Was driving in there today and saw this new greek restaurant back by Lucky Budda...has anyone been? THere was no menu up but looked nice, and open, casual with the blue and white check tablecloths...If its good, it would be a nice addition!

    Is it open already? I went by a week ago and it was still closed. It would be a good addition to the area.

        The menu looks a lot like Santorini's (which will probably work in its favor). Are they related?

          Gonna try it out tonight... NY Times notice was pretty good. I'm on a diet, so will be sticking mostly with veggies and such, but will be sure to taste what my buddies order and report back!

        We like it. It's warm and friendly and there's something for the whole family on the menu. The food may be a cut below Santorini, but the good service compensates for that. Plus it's huge, so there's never a problem getting a table.

          Is the food all house made (i.e. taramasalata, other dips)? Pictures on the website look a little cafeteria-ish, how is the ambiance? Do they serve wine? Thanks!

            I don't know if it's all house made, but it certainly feels like it! (Except I read that the pastries come from Titan, in Astoria.)

            The place is large and uncrowded, with booths around the edges of the room and tables in the middle. The colors are the typical blue and white of most Greek restaurant. It's not a diner by any means but it's definitely not formal either. The mood is friendly and relaxed, unpretentious. The waiters and managers are super nice and efficient.

            Yes, they serve wine.

              Thank you! Don't know how I missed the Times review--looks like a definite try soon!
