Like its other NYC location in Midtown, this Greek spot is very fancy, with most tables occupied by groups in tailored suits eating lobster or jumbo prawns that cost $118 per pound (fresh fish is flown in daily from around the world). It’s extremely expensive, but if that’s not a concern and/or you’re entertaining clients on the company’s dime, then you’ll eat some good food here, like perfectly cooked octopus with a rich fava bean puree. The dining room with big round tables and floor-to-ceiling windows works for groups, and there’s a walk-in-only bar area where you can get drinks and oysters or order from the full menu.

Kiki’s is a Greek place on the Lower East Side that’s packed every night, and serves good, affordable food.
Gato, Bobby Flay’s Mediterranean spot in Noho, isn’t quite as good as it was when it opened, but it’s still a useful option in certain situations.
It is no understatement to say that Catch is the most over-the-top, ridiculous dining operation the Meatpacking District has ever seen. Thankfully though, the service is fantastic, and the food is pretty great as well, despite the absurdity of it all.
