A year after opening for the first Sunday evening, Nerai is still welcoming guests on Sunday evenings for a now familiar yet always exciting Greek meal. The menu always has favorites, but seasonal changes keep it fresh and engaging, so regulars and first timers alike can find a dish that suits them perfectly – or order several to share.
Joining the perennial pita bread and spreads, saganaki and the famous Chips Nerai (zucchini and eggplant, sliced thin, fried and served with tzatziki) are other table pleasers like cod croquettes, spinach pies and oysters.
Appetizers run the gamut, from grilled Langoustines to char grilled King crab legs to tuna tartar. The adventurous sample the pork belly, while the sophisticated enjoy the foie gras torchon. There’s even calamari – but not the simple fried rings you’d expect – instead, Nerai’s is stuffed with feta, shrimp and pork and seasoned with saffron.
Dinner can be light, consisting of salad and seafood; choose from haddock, monkfish or sole, or opt for scallops, lobster, or black tiger shrimp. Those seeking a more robust repast can enjoy short ribs, Cornish hen, Crescent duck, lamb chops or filet mignon.
Vegetarians don’t have to ask for substitutions; simply order the delightful, risotto Strapatsada (a tomato ragu served with manouri cheese and a heirloom poached egg and dressed with a fine balsamic reduction) or the Gemista (a stuffed tomato with zucchini and fingerling potatoes.) Each dish is cooked to perfection, with every plate arriving at your table steaming hot and delicately accented with exotic sauces and garnishes.
