Queens – Astoria
30-09 34th St at 30th Ave
This homey Queens gastropub combines an industrial feel--lots of concrete and massive beams--with the dim, dark-wood coziness ofan Irish pub. The bar's smartly curated array of reasonably priced suds includes strong selections from craft brewerieslike Kelso, Fire Island and Captain Lawrence, but the unpretentious bartender will just as happily crack open a cheap bottle or can of everyman ale like Amstel or Miller. Cocktails are ambitious, but many of them fall flat. Stick to a brew and a bite from the satisfying food menu: Beer-battered McClure's pickles are an epic bar snack.
