Village Taverna is a big, generic-looking Greek restaurant in Greenwich Village that serves a surprisingly large variety of traditional Greek food. And it isn’t bad. It isn’t the best Greek you’ll find in the city, but it’s good for a casual weeknight dinner or a quick lunch with an aunt who just wants a piece of fish. There’s plenty of seafood, and fans of meat will also have many options. Get some grilled beef with a mound of rice and salad, and try some kind of Greek cheese you’ve never had.
