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.

katch_burger_wednesdaysIn 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

queens comfort ae collageSince 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
