MP Taverna is super star Greek Chef Michael Psilakis’s ode to a modern version of a Greek tavern.

With several outposts of this concept in Long Island, Irvington and so on, MP Taverna offers a menu that helps bridge the gap between Greek food and the American palate.

The menu stays true to its Greek roots and is a collection of Psilakis’s favorites recipes amassed over his cooking career. MP Taverna is definitely much more modern both in concept and is look than its other Astoria counterparts.

They have a huge emphasis on the bar which really comes alive in the evenings. All the dishes we tried were very good – the “Grilled Branzino” was especially well done.

I would recommend MP Taverna to anyone looking for an upscale Greek dining experience but somehow for me – it just didn’t endear itself to my soul. I still prefer the more local places in Astoria.
