12 Days of Giveaways_2015 LogoFriends we’ve sadly reached our final week of 12 Days of Giveaways. But we must press forward, and lucky for us, this giveaway will give us comfort and…joy. (Come on I waited till Day 8 to make a holiday pun!!)

russia-gruyere-sandwich-with-salad-the-queens-kickshaw-astoria-queensThe Queens Kickshaw has provided fantastic comfort food (hello grilled cheese sandwiches!), coffee, and ciders for years. However they’ve kicked things up (way up) with a well-curated cocktail menu including slushies!! The slushies have alcohol in them…in case that wasn’t clear. Plus they just launched their winter menu! (Stay tuned for a future post where we dive into all the delectable options)

Love the grilled cheese and the coffee AND that its walking distance from my house. I would give 1 giftcard to an Astorian friend who has never come, and use the other to treat my friends and I to brunch!


There are so many great things about The Queens Kickshaw: the cider, grilled cheese, great beers on tap. I would love to explore their cocktail menu more – I’ve just been once since they started doing that!


I actually haven’t been there yet but it sounds like it’d be a good date night with the hubs

Dave Olverson

Definitely would eat a grilled cheese. I have only been once and I DIDN’T get a grilled cheese. Need to correct that error.


Love their forward thinking to combine food ingredients you wouldn’t normally pair… case in point: Asian Jewish Brunch.

Not sure when winners are announced but would love to attend that event with gift cards in hand!

Sara Group

I would eat so many Ratatat toasts, probably a grilled cheese or two, and take a couple of good friends out.


I love their amazing coffee and focus on delicious ciders! Also their tomato soup is the bomb, although I’m hoping that they offer more vegan-friendly options in the future!

Cynthia Hannon

I have always wanted to check this place out, as my girlfriends keep recommending me to come here. So I really hope that I get a chance to visit this very yummy place.


I absolutely LOVE their grilled cheeses, and would probably spend all of the gift card on that.

Jen Makulowich

I would try all of the grilled cheeses, especially now that I see they offer gf bread! Nom. Those brussel sprouts sound SO good, too!

Karen Mangonon

My family loves their grilled cheeses! If I won, I’d do a family dinner & invite some friends.


I’ve lived in Astoria for 2 1/2 years but I’ve never been to Queens Kickshaw and I’ve always wanted to go. The grilled cheese looks amazing :)

Carmen Mootz

I love Queens Kickshaw! Best grilled cheese in New York for sure. I would take my veggie friends here and pig out.


I haven’t been able to try them yet so I would take my husband out in a date with these gift cards!


The Queens Kickshaw, and I think too often people ignore the fact that it’s VEGETARIAN!! As a vegetarian, I totally appreciate the fact that I can pick any option on the menu, but that I can bring omnivorous friends and family, and they love it too!


I love that the Queens Kickshaw stands out among all the restaurants in Astoria with their atmosphere and their unique drinks. Their grilled cheeses are the best comfort food in town. I love taking friends and family when they visit from out of town.


I could eat the Gouda grilled cheese every day for the rest of my life and be completely satisfied each time. Love this place!


Love: that’s it’s so close to my house I can almost see it from my window. If I had a giftcard (or two!) I would eat ALL OF THE GRILLED CHEESE.


Yum! I love their food and their cider list. I would definitely use the $100 gift card to go out to dinner with friends!
