Pix from Ovelia, a Modern Greek Restaurant in Astoria
This week, Counter Culture triremes into Ovelia, a modernistic boite in Astoria that retains its ancient outlook. The portions are generous, the tariff light. Anything that comes with skordalia--the garlicky Greek potato dip--is fab, including grilled sand shark, zucchini fritters, and grilled eggplant. Stick with the traditional Greek dishes (including a wonderful homemade sausage called loukanika), and you'll have a great meal.
