Elea Greek

  • 217 W. 85th St., New York, 10024, United States
  • 36 - 75 USD • Greek
MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

The pretty and polished Elea has been a hit out of the gate, and no wonder. The striking, picture-perfect décor is fitted out with whitewashed brick walls, bright azure chairs, and weathered wood beams, giving the elegant space a serene and breezy coastal vibe. Pair that with the talented kitchen team’s gorgeous, rustic Greek dishes and it feels like a much-needed escape from the stark Upper West Side. Dinner might begin with a shaved Brussels sprouts salad, tossed with almonds, raisins, and mint; or tender fritters filled with roasted cauliflower, pine nuts, honey, and currants. Fish can be cooked in three different styles—a simple sea bass arrives wildly fresh and grilled to perfection, with a squirt of lemon, cracked sea salt, herbs, and olive oil.
