Greek
We are bringing "True Greek" to the Upper West Side. At eléa, we only use the finest quality ingredients (Grade 1 Yellow Fin Tuna, Loche Duarte Scottish Salmon) to create traditional "True Greek" fare. Now Open, on the heels of the successful summer opening of Kyma Flatiron, sister restaurant eléa on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. With an open split-level design punctuated with traditional Grecian pottery and décor, eléa will transport guests to a romantic island vacation while also evoking an intimate, softly lit aesthetic perfectly suited for the uptown neighborhood. Meaning “olive” in ancient Greek, eléa offers guests a menu of soulful and modern Greek dishes that encompass flavors across the region’s many islands and terrains.

    As usual, the food was very good. It's the kind of place you can eat in courses, or share various items. Plentiful servings and it's very good. Service was excellent.

    As always Elea, great service, great food! Our server was Christina, who was very friendly with a smile on her face which made our experience even better. As a Greek, I love Elea, it is my go to restaurant and I introduce to all my friends.

    The restaurant is very pretty and the food is quite good. However, at least downstairs and on a Saturday night, it was noisy. It is also a bit expensive (though so many restaurants are expensive these days.) Overall, it’s a nice place for a special occasion.
