Delightfull Meditteranian&Balkan winebar-restaurant and caterer (or 'marketplace' as they prefer to call it). The discovery of my New York trip. Unfortunately it was not possible to eat there every day (wanted to do some sightseeing besides dining and drinking in this wonderfull relaxed atmosphere). Lovely owner who is happy to guide you through all the delicioushness Balkanika offers. Everything was prepared and served with care and of the best taste. But I loved the bureks the most (handmade filo dough stuffed with fillings of your choise)!
Lovely not to expensive wine list. But to me there was no need to go further than the selection of housewines: a number of great tasting European wines for 6$/glass.
From the other guests I heared that this place is treasured by the New Yorkers. I understand why!
Go there and bring me back some baklava!
