Recently there was a discussion on this board about places to eat near Columbia and Symposium was mentioned. Today my daughter and I ate there and found it satisfactory. The food was fresh and tasty. We had the large appetizer platter, I had half and brought most of my daughter's half home, where my husband enjoyed it. She had a chicken gyro with salad and liked it. I had a side of marinated octopus, it was filling. We had coffee and she had rice pudding. While nothing spectacular, this is a place where I would eat again. Symposium is on 113 St between Broadway and Amsterdam.
