Fried calamari is one of the best ways to the start any Italian or Mediterranean feast. In Brooklyn, you won’t find a better plate of calamari than at Somethingreek. They cook rustic Greek food the same way their mothers did when we they growing up in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, and they prepare and marinate their gyros and souvlaki to taste the same as those they ate at home and in Greece. Their philosophy: do it right with high quality ingredients and make it taste good. Freshness and authenticity are of ultimate importance to them. Their family, “Bay Ridginals” who have lived in the neighborhood for more than 50 years, owns and operates Somethingreek.
