During my stay in New York, I lived in an apartment in Astoria which was predominantly a Greek neighbourhood. Obviously, I would need to try some Greek food.

Having been to Greece a few years ago, I was expecting some local Greek food. Unfortunately, Ovelia was more of a modern Greek cafe and the lunch menu consisted mainly of toasts, salads and sandwiches. Very unlike a typical menu I would find in Athens, for example.

The ambience too was very modern with a shiny bar and contemporary furnishings.

Favorite Dish: Great for people who like feta cheese, haloumi etc.
