If you put Agnanti Meze on the Lower East Side, there would be a line to get in every single night. That’s how good the food here is. Fortunately for you, this place is in Astoria, where there’s an abundance of quality Greek food - and you could probably stop by and get a table right now. This place serves some of the best grilled octopus in the neighborhood, and they also make some very good dips and a bunch of things wrapped in puff pastry that you’ll think about while you lie awake at night. We also highly recommend the moussaka if it’s available, and you should probably drink several glasses of the $7 house wine. Bring a date or a big group, and go for a walk through Astoria Park (across the street) afterward.
