With its upscale Greek ambience, this soaring mosaic tiled and sailcloth clad duplex offers many opportunities for your special event.  Owned by a family of Greek food importers, the food and wines are authentic and delicious.

Their menu offers an array of delicious Greek and Mediterranean dishes featuring fresh seafood and organic produce. The food is indisputably Mediterranean, yet carries a definite Greek accent and contemporary presentation. Pristine seafood imported from Europe and around the world coupled with astoundingly fresh local produce are the cornerstones of Chef Zapantis’ menu.

The restaurant has been awarded 3 stars by Forbes, Zagat and is the recipient of the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence for having the most extensive and exclusive Greek wine list in the city.  (They also have an extensive wine cellar offering an international assortment (including selections from France and the US).

Sand blasted glass and open-faced brick welcome diners for an unparalleled Mediterranean experience. White marble from the island of Thasos, pottery from Argos, and deep oceanic tones provide a unique Ionian ambience and mimic the incomparable blue of the Aegean. The tri-level space of this transformed TriBeCa warehouse complex will impress even your most discriminating guests.

Main Dining Room – Accommodates 130 seated and 180 for cocktails and is dramatically accented with leather lashed support beams and white billowing sails suspended above the bar
