Tiny little restaurant on Arthur Ave has become our weekly favorite and if you're lucky you can get Mama to sing for you--charming 81 year old owner has spent her life there and cooking is great--the cold antipasta is one of the best ever. Enjoy

A friend and I discovered a hole-in-the-wall restaurant called Cafe Greco at 1390 Second Ave between 73rd and 72nd and it was quite a find. It opens up into a spacious and light dining room in the back and it features cloth tablecloths and napkins....More
