Parents Coming to Astoria for Dinner - Narrowing Down Options

brappnyc | Feb 22, 2010 07:38 AM

Hi all,
I know Astoria gets done to death here, but I'm trying to narrow down my options for when my parents come up for dinner in a few weeks. The preferences are as follows: casual but not divey, no Indian, Chinese, or Italian. I'm thinking of sticking with Brazilian or Greek, maybe Bosnian, since it's different than things they normally get. If anyone can help me decide, that would be great!

1) Brazilian - Malagueta vs Favela?

2) Greek - Kyclades vs Zenon vs Philoxenia?

3) Dark horses - Cevabdzinica Sarajevo, Mundo,

What are peoples' thoughts on these choices? I'd love to narrow it down to 2 or 3 to give my parents choices. Any place I haven't mentioned that you think would be perfect to showcase the culinary diversity of Astoria?

Thanks a lot, all!
