Chef Harry Hatziparaskevas stoked the savory fires of Ithaka during a successful seven-year stint on Barrow Street. After deciding that it was time for a change, he learned that the location of Estia, a venerable Greek restaurant/nightclub on East 86th Street, was available. His new Ithaka is a deep and roomy restaurant with clean lines, exposed brick walls-painted white as you progress into the interior-and a stone floor whose white grout provides bold contrast on the surface. Recessed ceiling lighting at the rear of the room is filtered through white fabric.
