The Greek Kitchen is located on 10th Avenue at 58th Street, slightly south of Lincoln Center Plaza and slightly west of Jazz at Lincoln Center. Fordham University, the New York Library of Performing Arts, Carnegie Hall, and Juilliard are also close by. George, the Manager, with personality and attentiveness, will make your lunch or dinner visit one that inspires you to return very soon. The menu is so engaging and eclectic, that it's often hard to choose. Tonight I ordered Shrimp Saganaki in fresh tomato sauce, onions, and pepper, with melted feta. A side dish was pan-seared sesame crusted feta with fresh tomatoes and Kalamata olives, poached figs, and fresh mint, garnished with red wine. George chose a Greek white wine to accompany my dinner.

The Greek Kitchen is open from 11:30 AM to 10:30 PM, every day, and its menu features the finest of Greek specialties. For cold appetizers, you might try Tzatziki (yogurt with cucumber, garlic, dill), and for hot appetizers you might try Garides Skaras (charcoal grilled shrimp with lemon and oil). Middle Eastern Salads, with rice-stuffed grapevine leaves, eggplant spread, tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, olives, and feta, can be topped with grilled chicken, salmon, or shrimp. Soup choices include the renowned Avgolemono (chicken broth, egg, lemon, orzo), and Souvlaki Sandwiches can be filled with sausage, shrimp, vegetables, or chicken. Specialty Platters, with salad, include Brizoles Hoirines (pork chops). Moussaka (eggplant, potato, chopped meat, spices) and Gemista (stuffed tomato or pepper) will transport your appetite to Athens. Pastas, whole fish, side dishes, and burgers are featured as well. A dessert might be Cream Caramel or Baklava, with Greek Coffee or Espresso.

Visit The Greek Kitchen very soon to explore its fine Greek cuisine for yourself. Tell them you saw them on RobertaOnTheArts.com!
