Located in an historic building at 179 Franklin Street in Tribeca—has been a neighborhood fixture for more than 8 years. Once used as a warehouse for Greek olives and cheeses, the space (designed by renowned architect Jean-Pierre Heim) is now one of the most authentic Greek eateries in New York City.

Thalassa—which means “the sea” in Greek—features a chic curved bar made of marble from the island of Thasos, original exposed brick, flower-filled urns from Tripoli, and handmade Iroko wooden tables from Mykonos. A forty-foot-long wine room leads to a climate-controlled wine and cheese cave that houses more than 2,500 wines, including rare boutique finds from Greece. 

Thalassa has become the destination spot for hosting private events. We have two beautiful private rooms that can accommodate social or corporate events from 20 to 200. We have hosted many weddings, rehearsal dinners and other special events.

We are proud of the numerous awards and reviews we have garnered, we consistently receive a high rating in Zagat. We have been given 3 stars from Forbes and for 3 years we have been awarded for “Fine Dining” from Sante Magazine. Our amazing valued wine list, of over 1,000 labels, has been awarded many awards from Wine Enthusiast and from Wine Spectator a rare award of unique distinction.

Our Chef’s mission first and foremost is to serve only the freshest and healthiest dishes. Our seafood is imported directly from Greece, Spain, Portugal and Hawaii.
