If we ever opened a ski lodge in the mountains, we’d furnish the lobby exactly like the dining room at Kokkari Estiatorio. The Greek restaurant in the Financial District always has lamb and chicken slowly roasting away on rotating spits along the wall, making the whole place smell incredible. We could easily spend hours in the high-backed armchairs while sipping on Greek wine and feeling dignified. Looking around, you’ll see business execs taking a power lunch with clients and families gathering around one of the big tables, sharing plates of grilled sea bream and lamb chops. Kokkari has been a FiDi staple since 1998, and we’re confident it’ll stay that way for the next few decades.
