Loukoumi is further east than most places on this guide - it’s about halfway between LaGuardia Airport and most of the well-known Greek spots on Ditmars. Despite being off the beaten path, the Greek food here is worth the trip. They serve traditional dishes like souvlaki, but we like some of the lesser known dishes best and would come back again just for the sweetbreads. Share the sweetbreads and fried cheese and some affordable carafes of wine on the big backyard patio.

Trattoria L’icontro is not only awesome, but worthy of a trip to Astoria with a group of your friends. Everything about the space is thoroughly cheesy and overstated, but that’s kind of the whole point. No gimmicks, just really good Italian food and really nice people.
Astoria Seafood is a seafood market and restaurant where you pick your fish and tell them how you’d like it cooked.
Taverna Kyclades is a classic spot in Astoria for affordable family-style Greek food.
