Anassa Taverna Astoria


Anassa Taverna Astoria


Cuisine: Greek, Mediterranean, Family Friendly

Summary:

Named after the ancient Greek queen of the Mediterranean, Anassa Taverna in Astoria is a jewel of a restaurant where diners can expect the “royal treatment.” Setting the mood, an elegant space with towering chandeliers, exposed wooden beams and floor-to-ceiling windows. The sleek bar with natural wood top and aqua blue seating offers the perfect spot for a cocktail, like the Athena (Espolon Reposado, Ginger, Blood Orange, Fresh Lime) and the Callas (Lemon Infused Vodka, Lavender tea, Cucumber Juice, Mint). The menu also brings a splash of the Mediterranean with fresh whole fish flown in daily, including pink snapper, black sea bass, dorado and branzino. Dips and small plates are also offered, like grilled Octopus with fava and capers; Spanakopita with spinach, leeks and feta in phyllo; and grilled traditional Greek sausage. Larger plates include swordfish kebabs, marinated lamb chops, grilled organic chicken and lobster spaghetti for two with a signature tomato sauce topped with myzithra cheese. Anassa Taverna is a destination for anyone seeking a fine dining experience. >>
