Brunch/Lunch in Astoria...HELP!!
This Sunday about 7-10 out of towners and myself will be in Long Island City/ Astoria and I'm not formiliar wih the area or menus. We're looking for someplace casual, moderately priced, not crowded, vegetarian friendly, and preferably greek. I've heard good things about Omonia Cafe and Agnanti Meze, but I can't find menus.
Are these good places? Any other recommendations?
I'm a big fan of Brick Cafe on 33rd St & 31st Ave. It fits all of your criteria (except I'm not sure how crowded it gets later during the day) The weather should be nice and there is plenty of outdoor seating. A link to the brunch menu:
Omonia does serve food, but in my opinion it's a place to go for dessert and coffee. I love Agnanti and it's usually great to be outdoors next to the park. However, it's supposed to be about 87° by noon on Sunday so outdoor dining might not be so pleasant. I'm planning to go to Astoria for supper on Sunday, and my dining companions have suggested trying Akti, a relatively new place. I see mixed reviews here, but it might be cooler. Actually, any place is probably likely to be crowded for lunch on Sunday. You might want to make a reservation.
