Welcome to 2013, Astoria! New eats, new adventures await and we hope you’re ready.  Here’s a few things you can start chomping on as of this week!

The holidays may be over, but special sales and promotions are going to go for a little while longer.  Especially at Chocolate Swirl, keep an eye out for a special sale this week, and also some new ideas for cakes.  Mmmm…sounds so sweet.

We recently had breakfast at Cafe Bar and really enjoyed this classic haunt, me especially loving the Cypriot breakfast with their homemade sausage, which is made with red wine.  It’s hearty and flavorful and the perfect thing to enjoy in winter.  32-90 34th Avenue, Astoria.  718. 204.5273
