It’s hard to tell if the standards at this long-standing institution of all food Greek have dropped considerably or if the offerings across the river have dramatically raised customer expectations. Dolmades are bland and forgettable, and a sampler of tzatziki, tarama, melitzanosalata and scordalia is few steps up from deli-counter grade. Seafood, like excellent marinated octopus and meaty swordfish, is more deserving of praise, but you’ll find better mousaka at just about any Greek-run diner in the Northeast—the dry ground beef here is certainly not helped by its thick veneer of overcooked bechamel, both of which suggest that time-honored cooking method known as the heat lamp. Good thing tourists can’t find their way to Queens, or Uncle Nick could find himself crying...uncle.
