Telly’s Taverna in Astoria, New York, gives its patrons a taste of the Greek and Mediterranean cuisine. HNA’s Markos Papadatos has the scoop.

Particularly impressive about their meals is that they use recipes directly from their family cookbooks. Their seafood stands out thanks to its ingredients, freshness, and flavors.

Other noteworthy Greek favorites include saganaki, Taramosalta (fish roe salad), skordalia (garlip dip), and whole fish including snapper, sea bass, and spearings; moreover, they grill lamb chops, rib-eye steaks, chicken souvlaki, spiced burgers, octopus, salmon, and swordfish.

Speaking of their octopus, it is soft and tender. The same holds true for their calamari (which can come either grilled or fried), and flounder fillet, both of which are quite crispy.
