MP Taverna, Chef Michael Psilakis’s modern interpretation of a traditional Greek tavern, is an exciting staple in the Westchester dining scene, located steps from the Metro North Railroad and a stone’s throw from the Hudson River.

Open for lunch and dinner, MP Taverna’s accessible, Greek-inspired menu brings Psilakis’ Greek fare into the American culinary lexicon and is another step towards the chef’s goal of putting Greek cuisine on the culinary main stage.

The lunch menu at MP Taverna features a selection of signature items, along with salads and sandwiches. Brunch the MP way over sweet and savory items like Ricotta Pancakes with caramelized apple, almonds, raisins and zabaglione and Roasted Tomato skillet baked eggs with sheep’s milk ricotta, Graviera, basil and garlic.

Honoring the Greek tradition of food as a vehicle for gathering friends and family, Psilakis also offers roasted whole animals for large groups. Choices include Whole Fish, Baby Lamb, Suckling Pig, Kid Goat and Rack of Rib Steak. These are also available for pick-up to wow your guests at home.

The interiors and ambiance of the 18th century building, whose original beams and rafters still stand, have been transformed by Michael David Associates. Guests peer through the mahogany, wall separating the 120-seat main dining room from the bar via different sized rectangular cut-outs. The bar area boasts ten rustic brass chandeliers that hang from an acoustical tiled, 13-foot ceiling, and two LCD television screens. Outdoor seating is available during the warmer months.
