MOLYVOS (141 E 48th St, New York, NY; 212-582-7500), an upscale Greek seafood specialist with a pre-theater menu appealing to Carnegie Hall–goers, has been in operation for decades. Owner John Livanos began his career in diners, mostly in Westchester, expanding eventually into the exclusive dining business. The extraordinary legacy of the Livanos family began in 1957 when Livanos immigrated to the United States from Greece and began his career as a dishwasher, working for his uncle in Manhattan. He purchased his first restaurant in 1960, and later opened the elegant Livanos Restaurant in White Plains, NY, in 1985. Today, John and his children, Nick, Bill and Corina, also own and manage the critically acclaimed Oceana in New York City, as well as Moderne Barn in Armonk, NY, and City Limits locations in White Plains, NY, and Stamford, CT. Molyvos is described in Zagat’s as a “perennial favorite” that follows through with “top-notch” Greek grub and “amiable” service; “bearable” acoustics and a “spacious-by-Manhattan-standards” setting complete the “solid” picture.
