Say Uncle Nicks for casual New York Greek food

Uncle Nick’s is a crazy little space in Hell’s Kitchen that’s vibrant with patrons and with an energetic staff.  The place consistently puts out unpretentious good Greek food.

Whether visiting as a couple or a group, sharing appetizers is a must at Uncle Nick’s.  Some can’t-miss options are the saganaki, or flamed Greek cheese, the inopikilia sampler platter for two, the combo of four dips and the grilled octopus.  The inopikilia platter is a good option for folks unfamiliar with Greek food or for anyone who wants to try a variety of fresh dishes like the octopus, the Greek sausages, dips and feta cheese.

Entrees are equally delicious, but become somewhat of an afterthought after munching on such tasty starters.  Some favorites are the kebobs – beef, lamb, pork or chicken, the baked mousaka, the pastitsio and the Greek-style halibut.  The fish is fresh and the kebobs are perfectly charcoal-grilled.

Uncle Nick’s offers catering, takeout and delivery and the restaurant is open for both lunch and dinner.  Beware that the place is loud, but not in a bad way.
