New contributing writer Markos Papadatos reviews Long Island eatery GreeKrave, offering Greek cuisine with a modern approach.
On Oct. 31, this Greek-American journalist had the privilege to dine at GreeKrave in Deer Park, New York. It offers authentic Greek cuisine for its patrons, with a modern approach. They utilize the finest ingredients in their cooking, and it is all about high-quality and customer satisfaction.
It was founded by Spiro, a New York City contractor, and Chris, a Long Island diner veteran.
GreeKrave‘s “avgolemono” soup is quite impressive, as well as their side order of Greek fries, and their Greek salad. Patrons can also make any dish a platter with a choice of savory add-ons, such as “soup of the day,” small Greek salad, double pita and French fries.
“The Real Greek” sandwich is worth more than just a passing glance since it is comprised of pork gyro stuffed in a warm pita, lettuce, tomato, onion, tzatziki, spicy feta (“tirokafteri”) and French fries.
Due to its elaborate menu, at Greekrave, there is always something new and different to try at each visit.
For children under the ages of 12, a “Kid’s Krave’s” menu is available, which features pita dog, gyro slider and Koto boukies (chick breast tenders).
They have an array of traditional Greek desserts including baklava, rice pudding, as well as “galaktobureko,” which is custard in filo dough with honey syrup.
All in all, Greekrave is one pleasant fast food restaurant to dine, with a family atmosphere, and Greek music playing in the background. It is worthy of more than just a “rave,” and is a hidden gem in Deer Park. Their goal is to offer authentic and healthy food with a creative twist, and they were able to accomplish that in this visit. The staff and owners are extremely friendly, thus showcasing their Greek hospitality. Greekrave garners 5 out of 5 stars.
Stop by if you’re in Long Island.
