In the Kitchen

Enticing aromas waft from an open grill where whole fish – oloklero psari, a gluten-free specialty – are suffused with flavor from natural wood charcoal, then finished with ladolemno, a delectable olive oil and lemon sauce. Lamb, quail and steaks also get a smoky infusion on the imported grill.

At the Bar

Consider the Hellenistic Happy Hour at the bar and commodious Euro Lounge a mini-vacation to a sunny Aegean isle – where creative concoctions like a Jalapeño Pomegranate Martini take the chill off winter. Learn to make Greek-inspired libations at lively Cocktail 101 mixology demonstrations, which acquaint guests with intriguing Mediterranean spirits like mastika, or sample a quartet of food and drink pairings of ouzo, scotch and other tastings.

In the Recipe

While honoring authentic Greek culinary traditions, the Zannakis family that operates Yianni’s Taverna puts a fresh contemporary stamp on classic dishes and signature seafood preparations. The menu features such time-tested family recipes as Loukaniko, a homemade sausage flecked with orange, fennel and herbs, and Kakavia, a fisherman’s soup with clams and shrimp. “Every island has a different version,” says Melissa Zannakis. “This one is from Andros.” Such delectable fare also boasts the health-promoting properties of the popular Mediterranean diet.
