Taverna Kyclades

We came back into the city this past Sunday from the end of Long Island.  You never know how bad the traffic will be.  We decided that we should stop in Queens and have dinner so break up the trip.  We used Waze and it took us through the start of Long Island into Queens.  I always love driving through different areas of NY.  We first drove through Italy and then made our way into India.  You know you are back in NYC when the restaurant is filled with people from every single country around the globe.  It is what makes this city so amazing.

Taverna Kyclades was packed.  People waited outside in line for awhile before a seat was available.  Classic Greek restaurant.  I admit we order the same thing every time we go to a Greek restaurant so having a menu is almost pointless.  The place is worth the trip.

    I love grilled octopus. Santorini in Chicago does it in a wood fired oven. The photo you posted makes it look delicious-interesting touch with the cucumber. Assuming it was lathered with olive oil, lemon and oregano?

    A nice slice of Galaktoboureko beats traffic any day. Kali Orexi!
