Located in the heart of Astoria this new Brick oven pizza place is bringing even more food competition to the block! The place is right next to 2 of the most popular restaurants on the block, Zenon and Il Bambino. It's a feat getting people in with such amazing places surrounding it and yet it was packed!!!!!!!!! The place is no frills, simple wood tables and chairs with a word Milk Flower painted a cross the pizza prep area. Some outdoor seating for when it gets warmer (bonus). Beautiful clay oven and pizza station take up most of the space. It smells incredible inside! At the Table: The meatballs...1/2 pork 1/2 beef and chocked full of garlic! Here

Holy Hipsters...This place has no sign, no wait staff, and is so BK! I kinda love it... Walking into this dark, seat yourself, bar to the right, dining area to the left can be a bit jarring.....Helppppp! I need direction tell me where to sit!(JK...kinda) The place has amazing character! All orders are taken at the bar... Menu is simple drinks are good and cheap! At the table: The fried Chicken and biscuits, Hot Fish, and the Adult Grilled Cheese. The chicken was spicy and crispy really well done with 2 sauces....the hot sauce was the best! The portion was huge so maybe order this to share. The biscuits were awesome and came with a honey butter....BUTTTTTERRRR nomnomnom! The grilled cheese may have been the best I've ever had...Super simple, not 100% sute what kind of cheese it was but it had some green chillies and was def slow cooked be cause the cheese was oozing out and there was a ton of it! Last was the fish sandwich w spicy slaw. The fish was juicy and flakey with a nice spicy crust. The slaw gave it just the right amount of fresh crunch, it was awesome. I would recommend any of these dishes but next time I want to try the nachos and soups! The drinks are all under 10 bucks!!! I tried the vodka cooler (tea vodka and lemonade) and the planters punch (huge and strong) Both were awesome! There is no website (they're too cool) But the menu is online: Click Here for more info

We started with an amuse bouche of something that was similar to kimchi, very light so it was a great way to get started. Click here for site

Ditmars in Astoria is poppin! Along with all the other avenues, it's just an insane amount of restaurants and bars. Last night was Tufino's. The restaurant is narrow with the bar to the left and brick oven just past it to the right. This place serves all kinds of Italian dishes but the pizzas were amazing! They were very traditional in that they are cooked at SUPER high heat ...only takes about 90 secs for 1! The crust is soft and it eats like a flat bread...super yummy. We tried the Di maria and the Neapolitan. Both were awesome but Di Maria was the best! Also at the table was a potato and prosciutto as well as a meat ball pie (both with pork so couldn't try). Those were gone within 10 mins! I'm def going back for more ...however once they cooled down they weren't as tasty so I would say no to delivery. Also do yourself a favor and get the chocolate pizza with bananas (you're not too full trust me)... It's like giving your stomach a hug!
