geekin’ over the {greek} // UES eatery Yefsi Estiatorio


meet Christos Christou, the man behind the Upper East Side neighborhood favorite, Yefsi Estiatorio.  serving authentic Greek cuisine & a warm, inviting atmosphere, Yefsi Estiatorio is my new favorite date-night spot.  I dined at the restaurant on a Tuesday [club join up!] with my boyf/beau/bae and it was definitely a night to remember.  from the wine to the apps to the mains and of course dessert [yes please, baklava] the place is truly a gem.  check out the photos below, with link to the restaurant at the bottom so you can make a res.!
