I know, every blog about food is saying how great this place is, but that's because it really is great. I took myself on a date and let me tell you, it was possibly the best date ever. I wanted to sample a bunch of the appetizers, so I tried the stuffed artichokes, which were so perfect, it brought tears to my eyes. I had the carrot and yogurt dip and it was so perfect! The empanadas- possibly the best I've ever eaten ever. Stuffed with ground beef and raisins, slightly sweet and the crust fried to a golden perfection. I had the Chicka Chicka Boom salad- a simple chicken salad with sun dried tomatoes. So perfect for the hot summer evening.
Loads of vegetarian options, the most adorable staff ever, and a cute little dining room.

32nd St and Broadway, Astoria

This is a place Brette and I go to kinda often for brunch- they have great coffee, and the olive spread they bring out with the bread is de-licious. Highly recommended are the french toast (piled with fresh strawberries), the sundried and ricotta omelette, and the croque monseur. They have specials, and usually the omelettes are excellent.

30-95 33rd St., at 31st. Ave in Astoria.
