Avra Madison

OPENED1192 DAYS AGO

Avra Madison is a new restaurant just opened in upper Manhattan, a Greek place located steps away from Central Park.

Run by the club/restaurant kings, The Tao Group – who own a plethora of hit spots, spanning New York City, Las Vegas and even Sydney – Avra Madison is the group’s second Greek restaurant and follows the success of Avra Estiatorio just around the corner.

Avra Madison’s kitchen is run by Tao partner and executive chef Ralph Scamardella and offers up traditional greek cuisine with an emphasis on fresh seafood. The expansive menu displays an offering fit for any sea-foodie and offers appetizers like a Carpaccio Of Octopus (with extra virgin oil, lemon and capers), Chilean Sea Bass Slouvaki (grilled and served over a roasted red pepper sauce) and Ouzo Mussels (steamed with tomato, anise and feta).

The sections are then broken down into Salads, Sashimi, Raw Bar, Fresh Fish (by the pound), From The Sea, From The Land and sides. Opt for a whole fish and choose from over 17 varieties from Snapper, Branzino and Lobster or go for a whole dish like Chilean Sea Bass Plaki (oven baked, vidalia onions, potato, herbs, light tomato fish broth) and Arctic Char (grilled Icelandic Char, sautéed wild mountain greens).

For those looking for something other than fish, there are dishes like Grilled Colorado Lamb Chops and an 8oz Filet Mignon as another tasty alternative.

The 207-seat bi-level eatery evokes a sense of the Greek countryside with 8-foot tall lemon trees at the entrance and white-washed stone walls. Two custom wall-mounted sculptures composed of concrete and white rock salt, by artist Fernando Mastrangelo are also found in the main dining room and private dining room downstairs.

Avra Madison is currently in soft-opening with a grand opening on Friday 9th September.
