Greek Cuisine Made With Passion
“Meraki” is a Greek word that translates to doing something with passion, with absolute devotion, with undivided attention; to put your soul into something, to put a little bit of yourself into it, be it singing, dancing, painting, or cooking!
Only the Best
Authentic Greek Cuisine
We offer an extensive selection of traditional and modern greek dishes. From Kria Orektika to Thalassina you’re bound to find something that suits your taste.
Head Chef Michalakis “Mike” Sarris, owner and manager of Meraki Taverna, is proud and excited to bring food with his sense of “meraki” to the people of Armonk. Mike loves what he does and it gives him great pleasure to cook for people, to see them happy and enjoying what they are eating.
Born in Paphos, Cyprus, Mike is a graduate of the Cyprus Culinary Institute. He’s worked as a head chef in several resort hotels in and around Paphos, including the prestigious Hilton Nicosia, before coming to America in 1994.
After years of working as a chef in restaurants in Astoria, Queens, and opening multiple locations for restaurant owners, Mike opened his own restaurant, Elia Taverna, in 2009. Located in Bronxville, NY, Mike successfully operated Elia through 2018 when he sold it. He then opened Yia Yia Taverna in 2018 in Brooklyn, NY, and within a few short months had established it as one of the most dynamic Greek restaurants in the borough.
Mike lives Yorktown Heights with his wife Ioanna, his three sons – Andreas, Marcos, and Nikolas – and his dog, a King Charles Cavalier Spaniel named what else?……….Zeus.
