Time Out NY With an eye toward wooing a young clientele, the new owners of Christos Hasapo-Taverna reopened the restaurant as a Greek steakhouse. Consulting chef Mina Newman--a veteran of Tribeca's Dylan Prime and Thalassa--found just the right balance of meat and Greek influences to differentiate the place from other sirloin spots. In addition to oysters, mussels, baked clams and crab cakes, Newman offers traditional starters like saganaki, taramasalata and a terrific grilled, slightly charred octopus that could feed four. But entrées of seared meat, roasted chicken and grilled salmon abandon the Mediterranean and are prepared as if this were any other chop shop. The desserts return to their roots--including a fantastic cheesecake made of a Greek sheep's-milk cheese and covered in dense honey from Crete; and milopita, which is basically a Greek oatmeal-apple crumb pastry.Read Randall Lane's full review of Christos Steak House
