Hovarda is an Aegean (Greek / Turkish) restaurant in Soho. The restaurant itself is quite stunning - downstairs is the main restaurant space that looks like something out of a “Visit Dubai” brochure (not in a bad way), and there’s a lounge bar upstairs that would be a good place to start a night out. The food is perfectly fine, and you’ll eat solid versions of things like tuna tartare and tomato salad - they’d be great if this were your local neighborhood Greek restaurant. But the prices are quite high, and the food doesn’t fully live up to the setting. This could be a fun restaurant but for now, the food is a little bit too ordinary and a little bit too out of our price range to entice us back there.
