Greek Seafood Fare at Akrotiri (Astoria, NY)

I am aware I don’t write much about Queens since I feel sometimes Manhattan or Brooklyn has a lot more interesting restaurants shaking up the food scene. But I’ve recently eaten at Akrotiri since I have friends who live nearby and thought might as well check out this Greek seafood restaurant. (more…)

Santorini by Georgios at Hilton Bentley Miami/South Beach (Miami, FL)

One of the relaxing (and very stomach fulfilling) days I have spent in Miami was at Santorini by Georgios at Hilton Bentley Miami/South Beach. We’ve explored Little Havana during the morning to check out the predominantly Cuban community and had fresh pressed sugar cane juice then drove down to South Beach for some sun time. Santorini by Georgios feels like a local Greek restaurant since it’s a family owned joint despite the fact it is in a boutique hotel. This not a bad thing at all since everyone greets and treats you like you are a friend or part of..

Excellent Creative Greek Dinner at Snack EOS

) Snack EOS is a new restaurant featuring modern Greek restaurant in Hell’s Kitchen, a few blocks away from Penn Station. This restaurant is by the same co-owners of Snack Taverna in West Village, Adam Greene and Dennis Chrysanthopoulos. This particular restaurant is almost a month old but the kitchen and front of the house worked like a well-oiled, experienced machine. The food was phenomenal and the wait staff knew their stuff. The interior felt cozy yet modern with the warm wood and clean lines. We started with a glass of Domaine Spiropulos “Red Stag”, Agiorgitiko, 2012 ($9), a Greek..

Estiatorio Milos in Las Vegas: Bargain of a Lunch

The Cosmopolitan’s crystal draped lobby; Milo’s menu cover I read around the food forums, namely Chowhound Las Vegas raved about Estiatorio Milos‘s (commonly known as Milos) Business Lunch prix fixe deal. I know there is a Milos in my neck of the woods of New York City but the Vegas location is inexpensive if you compared to both. Beyond that, it’s quite a steal for eating in an upscale restaurant on the main Strip for $25 and change (including Vegas sales tax and 20% tip). My little tiff would be the uneven service, which I’ll explain later. (more…)

Awesome Haute Greek at Kefi

I remember reading from NY Magazine’s review about Kefi and put their name on my lengthy “Must Try” restaurants list. Somehow, that list was forgotten and banished to the dark, hidden corners of my mind. Even hanging out with a friend of mine over the course of the year who has mentioned Kefi nearly ten times, telling me how great this place is. I still haven’t went there. Until several Fridays ago. PEOPLE…Namely, my friends I invited eight friends (of the group, Jess and Robyn were the only ones with blog/sites). Since it was during the prime dinner hour (we..

The Irony of It All…(Restaurant Week at Anthos) and a few announcements

On Thursday, I had my last Restaurant Week meal at Anthos with Ariel. This pretty much sums up my international food trek of sorts since I started with Indian, French, and now Greek (all nouveau style). I did have hopes of being captivated by Chef Psilakis’ food since Ariel went to Kefi, Psilakis’ other Greek restaurant, numerous times and been blown away by his food. Did Anthos make me happy or just left me feeling disgusted? If you want to find out, just read on… Lots of people… (more…)
