From the Greek meaning "set sail," En Plo Estiatorio delivers piscine pleasures that stand out in their freshness and the simplicity of their preparation. Nestled in an Upper West Side brownstone, the dining room charms with exposed brick, beige and orange walls, flowing drapes and candlelights, and is accented by a model sailboat and wall sculptures of Poseidon and a playful mermaid. You'll find rarified renditions of classic spreads like skordalia, replete with garlic; velvety taramosalata; and grilled specialties like octopus, sardines, and calamari. The main event is whole fish, more than a dozen varieties, from loup de mer to rouget. Many are flown in directly from Greece and are proudly displayed, buried to their gills in ice. Executive Chef Peter Spyropoulos—formerly of Le Cirque, Bouley, Estiatorio Milos, Avra and Pelagos—charcoal grills the fish with olive oil and lemon juice and adorns them with parsley and capers. Oven-baked clay pot dishes also please, including mussels, clams, and shrimp in a tomato and shellfish broth enriched with salty feta cheese. The wine list includes a good selection of Greek varietals. Downstairs, a cozy ouzerie offers 20 varieties of ouzo, the anise-flavored liqueur, as well as "ouzopolitan" cocktails.
