Steak Panini at Agora in Forest Hills

The photo only features half the sandwich as I was very hungry and couldn’t wait.

Steak Panini and Greek Fries in Forest Hills’ Agora. Its one of the newer establishments that I am actually pleased about. Agora is a greek restaurant but has a more of an Americanized feel to it. The decor is mainly white and light blue, reminiscent of the actual greek restaurants in Greece. For me, they’re a bit too pricy at dinner time but offer a great lunch menu and good deal on brunch for the area ($13.95 brunch including one drink). The atmosphere is bright and many people go there now including families and I feel that it has the ability to stand its ground and remain prominent for a long time in Forest Hills 🙂

A usual night in Forest Hills

Whenever I’m staying in Forest Hills, Queens, I usually never fail to make a weekly visit with a friend or two to Martha’s Bakery on Austin Street. The atmosphere is cozy, welcoming, and just makes you feel like you’re sort of in a country home with a splash of city. It’s become a staple in my list of places to go in Queens. I usually order one or two things but spend probably a couple of hours each time talking with friends. It gets very busy on the weekends but the good thing is you don’t have to feel worried. The space lets you relax and not have to worry about time. The only clock I saw in there was in parisian style hanging on the left corner, barely noticeable. The staff are friendly even though they might take a little while to get to you but overall my experiences there have been very satisfactory.

Usual order: Frappe and Very Berry Napoleon to share. (I first had a frappe when I studied for a month in Greece. It’s better than an ice coffee, creamier, more delightful if you’re really into sweet. So when I see it on the menu here I just can’t resist.)
