Markos’ Top 4 Greek restaurants in Queens and Long Island
- GreeKrave is a gem in Deerk Park, Long Island. It is the Greek version of Chipotle. They’re philosophy is simple: “Eat Greek, Live Long.” I reviewed it here last year. Check it out! Put Long Island’s GreeKrave on your list

- Kalamaki is one of the best Greek restaurants in Queens. Recognized in the 2015 Best of the Boro awards by The Queens Courier, Kalamaki was named “Best Greek Restaurant” and “Best Gyro”, and rightfully so.
- Maria’s Mediterranean Seafood & Grill is the top-notch Greek restaurant on Bell Boulevard in Bayside, NY, which is the epitome of “homemade Greek food.”
- Neraki Greek Meditteranean Grill is definitely one of the best Greek restaurants on Long Island. It won “Best Greek Restaurant” for two years in a row by the “Best of Long Island” Press in 2014 and 2015 respectively. Most recently, Neraki celebrated its five year anniversary, and hopefully, many more to come.
