Kellari Taverna is located in the heart of New York City, three blocks from Grand Central Station, Times Square and the Theater District. The dining room decor evokes a subterranean wine cellar designed with contemporary elegance. Kellari features the traditional Greek taverna specialties, such as grilled whole fish, prime chops and meats, and an eclectic selection of contemporary Hellenic savory appetizers ("mezedes") created by our Corporate Executive Chef, Gregory Zapantis. Our menu also features a variety of Greek cheeses, baked or flamed 'Saganaki' style, as well as a selection of Raw and Marinated seafood. The Kellari dessert menu includes innovative specialties such mastiha pudding and warm sokolata with halva ice cream as as well as traditional favorites such as Baklava and Galaktoboureko. Kellari Taverna offers an extensive international wine list featuring the largest selection of Greek wines available in any U.S. restaurant. About 24 wines are available by-the-glass.

"I know, Greek restaurants have the fish display. The fish is grilled with a little oil, salt, pepper, lemon. Fish is served whole and fileted for you. Etc. However, many fish and appetizers are done better than usual at Kellari Taverna for a price that is less than the hot spots. The restaurant is attractive. (This time the noise was minimal because we ate there at 10PM, but usually it is less noisy than most competitors.) You can go to Milos and spend $300 per couple (with wine), or come here and get your meal for $125 per couple (with wine), and at Killari you will be able to have a conversation, too"

Frank's Steaks is an Established Steakhouse since 1988. We have been Zagat Rated Restaurant for the past 20 years and have a strong, dedicated customer base. The Zagat Survey has said: "Best Skirt Steak on Earth," Filet Mignon Like Butter" and "The Cow's Meow". Frank's Steaks is a casual but fine dining establishment with a reputation for serving the highest & best quality foods available at the markets. At first glance our prices may seem high but compared to our competition we offer a very good value for your money. Our Prime Aged meats are as good as any steakhouse in the entire country. We have many signature dishes beginning with our 16oz. Marinated Skirt Steak served with Caramelized Sautéed Onions. Our 26oz Bone-In Cowboy Garlic Ribeye Steak is a customer favorite and our 43oz Porterhouse for Two is tasty & terrific! But Remember at Frank's Steaks "We Ain't Just Steaks. Our varied menu offers something for everyone. We serve an array of Salads, Seafood, Chicken and Chops.

"Frank's is not the best steakhouse on Long Island, but the skirt steak is different and better than others that are around. Portions are very large...you can probably split it.
We were there on a Monday night (started out at 6PM). It was a very quiet night at Frank's. Don't know if it's always like this. There are tables set for large groups, and large groups on rectangular tables can be noisy.

The Greek Kitchen offers a classic selection of Greek food; from baked mainstays such as Moussaka and Pastichio, to popular choices such as Lamb Kebabs and Gyros.

"Looks like a diner with blue and white check table cloths, covered by paper. Dishes are the style of Milos (a very expensive "happening" Greek restaurant), but much less expensive. We ate on the "porch". Tables were close together, so we got the whole conversation of the people at the next table, even though the restaurant was not at all crowded. Whole fish was fresh and grilled perfectly. Ordered the grilled seafood appetizer for two. Luckily we had it as a main dish. Plenty of food."
