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?
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.
Taverna Kyclades (Greek) on Ditmars Boulevard (end of the N Line) is terrific and extremely reasonably priced. I went there with a large crowd a while ago and we were amazed at the quality and the tiny check at the end.
