As an Astoria resident, I love dining at great places in Queens. Best borough ever! Fingers crossed.

Give me all the restaurants. I’d live in this restaurant week if I could. So many gems.


I’ve been meaning to make it out to Salt & Fat. The menu all sounds interesting, but they had me from the start the Fuji apple starter. Great for fall and my favorite type of apple.

EVERYTHING on the Venturo menu looks amazing… but I’ve also heard nothing but good things about Salt & Fat, so it would be tough to choose!

Would love to go to Sunny Side Restaurant Week! Salt and Fat is amazing – I’m sure others are too!
