  1. Just go with the fresh fish and shellfish. They have daily selections, and in my experience everything is incredibly fresh.

    1. Earplugs. It's one of the noisiest restaurants in New York. But the fish is amazing.

        Everything was fantastic. We started with the appetizer special, beautiful huge red snapper sliced sashimi style with a citrus and black pepper,a ceviche like dressing. There was also a grilled shrimp appetizer which was tops, nice big shrimp. Crabcakes as well, they were good tho not something I would have usually ordered. And of course a greek salad with Tomatoes from some magical land where it's currrently July.

        I was starving so had the baby lamb chops instead of fish, 3 pieces per order but they're double cut. Extremely good lamb, I order medium rare, would have liked them a little more rare. But the pièce de résistance, a huge black snapper (black something, maybe sea bass. Def not cod). It was huge, grilled, filleted, split between 3 people.

        Everything was great so the bill was less painful to swallow. Not a cheap joint, but I think I'm gonna get some good business out of it. I'd definitely go back, Dad's birthday perhaps.

      2. Was told that the lobster salad was amazing, but the one time I went to Milos (alone), I couldn't stomach the thought of $42/lb (2.5lb minimum size of lobster).
