Spanikopita / spinach pie

I'm looking for excellent spanikopita/spinach pie at a sit-down restaurant in Manhattan. The best spanikopita I've had in NY is from Poseidon Greek Bakery on 9th Ave @ 44th -- delicious, but take-out only. Any actual restaurant suggestions? Ideally I could also get a side of tabouleh to go with it.

  1. Ruben's Empanadas do tasty ones with rice and beans on the side. I don't know about Tabouleh though... And it is kinda take-out-y I guess but I've had many a wholesome hangover cured on its vinyl tabletops.

    1. Ethos, on 3rd Av., b/t 33rd & 34th Sts., has spanakopita on the mezzes menu. Delicious! Lots of other excellent hot and cold mezzes. (No tabbouleh since it's a Lebanese dish rather than Greek.)

      1. I thought Avra's spanakopita was quite good--that was 2 years ago so I'm not sure if anything has changed

        1. avra, ammos, kelari all have greek mezedakia (appetizers). Toubeleh will be harder since, as another poster mentioned, its not a greek dish....

          1. Bereket and Country Kebab have pretty good tabouleh. That said, they have limited seating and are more suitable for lunch (not much ambience or atmosphere).
