Ayios Greek Rotisserie
Can’t afford a vacation in Santorini? Get a taste of the Greek lifestyle at this taverna in the East Village. Whet your appetite with a crispy slice of spinach spanakopita ($10), a plate of chargrilled octopus ($19) or shrimp saganaki ($18). For your main course, go casual with a chicken or pork yeeros platter served with fries, tomatoes, onions, pita and the house sauce ($14), or gorge on the rich moussaka, a dish of eggplant, potato and ground beef topped with a thick layer of bechamel sauce ($16). A whole grilled sea bass ($25) or salmon fillet ($18) might do the trick if you’re craving seafood. Finish your meal with a traditional Greek walnut cake ($8) or head straight for the bar. You’re going to want to taste the hard-to-find spirits like ouzo ($7) and the Greek brandy called metaxa ($14). The wine lists features mostly Mediterranean vintages, while the signature cocktail list includes themed beverages like a Mykonos Mule ($14).
Venue says: “When you mention Time Out you can have a Yeeros Pita with your choice of either a glass of house wine or draft beer for $9.”
