Venue Info

When you think of Greek food, Astoria most likely comes to mind, but Elia in Bay Ridge makes a strong case for authentic Greek food that’s more than a cut above your typical gyro joint. With white-washed brick walls and a wood-beamed ceiling, this rustic taverna will transport you from Brooklyn to Greece with elegant dishes like flaming saganaki and slow-braised lamb shank. This is Mediterranean food of course, so expect a fair amount of seafood, like grilled shrimp with pomegranate couscous and king salmon wrapped in phyllo.
