Cypriot-Style Bites, Lots of Them, at Astoria’s Kopiaste

The small plates just keep on coming at Kopiaste, whose Cyprus Meze combo is a 17-course parade of tasty kebabs, spreads, salads, and more, bargain-priced at $22 for two diners. It's a carnivore-friendly feast—at least half the dishes are nonvegetarian, including knockout house-made pork sausage—though the kitchen will sub out some of the meat courses if you ask. Gastronomos writes on Chowhound that the robust flavors at this year-old restaurant offer a clear contrast to the plainer fare of its Greek neighbors in Astoria, Queens—"really a welcome change."
