Well…I have some news Astoria.  After years of being a part of this community – getting to know its wonderful business owners and making tons of friends, I will be moving on to my next adventure in the Pacific Northwest.  A move to Portland, Oregon is in my near future (that’s right Portlandia fans, you can poke fun).  While this will be my last official Food Talk post, I will never stop being a part of the magic that is Astoria and always have it in my heart.  I heart all of you.  You are Astoria!

And with that…I give you my last Food Talk edition.  Hope you salivate, savor and enjoy!

All my delicious best,

So much Astoria food press this week, as we were excited to see Tacuba and Brooklyn Bagel & Coffee Company featured in two very cool Thrillist pieces.

Best of luck, Judith. You will be missed! You’ve been such an important part of Astoria over the past few years. Have an awesome time living (and eating!) in Portland. Keep in touch.



Best of luck. In Portland, you’re only about an hour to the other Astoria, home of The Goonies and Kindergarten Cop.
