Maria Loi’s mischievous grin, sparkling eyes, and culinary prowess have made her a food superstar; she is a popular television chef in Greece and the author of more than 36 cookbooks, and over 150 magazine editions. She owns an exquisite gourmet restaurant in idyllic Nafpaktos and has a line of Maria Loi dinnerware and kitchen appliances. The Chef’s Club of Greece, a worldwide culinary organization has recognized her as the Global Ambassador of Greek Gastronomy; in June of 2016, she was unanimously re-elected for a second term as the official Ambassador.

Maria now shares her expertise and knowledge with American audiences. She quickly earned a reputation as the U.S. leader in authentic Greek cuisine and ingredients: In March 2012, Maria was invited to cook for President Obama, Vice President Biden, and 250 honored guests at the White House.

Chef Loi brought her unique approach to Greek cuisine to Loi Estiatorio, her flagship restaurant in the heart of Manhattan, an ode to the flavors of Greece (opened February 2015). In 2016, Chef Loi was the inaugural chef of The Ritz-Carlton Central Park South’s Kitchen-Takeover series; she was a panelist at the Mediterranean Diet Roundtable Conference in LA, with professors from Harvard University and other decision-makers in the food industry. She was a judge at the inaugural Ernesto Illy Coffee Awards at the UN, and traveled to Australia as a featured chef for OMG Week, a weeklong festival in Melbourne curated by Chef George Calombaris, with the top Greek chefs from around the world.

Souvlaki GR

We are a first generation Greek, family-owned restaurant that prides itself on the experience as well as our fresh and authentic food. Each summer we would return as a family to Greece to reconnect to our roots and enjoy the island’s way of life. Our children are being raised in the same way to be proud of their heritage and culture.

Souvlaki GR was launched as a food truck and has grown to three full-service restaurants and now two food trucks. When you dine here, we want you to feel like you are a part of our family. Many dishes on the menu are recipes passed down to us from generations. Please join us for a relaxed and homemade dining experience.

Welcome to our “little taste of Mykonos in the heart of NYC”. From the moment you step through our blue doors, we want you to feel like you have been transported to the island of Mykonos in every sense. We play traditional Greek music and our space celebrates the atmosphere of an outdoor island taverna.

Mykonos, an island in the Cyclades group in the Aegean Sea, is one of the most popular Greek isles. It welcomes a diverse crowd of visitors and charms all with its beautiful beaches and nightlife. We believe that the cadence and pace of Greece is quite magical and that is why we want to transport you there.
