We Heart Astoria is excited to welcome our newest sponsor Off the Hook to our blogging community. Off the Hook provides the neighborhood with a fresh-twist on traditional seafood and raw bar flair. Still settling into the neighborhood at only six months old, Off the Hook continues to evolve their menu to reflect the seasons, with a dedication to serving classic seafood dishes. Although you wouldn’t go to a Seafood joint for the cocktails, Off the Hook has carefully crafted their cocktails based on Chef Glenn’s herbal and fruit syrups and infusions, their wine and beer menu is also solid.

Off The Hook Astoria
The WHA team recently tried out the winter menu and enjoyed each course; from cocktails to clams. Check out some of our meal highlights below.  Also make sure you check out Off the Hook’s weekday and brunch specials. (Off the Hook 29-08 34th Street, Astoria)

PEI-mussels-offthehookPEI Mussels – A new spin on mussels, these are served with a rich bone marrow broth with bits of pork belly and ginger.  Given that the mussels are nice and meaty, this dish is a great representation of local seafood.

grilled-oysters-offthehookGrilled Clams – A unique take on oysters, these are packed with delicious fragrant ingredients such as fresh herbs and well done, crusty parmesan cheese.

shrimp-mofongo-offthehookShrimp Mofongo – An innovative rendition on this traditionally Puerto Rican dish, Off the Hook’s version is composed of giant prawns that hug a sweet mound of mashed plantains.  Resting on a vibrant and colorful saffron aioli sauce, this dish is a treat for the senses.

pirates-pepper-punch-offthehookPirate’s Pepper Punch – When you come to Off the Hook, you mustn’t forget the cocktails.  This gorgeous concoction stood out to us right away, as it packs a mean punch from the jalapeno.  It’s nicely paired with the mussels dish I just described.
