Our waitresses Jamie and Zina were delightful. We ate the Greek four course dinner for $36 p/p. What a wonderful meal! Falafel, red lentil soup, fassoulia, branzino wrapped in parchment, followed by chocolate baklava, all on the back terrace, al fresco. Wonderful experience!!

About the restaurant
A fine-dining Mediterranean restaurant that couples the freshness of traditional Greek cuisine with a modern white-washed atmosphere. The walls are adorned with old black and white photos of Greece, a nod to our namesake, which is the origin of “nostalgia.” Our healthy menu has guaranteed returning customers and consists of daily fresh fish, popular lamb dishes, and several vegetarian selections. The Aegean-inspired airy ambiance makes Nostos a romantic choice for a date night; while our private room options make it ideal for special parties or corporate events.

About the restaurant
Chef Eugenia Hobson and her team prepare authentic Greek dishes served attentively in an easy-going, informal setting. Our signature dishes include the grilled octopus, the kolokithokeftedes (stuffed zucchini fritters), the lavraki whole fish (branzino) filleted table side, and the arni giouvetsi (lamb shank with orzo). Our selection of nine desserts are all made fresh daily in-house and feature Greek classics such as the baklava and the galaktoboureko. Our wine list is meticulously curated on a seasonal basis by son Philip Hobson, selecting from Greece's top vineyards who produce indigenous varietals such as Assyrtiko & Xinomavro, and western grapes such as Cabernet Sauvignon & Sauvignon Blanc. Our beer selection focuses on bottled Greek brews while our bar is fully stocked to serve both classic cocktails and signature drinks inspired by the best bars in Athens. We are located in the Seneca shopping square, next to Orange Theory.

I went back for the second day in a row for the seafood salad—a light, delicious summer classic that the chef has made his own. And if you’re feeling a little adventurous, pair it with a Greek retsina. Perfection.

About the restaurant
The name Melina is rooted in Greek origin and derives from the Greek word for "honey". "Mel" can be derived from the name Melissa meaning "honey-bee". The restaurant is named after the daughter of Co-Founder Chef Dimitri Moshovitis. “Melina” will honor the strength of the matriarchy in the Greek family. It will lean vegetable-forward with modernized Greek classics from the sea and grilled meats. Greek cuisine is all about freshness and quality of ingredients and that will be on display in a fine casual setting.

I’ll preface this by saying that I’m a private chef and can be a little, shall we say, specific, lol… and I’ve been to Greece several times, love the food there. And I recently dined at a very upscale (read: expensive & pretentious) Greek restaurant in NY that was very disappointing. Our Mom Eugenia was a revelation! The food was excellent — the mezzes were impeccable, and the octopus (one of my favorite things) was perfection. The room was comfortable and pleasant; my server Kevin was the personification of proper service (and I used to manage restaurants and train servers, so again, I can be a little severe, lol) — he was knowledgeable and personable, with just the right amount of attention paid without ever overdoing it. His wine recommendation was spot-on. All in all, I enjoyed a perfect dining experience. Don’t miss this gem of a restaurant!

My family and I went to the restaurant for the Sunday family brunch on Father's Day. The restaurant was stylish, the servers were excellent, and the food was delicious. I would recommend this restaurant. Some notes - the website menu is NOT up to date. Some items were not offered or had changed. The server did not know some of the answers to the dishes, but did follow up with them. Overall, this was a good choice for us.
