Greek food is probably our favorite cuisine on the planet, and sadly, since moving to New York, we've found the authentic Greek food options surprisingly scarce, save for a small handful of city restaurants and a few in Astoria. So last night we finally tried the newish Boukies in the East Village, which opened in the former Heartbreak space. The menu is comprised of a variety of different size meze, or small plates. The service is similar to restaurants in Greece - friendly, no-nonsense and no-rush, in a way that makes you linger over your meal for three hours. Our favorite item of the night were the Psarakia sto Tigani (fried smelts) which were simply served on a plate with a piece of lemon. The light, crunchy tiny fish were savory, salty and delicious, a perfect starter for all the other delicious plates to come. Boukies is located at 29 E. 2nd Street.
