Nestled in Manhattan’s Theater District, a block from Carnegie Hall, Molyvos is known for soulful Greek cuisine. Named for the traditional seaside village on the Greek island of Lesvos, the restaurant takes diners on a multisensory journey to the Aegean Sea and all of its bounty and beauty via menus by acclaimed Executive Chef Jim Botsacos and the largest all-Greek wine list in the U.S. Molyvos unveiled a new design last January that recalls the islands of Greece: a clean blue-and-white palette that pays homage to the rocky coastlines, sandy beaches, and bright blue skies emblematic of the ancient land. “Before Molyvos opened, Greek cuisine in New York was limited to dishes like Greek salad and baklava,” explains Livanos Restaurant Group Owning Partner Nick Livanos, whose ★ Molyvos 871 Seventh Ave. New York city 212.582.7500 family owns, operates, and manages the restaurant. “Molyvos helped introduce Greek cuisine as an elegant and sophisticated choice on the New York dining scene.” Botsacos’s approachable menu offers authentic Greek flavors with a refined presentation for weekend brunch, lunch, and dinner, along with a $38 pre- and post-theater menu. “When you dine with us, there’s something for everyone,” says Botsacos. “We have Greek classics, as well as dishes that take a more modern approach while using nostalgic flavors.” Under the direction of Kamal Kouiri, the wine list includes more than 400 bottles from 60 grape varietals, representing over 50 wineries in Greece — leading to Molyvos’s reputation as one of the top Greek wine destinations in the city. Kouiri also stocks more than a dozen varieties of ouzo, the national aperitif. “After all,” he says, “you can’t really experience a taste of Greece without wine or ouzo.” Photos courtesy of molyvos october 2012 47
