Pylos is a very quaint but spectacular Greek restaurant in the East Village. There isn’t a middle ground when it comes to this restaurant; it’s either you know and love dining in, or you probably haven’t heard of it. Either way, their menu boasts a delectable collection of traditional Greek cuisine from all regions of Greece and are made with the freshest high-quality ingredients available.

We had a great meal, greatly suggested wines. The host was attentive and knowledgeable and the food was outstanding. Also, this has to be one of the best outdoor seating spots in NYC. Get the lobster pasta and the spicy feta and zucchini chips, A+. – Stephanie Urbaetis
Snack Taverna isn’t really a hole-in-the-wall diner, but it’s also not big. This meek West-Village spot has a very loyal clientele and arguably one of the best Greek salad available. Their kitchen whips up an array of a bold-flavored mix of home-style, traditional, and modern Greek cuisine on a daily basis. They also have an amazing collection of Greek wine starting at around $8 which is perfect for that first date.

This Greek restaurant has awesome food with great service. The drinks were on point and the food was amazing. Got to get baklava when you come. – Kalie Zacharie
Souvlaki GR warps you to the island of Mykonos, on of Greek’s most popular isles. It’s a very charming and diverse island, welcoming a diverse crowd of tourists that also has a very appealing nightlife.
The family-owned restaurant prides itself on serving fresh and authentic Greek cuisine. Souvlaki GR has three restaurants but has also retained two food trucks from their humble beginnings. Most dishes in their amazing menu have been passed down from generations and has maintained their quality standard.
