Friday night Kev and I headed out to Astoria, Queens to Christos Steakhouse. Kev brought his fancypants camera and kindly took all of the below photos
For my entree I went with the octopus salad
As a lover of the aforementioned gastropod I commonly order this dish at restaurants. This was, hands down, one of the top iterations I’ve ever sampled.The acerbic dressing and briny capers nicely complimented the humble octopus.
Kev went the carnivorous route and selected the 24oz rib-eye
To accompany our entrees we shared the lobster mashed potatoes.
Despite our increasing stomach saturation, we forged ahead to dessert.
After the meal we had the special privilege of viewing the (immaculate) kitchen and meat locker, kept at a precise temperature to facilitate the aging process.
The locker contained various cuts of meat all delicately aging.
It was interesting to see the systematic process that fosters such fine meat.
We had such a nice time at Christos and would definitely recommend checking it out. The expansive menu can easily satisfy both carnivore and non-meat eater alike.
In accordance with FTC guidelines I must disclose that Christos contacted me directly and provided our entire meal gratis (a HUGE thank you to them!). Any views expressed on my blog, however, remain as unbiased as humanely possible.
