Zenon Taverna

Zenon Taverna is an old school real deal food joint in the heart of Greek Astoria. It boast white washed walls and plaques transporting you to Greece/Cyprus. They offer some of the standard fare plus enormus meze platters for two that are a feast fit for a Greek God. Two of us had the Seafood Meze for $23.95 each. Fourteen dishes in all. Skordalia, taramosalada, Greek and Cypriot salads....and more meze. Olive and pita are on the table for dipping. Then comes the seafood- salmon, octopus, grilled squid, fried calamari- all expertly cooked. Our friends lamb chops were enormus cooked medium rare to perfection. This is a fun spot for a group where the management cares deeply about the food they serve.
