Well for $14.99, you can get a salad or soup, a side dish, and then pick from any shrimp dish that you’d like – garlic shrimp scampi, breaded shrimp, [...]
My friend Tom and I love lobster. So much so that we’ve tried several lobster rolls around this fine city. When I saw a Groupon for $39 to Psari in Astoria that included two lobster deals, with two sides, two soups/salads and two drinks, I instant messaged Tom and let him know that our [...]
