Hudson Yards is a relatively new neighborhood in New York City that offers a plethora of exciting experiences, including over 100 diverse shops and culinary destinations, offices for industry leaders, significant public art, and dynamic cultural institutions like The Shed. It's also home to modern residences, 14 acres of public plazas, gardens, and groves, as well as the world's first Equinox Hotel.

One of the must-visit culinary destinations in Hudson Yards is a Greek seafood restaurant located in the center of the neighborhood. The restaurant is known for its use of fresh fish and seafood, which is seemingly right off the boat. The chefs prepare the food with just the right amount of cooking, avoiding the use of heavy butter and sauces. Additionally, the Greek spread appetizers are absolutely delicious, and the view of the Hudson River from the restaurant is simply spectacular. Upon arriving at the restaurant, we were greeted by our Captain, who served as our guide throughout our culinary journey.

The Captain took us up to a display of fresh fish, oysters, and other shellfish. Here, we learned about each item and its preparation, and received some recommendations. Most of the fish served at the restaurant had been flown in from the Mediterranean, ensuring the highest quality and the freshest taste.

All the food at this restaurant is served family-style, meaning that everyone has the chance to try each fish course item. The food is served in batches so that there is only one or two dishes on the table at any given time, allowing us to savor every bite. We've been to this restaurant several times, and it has always been a great experience.

Our waiter was incredibly knowledgeable and gave us a tour of the different fish they had for the day, along with some great recommendations.

We started our meal by ordering our first round of appetizers. My husband and I ordered the crab cake, the Milos special, paper zucchinis and eggplants lightly fried, saganaki cheese, and tzatziki.

This dish is one of Martha Stewart's "best things" ever, and it's one of my favorites as well. I always order it when we dine at Milos. I also ordered the FRIED CALAMARI for the first time and was blown away by how crispy and delicious it was. It was one of the freshest calamari dishes I've ever tasted.

For our second set of appetizers, we both ordered two live scallops, which were grilled and filled with olive oil, dill, salt, and pepper. This dish is a must-try and truly showcases the restaurant's expertise in seafood preparation.

We also ordered the Colossal Stone Crab, which was fresh and served with an excellent sauce.

For our entrees, I ordered the LAMB CHOPS Rule Family Farm All-Natural U.S.D. A Prime Colorado Lamb served with Greek fried potatoes. The lamb was incredibly tender and moist, and cooked to perfection. My husband ordered the fried Barbouni fish, which is one of his favorites. The fish was so crispy and lightly seasoned that the fresh taste of the fish was able to shine through.

We both ordered cocktails this time around. My husband didn't order his usual Pinot Grigio wine, and instead, we wanted to experiment with their cocktail menu and ordered the Amalfi Cosmo, which is Milo's version of a Lemon Drop Martini.

We ended the night by ordering dessert; I had the MILOS – THE REAL GREEK YOGURT, which is local, natural yogurt Greek-style, served with thyme honey from Kythira and walnuts, or traditional Greek spoon sweets. Dwayne ordered the KARYDOPITA, which is a traditional Greek spiced walnut cake that was warm and delicious.

Overall, I would give this restaurant a 10 out of 10 for its location, design, food, and customer service. It's an excellent spot for a date, anniversary, or Valentine's Day dinner, but be prepared to spend some money.
