Retsina, Kefi and Anthos January 10, 2007

Posted by grhomeboy in Greek Taste World.

This traditional Greek spot is owned by Yannis Hatjopoulos and his wife, Katerina. They expect to start serving meze, individual casseroles of moussaka and baklava, by Monday. The consulting chef, Thomas Xanthopoulos, was formerly at Periyali: 115 East 60th Street; (212) 486-8826.

Michael Psilakis will close Onera tomorrow and reopen it on Monday with this new name, which is a Greek term meaning high spirits. The decor will be dressed down and the menu will be more rustic, with regional dishes, casseroles and cheaper prices ($14.95 maximum; no credit cards): 222 West 79th Street, (212) 873-0200.

Mr. Psilakis also plans to open Anthos, with Greek haute cuisine in an elegant setting, at 36 West 52nd Street. It will replace Acqua Pazza, which will close after dinner on Valentine’s Day. Donatella Arpaia, Mr. Psilakis’s partner in Dona, which just closed, will be his partner in both restaurants.
