Chef Sabry knows his seafood. If you have any doubts, he’ll likely be standing by at his namesake Astoria seafood house to help you pick a fresh fish right off the ice before whisking it away to the kitchen and returning with your new favorite plate of seafood. This restaurant isn’t particularly formal, but the plates of Egyptian-spiced sardines and octopus feel luxurious, and we highly recommend stopping by for a fun group meal or family celebration. Go big and get the seafood combo for two, a great value that includes fish, squid, shrimp, scallops, and a whole lobster you can choose yourself from the tank. You also need to order a whole grilled sea bass or branzino. No one does a whole fish like Sabry’s. The fish will arrive at your table flaky and charred, and all you'll need to do is squeeze a generous amount of lemon onto it and pretend you don’t notice a proud Sabry checking to see your reaction from across the room.
