Gregory's 26 Corner Taverna

26-02 23rd Ave (at 26 st)

Astoria, NY 11105

A corner lot in Astoria aptly named Gregory's 26 Corner is the kind of Greek restaurant that inspires nostalgia for a prior New York: regulars gather at picnic-patterned tablecloths surrounded by beachy artwork under tin ceilings. Fisherman come straight to the restaurant with their hauls early in the morning. A partially open kitchen that looks like it belongs in the bottom of a ship and a large mural of Mykonos sets the mood for traditional delicacies with a seafood-focus: fried crab cakes, flash-fried smelts, a garlicky eggplant puree, whole fried porgy. Order extra tzatziki. A chandelier made of a ship's wheel hangs over you the entire experience, much like the hang over you'll have after too much Greek table wine.
