The Strand Smokehouse is enormous. It’s kind of like a big garage with a bar, a bunch of picnic tables, and a barbecue station in the back corner. So if you need a place to hang with a group in Astoria, this is a great option. The barbecue here is very good, and you should probably devote most your attention to the several kinds of ribs. A whole rack will run you around $20, and it will last you several days if you get lost in a snowstorm.

"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.
