hi. my husband and i will finally be having our wedding reception (15 months after the fact) and have decided we want to have it at a greek (seafood)restaurant in astoria. we spent our most romantic days and nights in greece for a year or so, and now want to celebrate that culture and food with our friends and family.
we are big fans of grilled octopus and fish and want to find a restaurant that will let us rent them out for a saturday night in september, preferably with an outdoor space. but the food is the highest priority obviously.
in a word, we'd like elias corner in the good old days, when the food was great and the service attentive. does anything like that exist now? we promise we will not ruin it with mobs of unwashed manhattanites.
help! your expertise and advice is appreciated!
