    Great atmosphere but in order to pay with a CC you have to put a minimum charge of $20 which is really annoying

    There's not much space here, but what's offered up is a lovely stone-walled cloister complete with wreaths and hanging plants, a perfect spot for imbibing cocktails.

    This popular Astoria spot gets crowded as hell on weekend evenings, so it's quite fortuitous that the outdoor garden provides a respite from all the loud-talkers boozing inside. Read more

    Very Williamsburg. Happy Hour $4 drafts. Sweet Afton Breakfast Burger (Pat Lafreida beef, fried egg, & bib lettuce) during brunch (until 6:30pm) is delicious. Mac & Cheese and Fried Pickles are tasty.
