KIKI’S GREEK TAVERN
There’s good reason New York locals return to Kiki’s time and time again. This tried-and-tested favorite located at the juncture of Division and Orchard Streets on the Lower East Side entices with tasty Greek cuisine and a buzzy atmosphere at a price that is more than fair. Start with a drink at the bar—the perfect vantage point for the colorful people-watching you can expect at Kiki’s any night of the week, before taking your seat in one of the three dining rooms (each room has its own distinct charm—you can’t go wrong). The menu is extensive and perhaps a little overwhelming, but this is your chance to order up large and share in the flavors with your dining partner. Try the smoky eggplant dip, grilled octopus, and the whole fish catch of the day.
