Authentic Greek diningBoukies is spacious and high-ceilinged with personality and comfortable seating--all seats are good and, best of all, nobody has to face a wall! The help is gracious and non-intrusive, the atmosphere is warm and pleasant. The only reason I rated it very good and not excellent is because I was a little disappointed twice in my entree: a whole snapper that wasn't as fresh and flaky as their branzino, and a swordfish kabob that was overdone. However, I must praise their fresh village salad, perfectly dressed with a slab of delicious feta cheese. I was completely wowed by their Greek yogurt dessert, the richest creamiest yogurt by far I've ever had. And my husband who is very particular approved of his lamb and braised rib entrees.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic Greek food!I am a huge fan of the sister restaurant, Pylos, so I knew I had to try this place. I was very happy with the experience. The food was superb and the ambience wonderful. I like Pylos slightly better, but this one still gets 5-stars in my book. Pylos and Boukies are some of the best Greek in NYC!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely BrunchAfter a fantastic meal at the sister restaurant PYLOS we decided to have brunch with a friend a couple of days later .
We were seated at a booth with 2 sofas and table,a little low to eat but great for lounging after eating.
They have a $15 brunch menu with drinks included,very good value.We were feeling hungary so i ordered the grilled octopus as an appetizer after eating the tasty dish at PYLOS ,really yummy. We all had the steak and poached eggs with potatoes.
I am gluten free so I did not have the overflowing basket of toasted bread with marmalade and Greek honey but my friend stated it was "soo good", the empty basket was confirmation.
It will now be a regular spot .3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMFriends, Food, Wine, Fun...We had a great time! The appetizers were tasty - especially the mussels. Our waiter was so patient as we had two carnivores and a vegetarian; he helped us with selection and recommended v good wine (exactly what i asked for).3/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
