You sometimes hear that Astoria, or at least Greek Astoria, is played out, but somebody forgot to tell Athena, a big and ambitious restaurant which opened up there in March 2007. Owned by Christos Christou, former executive chef and partner at Ammos Estiatorio in Manhattan, the place features regional Greek cookery, with some Macedonian and Cypriot dishes added in for good measure. For the most part, that means lovingly prepared seafood imported directly from Greece. On Fridays and Saturdays, there's live Greek music and dancing, and come summer, plenty of outdoor seating. Greek Astoria: Still good times.
