On a very rainy/miserable day in New York City, just prior to visiting a relative in the hospital, we came upon "Cafe Greco" on 2nd Avenue. We looked outside at the menu, which advertised a $19.00 prix fix menu. What could we lose? We were in for a wonderful treat. The bread also comes with home-made mini croissants and corn muffins. There were about 10 selections of appetizers, 8 for entrees, and about 9-10 for dessert (coffee or tea included). My choice was a hanger steak & hubby had grilled fish combination. My steak was absolutely delicious! It was very large (especially for a lunch portion), tender & tasty, accompanied by fresh vegetables and potatoes. Hubby was very happy with his selection as well.
This lovely restaurant is owned & operated by a Greek couple. It has pictures of Greek scenes all over; in addition there are certain areas that can be 'privatized' by curtains that can be closed. It is very cosy and charming. In addition, there is an outside garden - we hope to return when it's spring and sit outside.
It was a lovely lunch for us and we look forward to coming back.
By the way, do not let the construction of the 2nd Avenue subway stop you. The restaurant is there!
