Theater District: Molyvos

Molyvos starts with a handicap—my strong bias against midtown, theater district restaurants. But Molyvos was a pleasant surprise. The food doesn’t dazzle, but it’s entirely possible to have an enjoyable meal at this Greek eatery.

Things didn’t begin well. When we arrived at the restaurant, they failed to find our reservation. Ultimately, it was all straightened out and the wait staff and management were profusely apologetic. They even served us complimentary spanakopita, flaky triangles filled with feta and spinach.

It was Restaurant Week so we ordered the special. The starter was earthy and delicious, Gigantes Sto Fourno, baked giant white beans, green olives, fennel, garlic and dill. Striped bass was toothsome though a little overcooked.

All in all, in you’re looking for a theater district eatery, you could do a lot worse than Molyvos. Prices ranged from the low 20’s to mid-30’s for entrees.
