Thalassa Restaurant Review

: Spacious and welcoming, Thalassa courteously offers up all the delights of Greece. Dark wood and a sleek marble bar give the TriBeCa space a crisp nautical allure. How fitting when fresh seafood is the star at this upscale Hellenic haven. First, dive into a basket of savory olive-studded bread, then opt for one of the seafood delicacies---imported directly from Greece, Spain, Portugal and Nova Scotia---like a lean white lavraki, enlivened by lemon juice. We also suggest the Maine diver scallops wrapped in kataifi with sheep’s milk butter and kalamata balsamic reduction; calamari stuffed with Dodonis feta, fresh oregano and pine nuts; and the Portuguese octopus grilled with micro organic greens, olive oil and red wine vinaigrette. Lamb, pounded thin carpaccio-style, comes piled high with frisée. Desserts are a roster of classic Grecian gems, but instead of the baklava, one of the creamy artisanal cheeses is a better bet.
