Akrotiri is yet another excellent Greek restaurant in Astoria, and it’s perfect for a date or a nice meal with a few people who don’t mind spending around $50 per person on dinner. It’s a little more upscale than some of the other spots in the area, and the menu has a bunch of things like lobster pasta, truffled squid ink taramasalata, and a saganaki with quinoa and tiger shrimp. But we prefer the more traditional items like the various types of whole fish, the sliced octopus over black eyed peas, and the grilled Greek sausage that’s just about perfect once you squeeze some lemon over it.
