Lyra is an upscale Greek restaurant in Fulton Market from the team behind Siena Tavern and Prime and Provisions. Like those spots, Lyra is loud, crowded, has a gigantic bar area, and an even larger dining room. But where those other restaurants have really good food, Lyra’s menu is hit or miss. It has a selection of spreads that are just fine, like tzatziki and spicy feta served with a tough pita and an overly-acidic tuna tartare that’s wet like a ceviche. But there is also flaky spanakopita and tender lamb ribs that are delicious enough to help you forgive the restaurant’s flaws. It’s all pretty expensive though, so you should only come here if you’re in the mood to be somewhere buzzy while surrounded by an absurd amount of wicker lampshades.
