Ammos is Greek for sand, but Ammos Estiatorio is really all about the water. Mediterranean seafood anchors the menu, seasoned with imported spices such as oregano harvested from Greek mountains. Fresh whole fish comes by the pound—either wild-caught from the Atlantic or imported directly from the waters of Greece, Holland, or South Africa—and takes only a quick sojourn on the grill before showing off its bright marine flavor on the plate. Land-based entrees range from simple pasta tossed with traditional Greek meat sauce to more ornate dishes, such as grilled rack of lamb with lemon potatoes. And, in classic Mediterranean fashion, there are plenty of fresh salads and shareable starters, including stuffed grape leaves, saganaki, and octopus salad with fennel and capers.
The restaurant's upscale offerings haven't gone unnoticed—the 2013 Michelin guide praised the “warm yet efficient service” and the “sunny and sophisticated” atmosphere exemplified by the raw timbers that crisscross the ceiling above the racks of Greek wine. Inverted beach umbrellas also hang from the ceiling, adding a touch of whimsy to the dining room's cream-colored linens, branching flower vases, and fieldstone columns. Located in the Theater District, Ammos Estiatorio beckons play-goers with a special menu for pre- and post-show meals, designed with less crunchy foods so as not to drown out conversation.
