Christos Hasapa-Taverna in Astoria

Friends and I were looking for a place to eat steak the other night, and based on recommendations on this board, we gave Christos a try. We had a great meal there, and so I'm back to thank the tipsters and second the recommendation. As advertised, the porterhouse there really is phenomenal, and a relative bargain. My friend actually rated it higher than Luger's, and while many might consider that an extreme view, I'd say it's in the general ballpark. Everything else was good too, and the service was great.
One question: I noticed that the Times' Eric Asimov wrote in his review that the T-bone is superior to the porterhouse. Does anyone second this opinion? To me, that porterhouse would be awfully hard to beat.
