The chefs at Psari draw on Greek influences to craft a menu of fresh seafood specialties, giving palates a taste of Peloponnesus in a convenient location adjacent to public transportation. Psari’s raw bar serves up fresh Blue Point oysters, shucked and served on the shell like a sunbathing mermaid. Whole Maine lobsters scuttle eagerly onto plates, served alongside a choice of salads, soups such as fish soup and shrimp bisque, and sides that include lemon potatoes and greek chips. Psari’s extensive wine list features domestic and imported vintages alongside Freixenet Cordon Negro sparkling wine that tickles tongues with a grape feather duster and tastes of vanilla, cream, and apple.
Within Psari’s dining space, elegant table settings fill a dining room characterized by dark hardwood floors, bright white walls, and high, ornate ceilings. A bar showcases a selection of spirits, and booths and a flat-screen TV lend an air of hominess to this tasteful neighborhood establishment, much like a spritz of laundry-scented perfume.
Borrowing its name from the Greek word for "fish," Psari Restaurant bedecks dishes with the ocean-fresh bounties of the sea, serving up seafood broiled, grilled, or fried whole along with traditional Mediterranean eats and raw shellfish delicacies. To begin meals, guests pick out their favored catches of the day from their chilly iced display, or mull over choices of juicy steak, lamb chops, and subtly seasoned Greek appetizers. The café bottles its savory aroma within an elegant space decked in dark wood, a gleaming stone bar top, and soft accents of blue and white to match the colors of the Greek flag, as well as the chromatic scheme of Poseidon's underwater bungalow. In addition to preparing tantalizing meals of fish, crab, octopus, and lobster, Psari's helpful staffers pair meals with selections from an ample wine list as well as a complimentary phyllo-and-egg-custard dessert with each dinner.
