Whenever we need help sleeping, we just think of Pi Bakerie’s spiral-shaped spanakopita pastries. This is a Greek counter-service spot from the same owners of another Greek bakery in Astoria we really like (Artopolis Bakery). You could have a sit-down meal here during the day, or just stop by and get a pastry. Try the spanakopita, some grape leaves, and a great, massive square of meaty moussaka.
