Harbor East's newest restaurant, the gorgeous Ouzo Bay: Greek Kouzina, is ready for your business. Dinner will be offered tonight, starting at 5 p.m. Lunch will be added in the future.
The place, dining room, pictured, is stunning. I just had a tour by co-owner Alex Smith—also Harbor East Delicatessen and Pizzeria and Asian Grill. "Everything is custom-made and specially designed for us," he said.
Beautiful marble, mosaic-tile floors, lush woods, and hand-blown glass lights are just some of the details. Even the outdoor tables on the slate deck are marble.
The menu offers classic Greek specialties, featuring "prime" meats and fresh seafood flown in daily, including colossal 20-ounce lobster tails, jumbo prawns from Madagascar, and Dover sole from Holland.
A fish case, pictured, showcases the catch. Whole fish, like bronzino, red snapper, and dorade, are priced per pound and grilled on charcoal. Other preparations include seafood pasta and a double crab-cake platter.
Steak, lamb chops, chicken, and pork chops are available for carnivores. Entrees range from $18-42 on average.
A pastry chef from Greece will be creating a variety of desserts.
Beverage director Julian Albornoz has assembled an impressive selection of boutique spirits and wines (including more than 50 from Greece). He will also feature 10 to 12 ouzos from various Greek islands. "They all taste different," he explained.
There are also brews on tap, including Resurrection, Dogfish Head, and Magic Hat.
A website is being developed. Ouzo Bay is at 1006 Lancaster St. at the corner of Central Avenue. Phone: 443-708-5818.
