When people think of Greek food in NYC, they often think of Taverna Kyclades—and with good reason. The food at the classic Astoria restaurant is—*puts fingers to lips*—chef’s-kiss worthy. But its no-reservations policy can also mean truly long wait times. Thankfully, Astoria is brimming with authentic Greek cuisine and there are plenty of equally delicious spots just a few blocks away. Impress your dinner dates with insider knowledge and grab a seat at one of these tables. You’ll be dipping pita in homemade tzatziki in no time.
