There’s something about the old-school, decadent way the food is presented at Christos that makes you feel like you’re eating a meal fit for a villain—a robber baron, perhaps. But you don’t have to feel too bad about it, because you’re (probably) not an oil tycoon. You’re just someone treating yourself to lobster mashed potatoes served in a whole, cracked open lobster shell at a low-key steakhouse in Queens.

Christos Steakhouse review image

Christos leans Greek, which means you can (and should) get a fried saganaki appetizer, juicy loukaniko sausage, and a huge Greek salad with your meal, in addition to more traditional sides like mac and cheese and creamed spinach. It also means that the steaks come out with a distinctly Greek seasoning that takes over even when you put their bacon-bourbon steak sauce on top. This definitely isn’t a bad thing, but if you’re looking for hardcore, uninterrupted beef flavor, you may want to go elsewhere. 

If there were even more Greek-influence on the menu, this place would be a bit more memorable. But Christos is a solid steakhouse for the area, and eating buttery mashed potatoes out of that cartoonish lobster shell never gets old. Just don’t let them seat you at the table right next to the lobster tank. Then you’ll really feel like a villain.

Old Homestead Steakhouse

Old Homestead has been around since 1868, and this steakhouse on the Meatpacking/Chelsea border still serves some of the best steaks in the city.
