Something Greek Pastitso becomes absolute hit with New Yorkers


If you are in the Brooklyn area of NY and craving some Greek cooking that reminds you of Mama’s or Yiayia’s dishes, head to Something Greek, which has become a hit with New Yorkers, who drive from all over the state to eat their famous Pastitso.


From the blue and white décor in the dining room, to the fine filo pastry that is handmade for their specialties, including Spanokopita and Baklava, Something Greek evokes the relaxing mood of a sun-washed island on the Aegean.

The popular eatery, on Third Avenue, also has an outdoor area where you can enjoy some alfresco dining, while enjoying the mouthwatering menu of Greek favourites, just the way Mama and Yiayia make them.

Here at Somethingreek, we're often asked, "How are we different?" And the truth is, we're not trying to reinvent the wheel. Instead, we're embracing tradition and nostalgia, serving up rustic Greek food just like Mama used to make back when we were growing up in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn.

Our approach is simple: we cook with love and authenticity, using recipes passed down through generations. From our perfectly seasoned gyros to our mouthwatering souvlaki, every dish is prepared and marinated to capture the flavors of home, whether it's in Brooklyn or Greece.

At Somethingreek, we believe in doing things right. That means sourcing the highest quality ingredients and letting their freshness and authenticity shine through in every bite. Our commitment to quality extends to every aspect of our menu, from the juicy chicken and pork gyros to the creamy tzatziki and hummus.

But what truly sets us apart is our family. As proud "Bay Ridginals" with roots in the neighborhood for over 50 years, we not only own but also operate Somethingreek. It's a labor of love for us, and you can taste it in every dish. Mama herself oversees our kitchen, using her own cherished recipes to create daily dinner specials that we, her five children, have been enjoying for as long as we can remember.

So if you're craving a taste of home, come join us at Somethingreek. We're more than just a restaurant – we're a celebration of family, tradition, and the rich flavors of Greece right here in Bay Ridge.


The recipes are all family secrets, says Mitilineos, who loves using extra virgin olive oil for her pastries, and makes everything fresh daily.

“Our food is different from other Greek restaurants because I am the one who cooks here,” she says.
