Posidonio - Will it Last?

Posidonio - 33-12 36th Avenue, Astoria NY 11106
N/W Train to 36th Avenue

Many of you probably recognize the facade on this "new" Greek eatery on 33rd Street and 36th Avenue. That's because the building stays the same but the name of the restaurant keeps changing often - as in every couple of months. The space has seen a plethora of Greek establishments from Athena to Matrix to g-d knows what. The newest iteration is called Posidonio and I'm curious about how long it will last. The sign is slightly scary and domineering, with a half naked Greek god showing a helpless ship who's boss. Anywho, I looked at the menu and wanted to give you a preview:
