Psari Seafood Restaurant in Long Island City, NY- Extremely Fresh Seafood, Pleasing Oysters and Clams

Psari in Long Island City is a Greek seafood restaurant that offers fresh seafood and an open atmosphere. I sat at a bar with a friend for his birthday celebration. The experience is excellent until we got to the Red Snapper. This is going to be mostly a visual post because the photos will speak for the food. #FreshSeafood

Garlic Bread: On a scale of 1 to 10, this was a 5.

Mango Martini: Ketel One Vodka, mango liqueur, clear curacao, splash of lime juice. It’s an 8.

1/2 Dozen of Raw Blue Point Oysters and 1/2 Dozen of Raw Clams. This is heaven on ice.  Why Then World’s Mine Oyster,” William Shakespeare. Ten. Ten. Ten.

The aftermath of the oysters and clams. Would like more, please!

Grilled Octopus: This was a 10 for this preparation.

Shrimp Bisque: A 6.  It needed spice.

Smelts/Atherina (”Fish Fries”): Cute.  But it’s only a 6.

Horta: This is the Greek version of the greens, leafy and kale like. It’s a 7.

Red Snapper: Grilled and prepared with olive oil & fresh lemon juice. This market price was in the $20s for a 1.5 pound whole fish. It was tasteless.  The fish was fresh – you cannot fault that.  But why wouldn’t they put some salt on?

Lemon Potatoes: starchy and palatable. A 7.

Definitely recommend. The seafood is extremely fresh. You just have to figure out how to pick the right fish. Should have gone with the Bronzino or the Porgy.

  1. Absolutely a fantastic experience. The oysters and clams were fresh and succulent …. the octopus was a 6 only because it’s a new dish, and texture… even the beer was heavenly!!! We sat outside and kids were running around… even the server “Stella” was great. This was a great Greek experience!!! 🍻😊❤️
