Syrup-Soaked Cakes Worth Seeking Out at Titan Foods in Astoria

New York Max Falkowitz 7 comments

Even some loyal shoppers tend to ignore the bakery counter at Titan Foods, which is a shame, as this must-visit Greek market makes some of the best sweets in the neighborhood.

MP Taverna: Not Your Average Astoria Greek Restaurant

New York Max Falkowitz 6 comments

In interviews, Michael Psilakis has made clear that MP Taverna, his casual restaurant brand now in Astoria, features a more visceral, less cerebral approach to Greek food. That doesn't mean the menu is dumbed down or made less "ethnic." It means you're happy that the kitchen is generous with that pita, because those stray licks of olive oil on the plate won't finish themselves. More

The Food Lab Turbo: Easy Grilled Cornish Hens and Zucchini with Lemon-Oregano Marinade, Tzatziki, and Greek Salad

The Food Lab J. Kenji López-Alt 7 comments

Last year I went into some pretty extensive detail about how to grill chickens for optimum crisp skin, grilled flavor, and tender, juicy, evenly cooked meat. The key? Butterflying (aka spatchcocking). It's a simple technique that lets you to cook your chicken flat, allowing rendering fat to drip out and providing the best path toward crispy skin. Want to make things even easier? Do what I do during the summer: grill Cornish hens instead of chickens. They're small enough to make an individual serving, not to mention extremely tender and juicy, with a very mild, delicate flavor. More
