Limani Rockefeller Center is a sister property to Limani of Roslyn, a distinguished upscale seafood restaurant consistently recognized as being one of the top restaurants in Long Island.
At 8,000 square feet of mainly white decor with marble floors, depicting a villa on a exotic greek island, with seating for 250 including outdoor seating in the summer months and a private downstairs dining room, Limani brings upscale Mediterranean cuisine to midtown on a grand scale.
Limani’s top sellers include Kolokithi (paper thin cut zucchini and eggplant served with lightly fried kefagograviera cheese and tzatziki), tomato salad and grilled octopus salad. The Loup de Mer, a whole Sea Bass, over a pound is served on its own, simply but expertly seasoned and is a guest favorite.
The seafood is showcased by the kitchen in an ice filled display where customers can choose their fish or shellfish to be prepared.
Limani’s prices are up there with other top restaurants, but they currently have a pre and post theater menu that makes the restaurant a must try for $46.50. The deal includes 4 courses consisting of appetizer, salad, entree, and dessert with many favorites included allowing guests to sample the cuisine at half the cost. Drinks and tax are extra of course.
