The streets of Astoria are lined with Greek restaurants, but none is more popular or renowned than Taverna Kyclades, which serves plates of some of the best grilled seafood you’ll eat this far from the Aegean. The smoky, tender grilled octopus is a must, as are the plates of crisp fried calamari and smelts. Round out the meal with other mezze—dips like tzatziki, skordalia, and taramosalata, or gigantes (large white beans in tomato sauce)—and an entrée of whole grilled sea bass or red snapper served with lemon potatoes. Insider tip: Taverna Kyclades does not take reservations and the wait for a table can be long, so go on a weekday or for an early dinner.
