There’s so much going on at Studio Square in Astoria that you could spend a day here and not even realize how many big screens there are inside. Along with two separate indoor spaces that have their own bars, TVs, and sound systems, there’s an outdoor area about the size of a medium-sized European city’s town square, which has tons of communal picnic tables and six different bars. They also show sports on movie-theater-sized projectors in the courtyard.

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