About Michael Psilakis

Michael Psilakis

Michael Psilakis’ destiny as a master of Greek cuisine may have been determined during childhood, when he learned how to spit-roast whole lambs. He is currently chef-owner of several restaurants in New York, cooking show host, and the recipient of several national culinary awards. Appropriately enough, his first cookbook is titled How to Roast a Lamb. @mpsilakis

Lamb Burger ~ Bifteki Arniou

Definitely a nonconformist, this beauty of a burger melds lamb, pork, grilled onion, mustard, parsley, dill, fennel, cumin, lemon, and scallion. We dare you.

The makings of a Mediterranean tuna melt -- a slice of whole grain bread topped with gruyere cheese, a bowl with tuna salad, and a butter lettuce leaf topped with tuna salad, avocado, and pepper

Mediterranean Tuna Melt

It may not be the classic tuna melt yet it’s about to upend everything you thought you knew about yourself and your tuna melt preferences.

Rabbit Confit

Fear not. This Bugs Bunny rabbit confit is so delicious, so falling-off-the-bone tender, you’ll not think once of the cartoon. Promise.
