Sugar Freak is a Cajun/Creole restaurant a block off the stretch in Astoria known as Little Egypt, but the big, packed space feels like a New Orleans-themed party. Beads hang from the light fixtures, and the big, packed space is full of groups sharing things like crawfish boils and jambalaya. They play loud music and pour strong draft cocktails, like the one that’s just fruit juice and a lot of rum. This is a fun spot to come with a big group for boozy brunch or a kind of rowdy night out. They also have plenty of outdoor seating during nice weather.

The Boil

The boil is fine if you're looking for a night of eating seafood with your hands, but don't expect a real New Orleans experience. Expect butter and Old Bay and that's about it.
