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


        141 East 48th Street, New York, NY 10017

        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).

              i love the food at snack, down in soho. they make a GREAT spinach pie, and also an awesome greek salad too.

            2. Thanks all for the suggestions - and I hereby drop the tabouleh idea, would rather get a really good spanikopita at an authentic Greek place.

                Don't know if Pylos (Greek) in the EV has spanikopita, but we had another great dinner there Saturday night. Their menu is probably on menupages.com

                  So, Nina P, did you find a good spanikpota? I am on the same quest. Lower Manhattan, preferably somewhere near the west village or the 1 train (we have a disabled person in our party) (don't want you to think we are just lazy) (not that we're not lazy). thanks!

                    Excellent spanikopita at Molyvos, on 7th Av., b/t 55th & 56th Sts. Not far from the 59th St./Columbus Circle stop on the 1 train.
