The Sinanaj brothers after having worked at Peter Luger’s for several years, are now poised to building their own steakhouse legacy. Empire Steak House now has an Eastside location adding on to the midtown west counterpart.

Christos Steak House in Astoria is a great spot for steak and more. Paying homage to its neighborhood, the talented Chef Mina Newman offers signature Greek appetizers and sides to go with an extensive selection of prime-aged meats and seafood.
The style of dishes served is very classic. The menu is rather extensive with many options, which is rather unusual for a steakhouse. I really enjoyed the grilled shrimp, seared scallop and the Christos salad as appetizers. The Lobster mashed potatoes is a huge favorite and comes loaded with chunks of lobster meat.
The service and ambiance at Christos is very pleasant. It’s no wonder that it is a local favorite in Queens.
Here is some of what we ate:
Balsamic Roasted Figs
Almond Crusted Goat Cheese and Endive Salad
Surf and Turf
Broccoli Rabe with Roasted Garlic
