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.

"Excellent Greek/Mediterranean food and a pre-theatre prix fix with plenty of choices and great value. The tuna tartare with capers was very tasty and a very large portion. Arctic char was prepared perfectly and served with mixed vegetables that were not over-cooked, as they often are. Dessert offered several unusual choices, all delicious. The staff was attentive without hovering and we were finished in plenty of time to walk to our theatre. The decor is lovely in this fairly large restaurant and the tables are well-spaced. We will definitely return."
