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.

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.
