In the shadow of the Kaufman Astoria Studios and a little off the beaten path, S'Agapo is our fave among the Astorian Greeks, recently confirmed by a meal that featured a special of Macedonian-style roast pork-huge gobbets of oink well-marbled with fat and bathed in drippings alive with subtle flavor. Good too was a red snapper done "savori"-rubbed with fresh tomato and braised in a wine-and-citrus marinade. In spite of an excellent grilled octopus, the best starter is a zingy puree of roasted red peppers and garlic that goes great on the crusty bread.
