Local fresh cuisine
Looking for a fresh catch on the West Side? Discover Uncle Nick’s! He was one of the first in the 80’s to bring fresh, moderately priced Greek food to Manhattan, in family-size portions, and he’s been there ever since! We’re not fancy, we don’t dim the lights and our dishes are made to eat, not admire – but when you’re in the mood for a friendly, festive meal – with lots of laughter, good spirits, and generous portions of hearty, Greek cooking, Uncle Nick’s is the place for you.
We’re especially proud of our selection of dock-fresh seafood, but if meats are your love, you won’t find finer, more succulent dishes than our tender baby lamb, veal and beef entrees, grilled, broiled or baked to perfection. And don’t forget the chicken and quail!
When you’re in the mood to relax, your table is waiting. Look around and you may see Dennis Farina, Armand Assante, Dan Rather, Ernie Anastos or any number of familiar faces from theater, politics, and the movies sampling the same mouth-watering variety of appetizers as you! To Uncle Nick, everyone is family, and everyone gets the same warm welcome. When you’re in New York, but your heart is in Greece, come join us at Uncle Nick’s. It’s a trip you won’t soon forget!

No, you don’t get to pick out your fish on a glistening bed of shaved ice. Then again, you won’t hear the soundtrack to Zorba the Greek either. What you do hear at Uncle Nick’s is the dink-dank of little plates hitting tiled tables with the unceasing redundancy of a centipede shod in clogs. It becomes obvious that Nick’s extended family is not shy about its bottomless appetite for anything garlicky, spreadable, finger-pickable, and briny.
