Astoria Seafood is fun, unique, and very busy. It’s a fish market/restaurant where you pick what you want and specify how you’d like it cooked. There’s a big selection of fish and shellfish, and you’ll wind up paying less than you do at a traditional restaurant. It’s also BYOB, although you might have to drink your wine out of a small plastic cup.

Trattoria L’icontro is not only awesome, but worthy of a trip to Astoria with a group of your friends. Everything about the space is thoroughly cheesy and overstated, but that's kind of the whole point. No gimmicks, just really good Italian food and really nice people.

Marea is about as good as upscale eating gets in Midtown, and there’s a lot of that around. Don’t miss the bone marrow and octopus fusilli.
A Carroll Gardens neighborhood seafood gem, where the chef might throw a lobster at you. God bless this city.
