"Ousia, located in the iconic VIA 57 WEST, introduces a lively vibe to Manhattan’s newest West Side neighborhood. The latest concept from the Livanos Restaurant Group, Ousia’s Greek-focused Mediterranean cuisine brings the dynamic flavors and textures of land and sea to life on each plate and in every glass. Our lunch and dinner menus, weekend brunch offerings, and innovative cocktails come together with premium, locally-sourced, market-fresh ingredients.
Ousia, meaning “essence” or “flavor,” is a unique and welcome addition to the NYC dining scene. Its homey yet sophisticated ambience welcomes all to an equally approachable, up-and-coming residential neighborhood. Both our restaurant and our menus are designed to foster a communal and vivacious dining experience, so you’re never dining alone. Whether you’re grabbing a bite at our large, double-sided bar or sliding into a comfy booth with friends and family for a meal, we’ll make room for you at Ousia."

This is a fantastic gem on the west side with lots of cuisine options. The turkey leg confit was very tasty, as well as the salmon special and stuffed wild mushroom pasta. We will be returning to this spot
Setting is beautiful, chic and spacious. Cocktails are creative and delicious. I didn't rate 5 stars because although the food was good it was overpriced for the portion sizes and nothing different than any other Greek restaraunt.
We ordered 3 dips, hummus eggplant and roasted peppers with the pita and the mussels to share between 2 and a Greek bottle of red wine (first time drinking red wine) the food was amazing. The restaurant was full but did not feel crowded and our waitress was super friendly and helpful with precise suggestions. Will definitely go back
