Americans can transport their tastebuds to Greece, without actually boarding a plane. The secret… Limani NYC.
This splendid Greek-Mediterranean restaurant in the heart of Rockefeller Center, is one of the best and popular places to enjoy a meal.

We’ve established a relaxing place welcoming to the whole family where you can relax and let us take care of the hard work and dedication that goes into each and every one of our dishes,” the website says.
