The other evening I met a friend at Elenis, a Greek restaurant located at 17th Street and 3rd Avenue. We met to there to celebrate the holiday spirit, a great choice indeed.
Here are some outdoor Elenis holiday images:
Eleni’s restaurant can be described as a tasty journey offering a fatigue-free dining journey through Greece in just a few minutes. And indeed it was… Check out the bar area and the inside decor.

Elenis serves fresh charcoal-grilled fish and meats from both coastal and mainland Greece. Their appetizers include traditional cheeses and organic salads. So what to order?
The Grilled Norwegian salmon paired with a leek rice pilaf was fabulous, along with the fresh, hot, fabulous bread basket. By the way, the salmon arrived at our table much faster than I could have imagined.
It was dessert time, and I ordered Galaktompouriko which translates to Semolina custard with a light, soft filo crust, surrounded by honey syrup. It truly was divine.
Let’s not forget the cappuccino, which topped a great meal.
I recommend Eleni’s if you’re in The Gramercy Park Area. It’s a pleasant place to rest and dine…for a while.
