Nerai and Global Alive Host Golden Luncheon with Grace and Greatness of Greece

Nerai and Global Alive Host Golden Luncheon with Grace and Greatness of Greece
This week tastemakers and globetrotters alike gathered for a beautiful afternoon of golden Greek delights. Global Alive founder, Evageline Plakas, hosted a Hellenic Culinary Event at Nerai in Midtown East on November 28th.
The phenomenal restaurant serves haute Greek cuisine. At the special gathering dishes served up were a four-course meal, highlighting the highest gastronomic level of Greek foods that embody the marvel of Modern Greek Cuisine.  Each taste was divine and a reflection of the beauty of the beautiful country.
Guests started their gastronomic journey with amuse bouche of Tzatziki and Tarama, followed by a dish of grilled haloumi cheese with fresh figs over a shaved fennel salad with toasted hazelnuts and a balsamic glaze. The dish is well-known and crafted with elegance here.
A perfectly Grilled Octopus came next with caramelized onions, followed by Seafood Orzo topped with mussels, octopus, shrimp and calamari. Lamb Chops were also served with honey glazed carrots and oregano jus.
To finish off the lunch, a delicious Bread Pudding was served for dessert with almonds, cinnamon, chestnut gelato and praline cream.   Each course was paired perfectly with specialty wines from Greece, courtesy of Wine Director Michael Coll. The day was filled with smiles and elegance.
Greek National Tourism Organization North American Director, Grigoria Kamaterou, happily talked about her passion for Greece and the country that is truly the perfect travel destination 365 days of the year.  Three attendees won 5-night trips to Santorini or Mykonos in 2019 courtesy of Aegean Promo Kostas Skagias.
Nerai offers a contemporary twist on sophisticated Greek dining in the heart of the city.  The restaurant is ranked one of the top 75 in NYC according to TripAdvisor. It features a vivacious bar and elegantly appointed dining rooms in addition to Cava Nerai, providing two private dining spaces.  For more information visit,
