Anassa Taverna is basically the defacto Bloomingdales cafeteria (it’s located across the street from the Third Ave. location), and was therefore built to accommodate the masses. Aside from the two floors of accessory-clad people watching and admiring the restaurant’s very own ouzo bar, Anassa is useful for any semi-spontaneous meetup near the East 60s with a group that’s comfortable paying around $30 for their own Greek entree.

An unexpectedly great Greek restaurant on York Avenue. If we just had a better way to get up here, we'd be here all the time. Who wants to carpool?

A classic Greek restaurant that's been around since the 80's, and still holds up today.
