Agora Taverna – Queens, NY


 

 

Swordfish

Opened in April 2011, Agora Taverna is a new Greek seafood restaurant on Austin Street in Forest Hills, Queens. People rarely come to Forest Hills for Mediterranean flavors as most would go to Astoria, famous for the large Greek population and the variety of Greek eateries. Now, the famed Astoria “fish place” Taverna Kyclades has held the trophy of being probably the best seafood restaurant in Queens, if not in New York. Having been to both restaurants, I’d say that dishes served at Agora and Taverna Kyclades are fairly similar, with identical flavor profiles that are buttery, lemony, and garnished with loads of herbs.

Grilled Clams – $10.95

The grilled Top Neck clams with olive oil and lemon sauce were absolutely delicious albeit a little pricey.

Black Sea Bass from N. Carolina – whole fish, deboned – $24.95

So far the best whole fish we’ve order is the Pampano (also $24.95)

lemon potatoes

Greek fries

All entrees come with a choice of Greek fries, lemon potatoes, rice, or horta.

swordfish – $23.95

Loukoumades – $6.95

oh-so-yummy

Loukoumades – Greek honey dumblings sprinkled with walnuts and cinnamon.

All in all, decent food, some dishes like the Greek fries and lemon potatoes are better than Taverna Kyclades. Do not order the seafood platter for 2 ($44.95), the sole filet we got was falling apart and too oily.

The place needs to improve its service; the servers can be slow and have occasional memory loss at times, like when I had to kept asking for the glass of sangria  I ordered that didn’t arrive till the entrees were served.

    Huey,This is a problem, because few coaches don’t make a different decision. Ideally we would compare what happens when a player with two fouls is left in to what happens when they are removed. If they are left in and they don’t tend to foul out, then pulling them is a bad idea. But to see that, you need some coaches to leave such players in.

    Terrific site and glad to see fencing going on in the Charleston area. I’m wondering if there any nrth area fencers or a meeting place planned up this way? I’m inSummerville but work in Hanahan so fencing in Goose Creek/N. Charleston would be nice.Regards,Chris
