I recently discovered how delicious Feta cheese is and now I am obsessed with finding IN MANHATTAN the best Greek salad.
Agreed... the traditional style greek salad at Snack Taverna is very good.
Uncle Nick's, on 9th Av., bet. 50th & 51st Sts. Note: the "small" size is large, and the "large" size is huge.
Definitely a good choice. Nice big block of feta in the salad.
Periyali, hands down. A small Greek salad and the octopus appetizer make a perfect lunch.
When you tire of salsd, check out the Feta, spinach and olive pizza slices at The Cast Iron Cafe. I wouldn't make a special trip but if you are near 6th Ave & 19th st, it's a tasty quick bite.
I cannot tell you how long I've been searching for a good spinach and feta pizza. Conicidentally, I'm looking at apartments in that neighborhood this afternoon, and will certainly give it a shot.
Are these traditional greek salads without lettuce? I've had tons of traditional style salads while on vacation in Athens, and I cannot stand lettuce in "greek" salads in nyc.
Yes, Snack Taverna, Snack, and Pylos all serve the traditional Greek salad.
Agree with the above that Snack Taverna's is very good. Pylos has great feta but half the time their tomatoes are very bad.
Snack Taverna has the GREEK salad of Greece. Pylos tries, but for some reason can't keep consistent. I cannot recommend Uncle Nick's. It just doesn't sit right for me. It IS a New York Greek joint though...for what it's worth.
