Today is day 3 of our 12 Days of Giveaways here at We Heart Astoria! We’re thrilled with your response and are enjoying the love. Today’s giveaway is dear to our hearts, as it is brunch for two at Vesta! Vesta is probably one of our absolute favorite restaurants in town – the food is fresh, inventive, and delicious, the space is cozy, and the owners are the nicest guys. And then there’s the fabulous Baby Jesus Cake. It gets high marks from many Astorians I know. For me, probably my very favorite dish on the menu is the L’Italiano, which happens to be served during brunch! It’s grilled Italian bread topped with ricotta, hot sopressata, and a poached egg. NOM. The Hangover Pizza is pretty dang good, too. They serve many other delicious things for brunch, so if you win this giveaway, you’re golden. To enter, just leave us a comment telling us what your favorite thing is to eat for brunch. To be honest, one of my absolute favorite brunch items is the mimosa! Such a treat. Be sure to leave your email when you fill out the comment form so we can contact you if you’ve won. Enjoy! UPDATE: We will choose a winner on Monday 12/13, so you still have time to enter!

You can’t go wrong with the warm bankie – light and absolutely delicious on those days you don’t want to overdo it. On the days where you are a bit hungrier or are ‘recovering’, though, the Hangover Pizza can’t be beat! One of my top restaurants in Astoria! Jen December 8th, 2010 I once had a tofu scramble for brunch that blew my mind. It was spiced well, cooked to perfection, and had some tahini-based secret sauce that sent it over the edge. All brunches now must be compared to what was that glory. kellner December 8th, 2010 Prosecco and avocados mia December 8th, 2010 Mmmm coffee and mimosas! And sausage. Any pork products, really. Yum.

Kristie Foster December 8th, 2010 Eggs benedict & a spicy bloody mary… the perfect start to ANY day! Jonathan December 8th, 2010 Brunch has always been a luxuriating excuse for indulgent items with loved ones. Bloodymarys, good coffee, butter, assorted fatty meat products , a perfect poached egg on an English muffin or a heart attack burger with cheese and bacon. Ahhhh 2hrs of bliss with friends. And of course a NYT crossword to ignore after 5 minutes and still look smart by leaving it next to you on the table for all to see. Laura December 8th, 2010 I love pancakes or waffles.
