Avlee Greek Kitchen is officially open! This has been an exciting year and are proud to welcome customers to enjoy our ”homemade” Greek food. We are located just off the Carroll St subway stop in Brooklyn New York and offer a wide variety of traditional Greek meals along with some select chef favorites. With the aroma of Greek food you will find yourself thinking of memories of Greece and deserve nothing but the best food. As with any story of how a restaurant opens there is a story. This is our story,
“Around my early teens, I decided to scrap my birthday party. My friends were very upset. Not so much about the missed cake and celebration – they just saw another chance to enjoy my mother’s cooking. Eagerly preparing my next bite, with my mouth full, I’d blurt out, “Ma, if we opened up a restaurant, we can make a fortune with your cooking.” Smiling with pride, she would always reply, “I only cook for my family.”
Well, some things haven’t changed. Mom still only cooks for her family, but we’ve managed to get the family recipes. Growing up around my mom’s cooking gave me an education on what “homemade” truly is.”
Don’t take our word for it. Trust is built on consistency. We invite you to come in and taste the difference. Only then will you know what we’ve known all our lives – what “homemade” truly is.
