If you’re looking for the kind of dinner where you can order too much food and drink too much wine, without spending too much money, consider Taverna Kyclades. This classic Astoria spot makes you feel like you’re being cooked for by the Greek aunt you never had, and everything is served family-style. You and your friends will share giant plates of fresh fish and lamb and potatoes, split affordable bottles of wine, and walk out stuffed and happy. If you don’t want to wait for a table, definitely get there early - the crowds know about this place. But they will give you free wine while you wait.

"NO MENUS. JUST FISH" is pretty much everything you need to know about this Astoria restaurant.
