Akti Seafood Restaurant

Monday, March 15, 2010

Now that we live in Long Island City, we’re sure to be exploring Astoria more. The funny thing is, Lon and I both lived in Astoria for a short time before, but that was over 10 years ago. A lot has changed, expanded, and diversified. Still, one of the biggest draws is the abundance of […]

Kefi: Bigger and Better

Saturday, January 9, 2010

We went to
Kefi 505 Columbus Avenue, New York, NY 10024 in their new space; we went to the original in 2007.  Even though we loved the food the first time, it was uncomfortable to sit so tightly jammed between strangers. Now, on Columbus Ave, it’s a lot more roomy, but still […]

Kefi has Moved

Friday, January 23, 2009

Kefi, a restaurant I do recommend, has moved to 505 Columbus Avenue (at 84th Street). Now that it’s so much bigger, you won’t feel as squished and they are now accepting credit cards. I’ve got my fingers crossed that they maintain the quality while prices stay the same.

Friday, January 9, 2009

We were excited for our big Greek feast at Zenon Taverna Zenon Taverna, after hearing about the Mezedes (meals) they offer. The Cyprus (or meat) Meze is $18.95 per person and the Fish Meze is $21.95 per person. We went with Sarah and Tim, so we got both (two of us Cyprus, two of us […]

Santorini, Greece

Tuesday, June 17, 2008

BreakfastBreakfast was standard. Lon ate another one of those chocolate almond pastries but I resisted the platter of donuts.
Getting LostSantorini was by far my favorite stop, which is no surprise. Everyone raves about it and it is truly wonderful. Our boat anchored out in the water. We boarded tenders to get to shore, […]

Rhodes, Greece

Monday, June 16, 2008

Nothing interesting about the buffet breakfast today.
Rhodes is also very touristy, but at least there’s more to see than just stores. We walked through the Palace of the Grand Masters, which exhibits ancient jugs, bowls, jewelry, etc. within beautiful stone and marble walls. We took plenty of great photos before looking for lunch, where […]

Kusadasi, Turkey

Friday, June 13, 2008

I was excited to see an interesting variety of quiches at the buffet this morning. Unfortunately, they were ice cold, just pulled from the fridge. I couldn’t eat it and I really wanted to. There were flavors like mushroom leek, artichoke goat cheese, sausage and potato, etc. Too bad…

Shopping and Apple Tea
Kusadasi is known for […]

Mykonos, Greece

Thursday, June 12, 2008

BreakfastWe’re about half way through the cruise and we’re starting to feel full just about 24 hours a day. We actually wake up still full from the day before so we managed to avoid the donuts at the buffet this morning.
LunchMykonos was really cute, although again very touristy. I loved the white buildings, the famous […]

Athens, Greece

Wednesday, June 11, 2008

BreakfastWe went to the buffet for breakfast again, mostly the same old stuff so I didn’t bother taking pictures. We had the lemon almond pastry today (they do seem to serve different flavors daily) which was very good.
LunchThe ship parks in Piraeus so we had to take the train into Athens, where we walked around […]

Katakolon, Greece

Tuesday, June 10, 2008

BreakfastWe had time for a leisurely breakfast in the dining room, which started with more donuts, still the best part of breakfast on the boat. I had a sugar donut, Lon had a chocolate almond pastry, and we shared a pretty good blueberry muffin. The Mushroom Fritatta was over-cooked, while the cheese on top was […]
