LIMANI RESTAURANT NYC

Limani is an upscale Greek-Mediterranean restaurant in Rockefeller Plaza. The restaurant reminds me of a gorgeous all white lounge in South Beach, Miami. The decor is pure, it’s beautiful and the highlight is a gorgeous water feature with an artistic representation of fishing lines with caught fish hanging just above the water feature.

Limani was the perfect place to reconnect with an old friend, Chrissy Mavros. Chrissy’s Greek heritage allowed her to explain to me that the term Limani means a place at the end of the dock where people fish.

The restaurant’s menu specializes in seafood cooked with a Mediterranean flare. Bread was served with Limani’s very own extra virgin olive oil for dipping. For starters I had the fried calamari. For my main course I had the Mediterranean Sea Bass. The sea bass was perfectly cooked with herbs and capers. The fish was drizzled with olive oil. I really loved the way the flakes of sea salt on the fish spontaneously grazed my taste buds causing subtle bursts of flavor in my mouth.

For dessert I had a treat I could barely pronounce, but absolutely loved. Karodopita is a walnut cake traditionally made in Greece. The cake was served warm with ice cream.

Overall, my experience at Limani was amazing! The food is delicious, the waitstaff is attentive, the entire ambiance is magnetic. On top of the delicious food, reconnecting with an old friend is always a plus.
