“Greca – New Milford: Opa! I used to live in Astoria, Queens, where great Greek food was on every block. I just had to try this new place with a Greek girlfriend; I was so overjoyed, I was ready to return before I even finished my first meal. The zucchini keftedhes and saganaki had me singing, and I was weak in the knees by the polpetti. And then there were the drinks….”

At Greca Mediterranean Kitchen + Bar we are dedicated to bringing the flavors, traditions and techniques of Greece and the Mediterranean to our guests in ways that range from rustic to reimagined (creative approaches inspired by the traditional). We invite you to embrace with us the Ancient Greek concept of Ευ ζείν (a combination of “living well” and living a “good life”) that is captured in the flavors that we create for you in our kitchen and in our bar.
Under Executive Chef Kosta Ndreu, our talented kitchen produces nearly everything from scratch, and is focused on creating delicious meals that adhere closely to the Mediterranean Diet, which is heralded as among the healthiest (and tastiest). We source produce locally whenever possible; serve fresh fish that is either wild caught or organically- and sustainably-raised; and work with local farms to showcase the wonderful bounty that the local earth yields.
Perhaps the most important connection to the Mediterranean at Greca is our approach to hospitality, where you enter as strangers and leave as friends. “Philoxenia”, the Greek workd for “hospitality” literally translates to “love of strangers”. You are our guests here, and we cherish the opportunity to get to know you by sharing with you our passion for wonderful food, great wine, local beers, and amazing craft cocktails. Whether you are dining tapas-style with shareable meze (small plates), traditionally coursed meals, family style, or some combination of these, we hope you enjoy every moment that you’re with us.
Restaurateur Constantine “Dino” Kolitsas has been working in restaurants since in utero.
