FAVORITE ASTORIA RESTAURANT IL BAMBINO: There are a lot of Panini to choose from, but don’t miss the mozzarella, tomato, and basil panino. It’s the sandwich that first brought Il Bambino it’s well-deserved notoriety. Also try the green bean salad, which has been on the menu since the start (for good reasons.) THE POMEROY: This comfort food staple JUST introduced brunch, proof that their fried chicken should be enjoyed all day long. VESTA: Don’t miss their signature dessert, the Baby Jesus cake.

FAVORITE GREEK RESTAURANT MP TAVERNA: Try the smashed fries! They’ve got some of the best in Astoria. Also their octopus with chickpea salad is one of our favorite dishes in the neighborhood! ZENON TAVERNA: Their vegan dishes during Orthodox Lent are excellent.

FAVORITE MEXICAN RESTAURANT CHELA Y GARNACHA: Always (always) get the grilled cheese with your taco. It takes everything up a notch. DE MOLE: Vegetarians/vegans, don’t miss the Seitan Fajitas served with Tofu Sour Cream. MOJAVE: They have one of the best backyards in Astoria. TACUBA: Share the Piña Para La Niña—a skinny margarita served in a pineapple for two—with a friend.
