A folkloric concept, “kefi” – or the bliss that accompanies bacchanalia – is a word deeply tied to the cultural ethos of Greece. This is what inspired acclaimed chef Michael Psilakis and partner Donatella Arpaia, when they re-opened beloved Kefi Restaurant in its brand new, larger space on the Upper West Side. The menu of favorites straight from Psilakis’ childhood consists of Kefi’s authentic signature dishes, like Baccala, Grilled Octopus, Hilopita, and Tsoutsoukakia (voted New York’s Best Meatballs in 2007 by New York Magazine and featured in The New York Times). There are also some new additions, such as Macaronia Spestofai, Grilled Sardines, and an entirely new section of Greek Sandwiches. From the spacious bar, an extensive list of well-priced Greek wines and ouzos are available to complement each meal.
