Got to have it! Add these to your Holiday To-Do List!


The Italian favorites you know and love are even better at Palermo.

The Linguine Fra Diavolo is outrageous, as it features a spicy yet flavorful sauce and generous portions of mussels, shrimp, clams, and scallops. While you’re here, you absolutely can not leave the restaurant without trying their old-fashioned square pizza. It’s downright addictive and will have you coming back for more. End your meal with decadent Tiramisu cups for a cute twist on a traditional dessert. A mix of classic and trendy menu options like these make Palermo stand out amongst the crowd.

Nikos Souvlaki

Go Greek at Nikos Souvlaki; you won’t regret it!

Said to have the best Souvlaki in town, this is just the beginning of the standout dishes here. For a departure from the usual, the pancetta appetizer can not be passed up. Pork belly, slowly roasted for over 3 hours is nestled beside a refreshing green salad topped with creamy dill Manouri cheese. Before you leave, make sure you have dessert. Indulge in the Kantaifi, a Greek pastry with fine strands of dough wrapped around a nut filling creating a perfect little bundle. Located on Ditmars, this corner spot is not one to be missed.
