Another Yummy Time at Psari

Last week, Meg, Mackenzi and I visited one of the best underrated Greek food restaurant in Astoria, Psari. Previously known as the Greek Captain, Psari specializes in seafood and they've recently announced a Seafood Feast Special on Groupon, which I think I saw a few folks taking advantage of.

While we ordered a nice selection of their dips that were also veggie friendly, we each got our own entree and mine was the fish.  After all, when in a seafood restaurant...

Broiled Porgy - A good alternative to grouper or red snapper, I chose a broiled porgy as my choice for dinner.  I've had this fish before at local Greek joints, and enjoy its flaky texture and buttery taste.  For those of you who like a milder fish, this may not be for you, as the sea flavor is pretty distinct, but I think in a good way.  I absolutely loved its crispy, slightly burnt skin, which I devoured and dotted with some of the leftover spreads like the the tzatziki, which we still had on the table.  My side that I chose along with it were the lemon baked potatoes that did a good job of rounding out the dish and making the meal more filling.

Galaktoboureko - A complimentary dessert, I enjoyed this little sweet bite, which was soaked in a sweet, syrupy liquid.  The portion was just right and allowed for about 3 solid bites.  The inside, consisting of a creamy, lemony custard was soft and luxurious, while the outside was a little flaky from the phyllo that crumbled at the contact of your fork.

Service and Cost:

Just like last time, the service was quite good and so attentive.  Once again, I was impressed by how quickly our glasses of water were filled and our empty plates were cleared.  I never felt as if we were forgotten about, and our dishes came out fast, which was great.

Costs are really fair - the porgy and the potato entree costing only $19, while the plate of dips was about $15.  As I already noted, the dessert was complimentary.
