If you haven’t dined at Maria Loi’s Loi Estiatorio, you haven’t had the best Greek food in New York City from the top woman chef in town. Maria Loi has cooked at the White House and serves celebrities and locals alike daily at her flagship location on West 58th Street.

With a chic yet upscale casual atmosphere, Loi Estiatorio makes you feel like you’ve already arrived in one of the Greek islands. With specialties like Greek lasagna and lamb shanks, you can indulge in healthy, gourmet Greek cuisine and still fit into your skinny jeans. Before starting her flagship restaurant, Maria opened a restaurant in Athens and another location on the Upper West Side. She is now known as one of the top women chefs in the country.


With fresh ingredients and a huge selection of Greek wines, Loi Estiatorio is making Greek food inventive and fresh enough for any foodie.  With new dishes daily and special menus for Fashion Week and movie premieres, this is not your average restaurant. Her Loi-yal guests are more like family.


When Maria is not traveling the globe or cooking at the White House, you can find her at her restaurant proudly displaying her cooking badges of honor.


Whether you’re looking for a private event or an intimate dinner, Loi Estiatorio features the most authentic Greek experience in the city plus a guaranteed celeb sighting almost any day of the week.
