Venue Info

Whole fish, grilled and plated, is the reason to go to Telly's Taverna in Astoria, an airy Greek restaurant with Mediterranean currents. Catches come fresh from Fulton Fish Market, and the selection fluctuates with the market, with striped bass, red snapped, barbounia, and sargos rotating on offer. The staff will gladly debone your choice, but the fish are best when fully intact, and lightly dressed with lemon.Order the sardines fried to start and don't skip tzatziki. A jolt from Greek coffee is the only way to finish, after the complimentary honey-dipped loukoumades (dough balls) on weeknights, that is.
