Today I’m posting another Eat, Travel and Love TOP 5 - this time Greek restaurants in Astoria.
If you follow me on Instagram @eat_travel_andlove you already know that I’m CRAZY about Greek food. Living in a Greek neighborhood makes life pretty convenient when I want to eat Greek!
Astoria is definitely the place to go if you’re looking for the best Greek food outside of Greece. Even my husband who had been to Greece before says that the food here is very comparable. We’ve been to many different Greek restaurants since living here, so here are a few of my favorite Greek spots in Astoria.
Having an Italian husband by my side, you can imagine how much Italian food I’ve been eating since we met, right?! Haha. We eat Italian food at least once a week, and I’ve been eating at many delicious places with traditional “nona” food, but also some serving contemporary Italian cuisine. It’s very difficult to make a list with only five of my favorite Italian restaurants, but here are the places where I really loved the food and want people to check out.
Time to talk about which steak is King of NY!
New York City is known for its classic, high quality steakhouses offering some of the most delicious cuts of beef you can find. While NYC has its fare share of “white tablecloth” steakhouses, there are plenty of new age steakhouses springing up challenging that status quo and gaining a lot of attention. Below are my reviews for the steakhouses I have been to so far, many recognizable restaurants that typically appear on “best steakhouses of NYC”, although I have plenty more to try.
You can get a taste of Italy right here in NYC at Eataly! Part supermarket, part restaurant, Eataly’s first floor sells a variety of different foods straight from Italy (think pastas, sauces, coffee, chocolate, sauces, etc.), while its multiple sit down restaurants (5 altogether) specialize in delicious pizza, fresh pasta, fish, and meats. It was my first time going there and I was pleasantly surprised by how great everything was.
I had so much fun writing this post for a very simple reason: I LOVE PIZZA!!!! (if you’re reading this, I’m sure you love pizza too).
New York is the perfect place to try all different kinds of pizza, that come in all shapes and sizes. I’ve never been to Italy, but people I know say that NY pizza is almost as good as the pizza in Italy (to each his own). Every borough has tons of pizza shops all with a different style or price point. For example, you will notice a lot of $1 slice spots in Manhattan (not very good, but cheap).
Below is a list of places that are worth the visit:
