Wanting to try someplace new for dinner close to Carnegie Hall brought us to Molyvos. Open since 1997, Molyvos is named after a seaside village on the Greek island of Lesvos.
Street-level double doors led to a small entryway and another set of double doors. Once inside the doors we found three steps up to the restaurant itself. A portable ramp that can be quickly installed is close by if needed.
Décor “inspired by Greece’s romantic seaside villages…” makes Molyvos very inviting. Wood and flat carpet and ample space between tables make navigation easy. A combination of booths, banquets and tables are found throughout. There is also a full-height bar area. More seating is available on an upper level (three steps). If the steps could be a problem, let them know when making your reservation. They will be happy to accommodate you.
While we studied the menu we enjoyed some delicious hummus and bread. If wine is of interest, you might like to know that Molyvos has “the largest all-Greek wine list in the US.” (website) Too many choices for me!
Our server was wonderful: professional and friendly, graciously accommodating all of our requests. The first thing she did was ask us if we were headed to a performance that evening – nice! The website says, “…celebrating the lifestyle and food that represents the delicious healthful way that people in Greece eat, Molyvos main goal is to “bring filoxenia – the Greek style of hospitality to the heart of New York City… The warm friendly service makes guests feel as if they’re in a Greek home… bringing rustic Greek cuisine to a new level of elegance and sophistication…innovative but authentic Greek fare.” Everything we ordered was delicious and we certainly felt the hospitality. We think we have found another wonderful place to dine near Carnegie Hall.
Multi-stall, handicapped-accessible restrooms are located on the main level. There are no baby-changing stations. As always, we at Destination Accessible, advise you to check a venue’s website, http://www.molyvos.com , when planning a visit, to “know before you go.”
