Advice: Reservations are a must. Closed Wednesday.

Specializing in Modern Greek cuisine, here it is all about inventive dishes and desserts by Chef Manos that are all in sync. Enjoyed a wonderful dinner with my friend Lee Man over delicious dishes and attentive service. This was my second visit which was even more impressive than the first. Chef Manos also boasts one of the cleanest and nicest kitchens in the city when it comes to a restaurant kitchen and that is impressive on it’s own.

Loved the Halloumi Fries with honey, and sesame seeds; as well as the House-made sourdough.

Both Manos Patates lemony Yukon Golds and the Chicken Boutakia with the black- eyed bean salad were delicious.

Loved both salads the Beet & Goat Cheese was made with Red Beets, goat cheese mousse, citrus gel that made the dish shine and the Warm kale and Mushroom Salad topped with shaved almonds were outstanding.

Crab Cakes were served with Crab, scallions, dill, Dijon mustard, horseradish mayo; and the Manos Biftekia Signature beef meatballs, with cherry tomatoes, oregano were very very good.

The Hilopites Moshari is a large dish with Greek egg noodles, slow cooked beef brisket, mizithra cheese, tomato foam, and orange zest and it was delicious.

The Vegan – “Chocolate Dome” for dessert was a true surprise to know it was vegan and you would never know, it was divine Chocolate sphere stuffed with mint gel, and passion fruit sauce; with chocolate sauce poured over the top at the table.

This is a gem worth visiting and it is the only authentic Greek restaurant at this level in the city!
