Best Midtown Lunch

Milos - The Greek God of NYC

Why we like it:  In our not so humble opinion, Milos is, by far, the best Greek restaurant in the Tri-State Area. It represents the best of Mediterranean food, which means salads with a perfect balance of tomato, cucumber, feta, olive and onion, excellent lamb chops, and a daily selection of fresh market fish that’s best served grilled. If you must eat above 14th Street, then this is the place to be. Its scene is powerhouse from lunch to dinner, when even those living below 14th Street come out to dine. Weekdays at Milos are prime and, even though weekends are quieter, their Sunday supper is a steal. If you’re looking for great value, try their lunch menu, which features a $29 three-course prix fixe. The same branzino served at dinner will cost two to three times more, but it’s worth it.

What to order:  The prix fixe lunch, definitely. Start with the Greek Salad or scallop with orange, move onto the dorade royale for the main course, and then finish with baklava. We always order the Milos special as a side, which is fried zucchini chips with morsels of fried saganaki cheese.  For dinner, we go all out and order the market grilled langoustine and prawns, depending on if they’re available on the menu. When you factor in saving a trip to Greece, the price is always worth it.
