It’s finally starting to feel like fall in Astoria! The unseasonably warm temperatures are on their way out, which means a few things: it’s time for sweaters, boots, scarves, and stick-to-your-ribs comfort food. Here’s a rundown of some of our favorite places for cozy, feel-good grub. Warning: a nap may be necessary after reading! Sugar Freak Photo Courtesy of Shi N. Via Yelp Sugar Freak’s signature Cajun/Creole cuisine is rich in both tradition and depth of flavor. Menu items like waffles, rice and beans, biscuits and gravy, and their super-indulgent desserts are all excellent choices for a chilly night. Sugar Freak 36-18 30th Ave|(718) 726-5850 sugarfreak.com| Facebook | Instagram | Twitter Queens Comfort One of the most obvious choices, Queens Comfort takes comfort food to another level entirely, upping the ante on classic standbys. Cap’n Crunch chicken fingers, short rib mac & cheese, and peanut butter banana pie are just a few of the many choices that are perfect for treating yourself. And have you heard about the super secret party we’re throwing with them? Queens Comfort 4009 30th Ave|(718) 728-2350 queenscomfort.com| Facebook | Instagram | Twitter The Barn Photo Courtesy of Masa T. The Barn is a little off the beaten path, but that just gives you more walking time to burn off a solid meal! This gem features childhood favorites like ravioli, personal pizzas, and beef sliders, all with a slightly upscale twist. This is comfort food, grown up. The Barn 30-09 21st St|(718) 728-0305 thebarnastoria.com | Facebook | Instagram | Twitter Leng Thai Photo Courtesy of Sean R Via Yelp Thai might seem like an odd choice for comfort food, but nothing says coziness to me like noodles. There’s nothing like a big bowl of Pad See Ew or the classic Pad Thai after a long day. Leng offers some of the best Thai in the neighborhood, and is still a solid choice even when the weather isn’t warm enough for their beautiful outdoor garden. Leng Thai 33-09 Broadway |(718) 956-7117 lengthai.com | Facebook | Yelp The Queens Kickshaw Is there a better example of comfort food than grilled cheese and tomato soup? For vegetarians, TQK is the place to be for sophisticated sandwiches that speak to your inner child. (I always scan the menu for new sandwiches, but end up rotating between my two favorites: the Cheddar and Mozzarella and the Great Hill Blue!) The Queens Kickshaw 40-17 Broadway |(718) 777-0913 thequeenskickshaw.com| Facebook | Instagram | Twitter The Pomeroy This new (and Lady Gaga-approved!) restaurant is making comfort food classy. Choose from fried pickles, meatballs, mac and cheese, burgers, and see what all the fuss is about! The Pomeroy 36-12 Ditmars Blvd |(718) 721-1579 thepomeroynyc.com| Facebook | Instagram Brick Cafe Brick Cafe is a great spot to bring a date or visiting parents: the food is impressive and delicious without being over-the-top or intimidating. Their pastas are especially comforting: penne alla vodka, homemade gnocchi, and ravioli are all excellent options. For a little meat, roast chicken and a four-cheese burger will do the trick just fine. Brick Cafe 30-95 33rd St |(718) 267-2735 brickcafe.com| Facebook | Instagram | Twitter The Shady Lady How about sampling comfort food tapas-style? At The Shady Lady, bring a friend and try all of their hearty dishes in tasting portions: carbonara mac and cheese, empanadas, sliders, meatballs, and much more. The Shady Lady 34-19 30th Ave |(718) 440-9081 | Facebook | Instagram | Twitter Butcher Bar Mmmm, barbecue. Is there anything more comforting than a big plate full of different kinds of meat piled high, with rich sides to complement? The beef brisket, pulled pork, and burnt ends at Butcher Bar are top notch, as are the baked beans, mashed potatoes, and corn cakes. Don’t forget a lemonade or beer! Butcher Bar 37-10 30th Ave |(718) 606-8140 butcherbar.com | Facebook | Instagram | Twitter Bareburger For me, One meal that brings to mind carefree childhood days is burgers and milkshakes. Bareburger knocks both out of the park with their wide selection of options. A Banana Foster Milkshake with a Roadhouse Bison burger? Sure! How about a Hot Honey milkshake with a Maui Wowi boar burger? The possibilities are endless, and delicious.
