All, Thanks for the great suggestions here. What do think is the most talented Greek (or Turkish) kitchen for a reliable, high quality, creative meal? i.e. fabulous appetizers, entrees (fish at least), desserts? A relative suggests Thalassa.
For Greek-Estatorio Milos-the best zuchinni fried slices! And of course the freshest fish. For more budget minded but just as fresh-Ithaka on east 86 St is wonderful as well-not the cache of Milos but good eats.
