Cititour: The New York Guide to Events, Restaurants, Music, and Nightlife



Cuisine: Middle Eastern, Mediterranean, American


Santorini is an all-day Mediterranean cafe serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. Appetizers run the gamut from American favorites like chicken nuggets and wings to Middle Eastern dishes like baba ganoush, falafel and stuffed grape leaves. Larger plates include shish kebab (chicken, beef and shrimp) and marinated chicken (half or whole). One things that is worth a visit is the Feteer or Egyptian style pizza. The fillings are wrapped in filo dough like a stuffed pizza. We tried the meat mixed with mozzarella cheese, onions, green peppers, olives and tomatoes. It was quite good. Other fillings include shrimp, vegetable and Pastirma, a type of heavily-spiced cured beef. For dessert, look for assorted pastries and Loukoumades, bite-size puffs of deep-fried dough served with honey and other sauces, including Nutella and dulce de leche. Several types of crepes are also offered, both sweet or savory. >>
