#HolidayPeachy #MothersDay #NewYork #Manhattan @AmmosEstiatorio @AmmosNewYork by #DimitrisNakos Brilliant Specials on May 12, 13 and 14, 2023 to Captivate Your Celebration!

Luxurious Lump Crab embellishes the Succulent Red Snapper!
Ammos sets the standard in holiday celebrations in Manhattan!
In Manhattan's fine dining scene, there are the ordinary, and there are the extraordinary, like Ammos Estiatorio, who showcase the finest fish in town.  Not only were they smashing when we first met over a decade ago, but they continue to show us they are committed to our ever to excel philosophy as time goes by!  At Whom You Know, we are champions of freshness and Ammos could not be more committed to this with their sensational array of fish.  Today's highlight for Mother's Day specials boasts two fetching entrees deserving of your palate.
As you enter the fine space all expanded post-covid to include a fabulous expanded bar area, Ammos Estiatorio has the freshest fish on display to greet you with a smile!  This area has more than doubled in size but the healthiness of the Mediterranean fish diet ensures that you will most certainly not!
Spring is here!
The upscale atmosphere strikes the right balance: neither stuffy nor casual.
No one marks an occasion like Ammos, and classy owner Dimitris Nakos personally greets guests upon their arrival.  The fragrant joy of spring awaits your presence!
Allow us to introduce to you the specials for Mother's Day 2023 available from May 12 to May 14, 2023 created especially for you by Executive Chef Bruno Marino!
Ooooh we just adore the violet and green color combination of the nutrition power couple of radicchio and romaine!  Seedless red grapes bring a sublime sweetness to this party and the yogurt-based dressing accentuated with honey, white balsamic vinegar and salt and pepper is a celebration in itself.  Our personal favorite part was the amazing fresh dill that not only smells terrific but also adds the right notes of flavor to this eminently worthy salad.
Without a doubt, our favorite Mother's Day special is the Lump Crab on the Filet of Red Snapper, pan-seared.  Words do not do justice to the seafood-in-tandem!  Microgreens, rosemary, rice strategically dotted with vegetables and a lovely ragu all take the crab and red snapper to further heights!  This is an entree to adore and it gets our vote to not only be a Mother's day special but also a permanent resident of the Ammos Menu....we shall see!  Go order it starting May 12th and tell us what you think. 
Another wonder of nutrition is the red and golden beet salad!  Goat cheese hops in with arugula and pignoli (pine nuts!) to add flavor and texture to the super salad.  White balsamic vinegar evokes higher taste levels to seal the salad deal for Mother's Day.
As always, you are as beautiful as Ammos or we do not publish.
All pictures are always unedited.
Life can be full of surprises, but a present that you want as a surprise is the brilliant Branzino cooked en papillote.  Garnished gorgeously by capers and parsley, the moist, tantalizing delight of Branzino is joined by a nutritious chorus of zucchini, baby carrots and oven-roasted lemon potatoes.
Nykta means night in Greek, so Nykteri means harvesting the grapes at night.  Introducing the first Santorini wine that established the phenomenon!  The grapes grow in baskets because of the high elevation and strong winds: the basket protects the grapes.  Predominantly Assyrtiko at 75%, Nykteri is also composed of 15% Athiri and 10% Aidani and is matured for 3 months in French oak barrels, yielding the perfect blend for your Mother's Day celebration.

Ammos Estiatorio continues to earn our Highest Recommendation.
