Restaurants, Greek Midtown West

Within Gotham’s growing roster of sophisticated Greek eateries, 11-year-old Molyvos remains one of the best. Chef Jim Botsacos’s rustic entrées include classic moussaka, hearty rabbit stew and exquisitely soft lamb yuvetsi baked in a clay pot. Tableside flourishes like halloumi cheese doused in ouzo and set aflame is a classic display of Grecian flair. Those wistful for more homestyle eats should turn their attention to the comfort-food dessert: loukoumades, or fritters in a pool of cinnamon-thyme honey.
