I tried adding this to the Astoria thread, but that seems to be broken.

 

We had a terrific lunch there yesterday.  The downside -- I stood in the pouring rain trying to figure out why the parking meeting gizmo wasn't in service until someone passing by pointed out that it was Sunday.  

 

The stuffed sole was surprisingly good.  Good kebabs (although we should have stuck with another fish.) 

 

Lots of fun.  The management was even a little accommodating to a 3-foot tall monster running around saying hello to everyone.  I almost had a deal with the nice couple at the next table for them to take the Pebble for a week, but my Wife refused.

I remember a fun dinner outside one summer evening, but it was several years ago.

You know there’s a 2nd location in the E.Village on 1st Ave around E.12th St, right?

Yes, but I figured that would be filled with East Village people.

No, they go to Astoria to eat.

The east village one is much easier to get a table at usually. I think its mostly fine.

Seriously, overall Id rather go to the Astoria location. The menu is somewhat larger & the outdoor area is more fun. But, just before we left for Florida we went to the E. Village location with some friends & I thought the food was as good. And the bar area added a nice touch to just hang around before and after. Neither location is more than a decent place to get fresh fish with Greek apps and sides, but thats not a bad option to have.

I never associated the EV one with the Astoria one. Despite the name.

Interestingly, the only mention of the EV location on the website is its address at the very bottom of the homepage in teeny type.

We had dinner at the EV spot right after it opened in 2013. It was slammed and we had to wait quite a while for a table. Having never been to the Astoria flagship, I cant compare. While I thought the food was o.k., considering the raves re: Astoria, I expected it to be much better. If they took reservations, I might have considered trying it again.

The Astoria location, in summer at least, has the fun of dining out on the closest thing Queens has to a terrace.  That aspect can't be reproduced on First Avenue.

There's a drop down menu on top (at least in the desktop version of the site) with details on their three locations.

Ah, yes! I see it now. It’s on hand held versions as well. I think I missed it because I was looking at it on my iPad and somehow managed not to have the page scrolled all the way up to the top.
