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.

"Although I've dined at Kellari many times, I was very disappointed with lunch on Saturday. Although we told our waiter at 12:30 that we had theatre at 2:00. there was no sign of our food at 1:15. When I reminded our waiter of our curtain time, he said, after checking, that my companion's omelet was overcooked and they were making another one. Five minutes later he came out with an undercooked omelet and my crab cake which was barely warm. Obviously we had not time for coffee or dessert.
I don't think I'll be returning anytime soon.
