Christos Steakhouse questions
Has anyone been there since the renovation? I'm also curious about the lounge... Full bar? a nice place to have a drink before dinner? As is occasionally noted, it's far from a given in Queens that you can combine a place to have a cocktail and a nice dinner...
Actually, I think it's quite different...more standard and therefore bland.
meats are great as before but with the intrusion of a "food/restaurant consultant" they have chosen to forgo the unique Greek aspects of the menu that made it unusual for a top steak place. It also seemed a shame to change a number of wait staff.
After trying it several times after the reno, it's been months since we've been back again. To me it's lost it's personality.
I've been there. It's not that different than before, the bar area is extended, if I recall correctly.
The main difference is that they don't let you smoke in the back room anymore....It's a sad time when Astoria starts following the smoking ban laws, but it's happened to the best of them.
You have to ask specifically for that yummy apple crumb dessert, I don't think it's on the menu anymore. Basically the same place as before with some minor revisions.
