One of the smoothest tzatzikis I have eaten. Lovely lamb burger. My wife's lemon chicken was delicious (but too much potato). Friendly staff. We had a great evening here.

MP Taverna is Chef Michael Psilakis' modern approach to traditional Greek cuisine. With three locations across the greater NY Area (Irvington, Astoria & Roslyn), each blends a bustling dining scene with a friendly, neighborhood approach. Guests are welcome lunch, dinner, brunch & happy hour and can enjoy a variety of Mediterranean inspired dishes like Grilled Octopus, Grandma's Meatballs with tzatziki and lemon, a lovely piece of Grilled Branzino or a tender, fall off the bone Lamb Shank Yiouvetsi. This is a mere sampling of the variety of dishes the restaurant offers, along with an extensive offering of seasonal cocktails, wine & craft beer.
