You go to Butcher Bar for the burnt ends. They’re little chunks of charred brisket, and they’re both sweet and salty - and we would eat a whole bucket of them if we knew for certain that it wouldn’t adversely affect our health. There’s also a bunch of other barbecue here, but we wouldn’t say it’s the best in the area (that would probably be Salt & Bone). As for the space itself, it sort of feels like a southern-themed restaurant you’d find in a nice airport.

"NO MENUS. JUST FISH" is pretty much everything you need to know about this Astoria restaurant.
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.

The Red Cat
There is a crowd that goes to The Red Cat because it’s a quality local spot with just enough flavor that they can rely on for a consistently good meal and a glass or two of wine. While it is indeed an older crowd, it’s not a stuffy one.
