The High Water is a tropical-themed bar in Astoria where the cocktails have names like “Naughty or Nice” and “Drunk Grandma.” And they’re all pretty solid and interesting - although you can skip the one with gummy bear vodka. The space is just one room with high ceilings and potted plants, and there are a bunch of tables where you can hang out with a small group, eat some snacks like guacamole and fried chicken, and drink something out of a tiki mug.

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.

The Commodore is bad. Bad because merely looking at the food here will jack up your cholesterol thirty points, and worse because everything is so good that you’ll crave it all the time.
Quality cocktails and more than decent food on Smith Street. Brunch is a big deal here.
