This midtown Greek spot is admittedly pricey, but you’d be hard-pressed to find whole fish as fresh as the ice display here. Start with a bottle of Greek wine (the list is impressive with plenty of interesting, hard-to-find bottles) as well as an order of grilled octopus (a flawless rendition!) and tomato salad and head to the ice display to shop for your dinner. (If you see langoustines, grab them.) If not, there’s plenty of other excellent and hard-to-find options the likes of White Salmon, Plump Red Shrimp, Sardines, Louvraki, Razor Clams and more. For dessert, the only way to go is their Housemade, tangy and thick, Greek Yogurt drizzled with Milos’ own thyme-inflected honey.
Don’t Miss Dish: Charcoal-broiled octopus, tomato salad, mezze, & grilled whole fish from the ice display.
End With: Greek yogurt drizzled with thyme honey
Drink This: Great Greek wine selection
Occasion: Business lunch, pre-theater, dining destination, meet the parents.
Bonus: Take advantage of the pre and post-theater menus, which are much more affordable than lunch or dinner.
