Lots of places in the nabe are offering all sorts of warm, comforting foods that’ll help you endure our second round of the polar vortex. In addition to remaining open last night, Ovelia will continue to dish out comforting dishes especially during their Rock ‘n Ribs BBQ tonight. 34-01 30th Avenue, Astoria. 718.721.7217 Image by David Chan Speaking of 30th Avenue, we’re pumped about Pink Nori, the innovative make-your-own sushi restaurant, which will be opening up soon. Here’s a sneak peek of their non-traditional sushi creations. 36-06 30th Avenue, Astoria. There’s nothing like enjoying a tall glass of brew on a cold night, especially something thick and comforting like stout and porter. We recently spied the full beer menu at LIC’s Woodbines and it looks enticing. Hope you get to check it out. 47-10 Vernon Blvd, LIC. 718.361.8488 In the mood for a burger today? This $10 special at Katch Brewery caught our eye. If you fancy something else, the nachos and the pulled pork sliders are great too! 31-19 Newtown Avenue, Astoria. 718.777.2230 Since they were closed yesterday, Queens Comfort is making up for lost times with tonight’s “Lil’ Dizzy” special, which is a Captain Crunch chicken po’ boy and French Onion soup with buttermilk biscuits. We gotta hand it to these guys for their weirdness and originality! 40-09 30th Avenue, Astoria. 718.728.2350 What better way to warm up than with Alobar’s #whiskeyoftheday. Today’s special is the Whistlepig Straight Rye for $9. 46-42 Vernon Blvd, LIC. 718.752.6000 Twitter Facebook Email Print alobarcomfort foodkatch breweryOveliaPink Noripolar vortexsushiWoodbines Related scoops Oscar Watch Parties 2018 – Astoria and LIC St. Patrick’s Day Celebrating in Astoria and LIC Valentine’s Day 2017 in Astoria and LIC Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
