There are two relatively new places that opened on 30th Ave.
The first is Akti, a new Greek place near 34th Ave. The design is nice, typically overdone for the area (ie. the waterfall probably isn't necessary). The servers were nice, helpful and cute-- which never hurts. We started with a salad that was terrific, brightly colored veggies, yellow peppers, ripe tomatoes, delicious feta etc. Next we had the tzatziki with little fried zucchini chips-- the sweet zucchini was perfect with the cool garlicky dip. We also had haloumi which was fantastic, not gummy and grilled with tomato (also grilled) on top. They brought us a complimentary moussaka, which was good, though it's not something I order so I can't really comment on it. We shared a grilled Tilapia and grilled shrimp-- both well cooked. We got a side of grilled asaparagus and dadelion greens. The only thing that was less than great were the greens that were too bitter and over-cooked. Overall, I highly recommend this place!
The other new place I tried recently was Zabb Thai. I've been a few times and can't remember exactly what I had. I will say that although there wok sautes were a little bland (I haven't tried the curries) their salads are fantastic. I've tried the crispy duck as well as the one with shrimp, ground pork and rice noodles [sorry for the lack of names, it was a couple weeks ago and I don't have the menu in front of me]. I found their food/menu to be more interesting then a lot of the other Thai places in the area. Also, I highly recommend this place as well, especially the salads.
Would love to hear other peoples experiences here. Any other new games in town?
