Flattopps makes no sense. Our brains can barely handle this place, and we don’t know how it exists. But it does. And if you want a burger with Captain-Crunch-crusted-bacon and French toast for buns, you can get one here. That burger is called the “Gucci Mane,” and it could be the least healthy thing we’ve ever eaten. It’s also comforting in a weird way. Like if a dog came up to you and asked you how your day was. Strange and dreamlike, but also kind of nice. That said, this place doesn’t make the best burgers in NYC. It does, however, make the most original ones. The Gucci Mane is only the beginning.
Flattopps is permanently closed.

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