Fish, Dancing, Outdoor Seating: Athena Comes to Astoria!

You sometimes hear that Astoria, or at least Greek Astoria, is played out, but somebody forgot to tell Athena, a big and ambitious new restaurant which just opened up there. Owned by Christos Christou, former executive chef and partner at Ammos Estiatorio in Manhattan, the place will feature regional Greek cookery, with some Macedonian and Cypriot dishes added in for good measure. For the most part, that means lovingly prepared seafood imported directly from Greece — check out the menu and see for yourself. On Fridays and Saturdays, there will be live Greek music and dancing, and come summer, plenty of outdoor seating. Greek Astoria: Still good times.
