New Balkan Restaurant in Astoria: Dino’s Bar & Restaurant
Chef Dino Redzic seems to change his restaurants’ names more often than hip-hop star P. Diddy (or was it Puff Daddy?) changes his. First there was Amici Amore Italian restaurant and then it was Momento Italian Bistro. Well this time he is not only changing the name to Dino’s Bar and Restaurant, but he is also changing the menu, expanding his Italian Mediterranean coast-line fare to the Montenegrin and Balkan regions. The dishes range from traditional Italian carpaccio manzo or Spaghetti with Meat Sauce to more unique Balkan grill plates like raznjici (veal shish kabob with onion and vegetables). Dino offers early bird specials $9.99 entrees 4pm-7pm, an extensive wine list and cooking classes once a month on Saturday (adults) & Sunday (children). They feature live Balkan music every Fri, Sat & Sun. Check out the website for deliciously appetizing photos of the food or just go in and try it!
