It’s All Greek to Me: Stamatis

For my third post in this series on Greek restaurants in Astoria, I decided to go with one of the most eclaimed Greek restaurants in the area: Stamatis.

Located just a block from the subway, Stamatis is a well-known establishment with a casual, lively vibe. There’s a rather amusing, large photograph of the city skyline inside (reminiscent of a late night show). The menu has all the usual suspects. Tasty seafood options, tzatziki, souvlaki, and delicious saganaki. Unfortunately, they do not have haloumi (grilled goat cheese from Cyprus). To me, this is the single biggest drawback to the restaurant.

Stamatis is moving shortly, to a renovated building across the street. I’m not sure when this change is happening. Right now, Stamatis is still open for business at its original location. It’s a tasty spot, moderately priced (pricier than Anna’s Corner, cheaper than Mezzo Mezzo). A good dinner place, particularly for a group, as long as no one has an unhealthy obsession with haloumi.
