If you live in Astoria or LIC, Milkflower should be on your radar. And even if you don’t live over there, it’s a good spot to know about. It’s a neighborhood place, and it’s both casual and affordable enough for a weeknight dinner, but they serve the sort of food that you’ll look forward to eating on a weekend. Get a pizza with honey and sopressata, or try the one called the “Van Dammer” if you’re a fan of brussels sprouts and you want something that tastes equal parts healthy and unhealthy. They serve the same menu all day, so you’ll always have plenty of pizzas to choose from, along with a few pastas, salads, and small plates.

"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.

Totonno Pizzeria Napolitana
Legendary thin crust pizza that you should make the trip to Coney Island for.
L&B Spumoni Gardens
One of the best around, assuming you can get down with a square slice. Who can’t get down with a square slice?
Bruno in the East Village mills its own whole wheat flour, and tops its pizza with things like fermented tomatoes. It's...interesting.
