This is some of the best Greek food in Astoria - and since there are so many great Greek spots in the neighborhood, that’s saying something. Telly’s Taverna has about as many options for grilled whole fish as there are birthday cards in CVS categorized as “funny birthday.” But unlike a card with a glittery sloth on it, you’ll actually want to spend money on these fish. Pick your favorite (if you need a visual, they’re all sitting on ice in the front of the restaurant) and then get some grilled or fried vegetables and spanakopita. The amount of tables at Telly’s is infinite, and they even have some nice sidewalk seating and an enclosed garden in the back.
