Estiatorio Rafina: Things you don’t expect from a Greek restaurant: speakeasy-worthy cocktails, white tablecloth service, a chic and airy dining room, and a hip bar area. But Estiatorio Rafina is all about superseding expectations—after all, it’s a restaurant in Murray Hill that you’ll actually want to go to (imagine that!). With amiable wait staff offering to de-bone your fresh Bronzino and arguably the best spanakopita this side of the Aegean, there’s no shortage of offerings to keep foodies sated. But if My Big Fat Greek Wedding has taught us anything, it’s that Greeks know how to party, and Estiatorio Rafina is happy to oblige. Sip on surprisingly-excellent cocktail creations ($12) like the Summer Bulleit (Bulleit Bourbon, fresh lime juice, honey water,) in their raised bar while spying on the guests below. Come 10:30pm, the live music starts to play, those diners begin to clear, and it’s time to show off your best "opa step"—don’t be shy, it’s all Greek to everyone!
