrusy vodka-and-rum concoction served in a copper pineapple; and a list of international wines that includes a $42 bottle of Greek sauvignon blanc, a $63 bottle of Kiwi pinot noir and, for the high rollers, a $650 bottle of Dom Pérignon.
Solid Design and Build (the team behind La Carnita and Valdez) transformed this two-storey Victorian row house in Yorkville. Both the main and second-floor dining rooms have their own bar, and out back there’s a 48-seat enclosed patio with a retractable roof—one of the city’s few year-round patios.
