    »D'Antigua Lounge

    D'Antigua in Jackson heights has good food, a bright atmosphere for a lounge bar and often hosts live Latin bands. There is not much room on the dance floor, but the music is worthwhile.

    »Central Sushi Bar Lounge

    Central serves up Mediterranean food to New Yorkers in style. The interior is very impressive- leather banquettes, divided from the main floor by waist high glass partitions, line walls made from wide wooden panels, and in the center rests a white-padded bar. Towards the back sits a sushi bar, but the Greek food is Central's real draw, featuring, among other items, a positively delicious goat cheese salad. Outside is a lovely patio that is open during spring and summer for star-gazers and smokers. DJ's spin Greek music early in the night, then turn to European house later, as the club starts to get crowded and the bar warms up. The largely European crowd adds to the Mediterranean ambiance that Central cultivates. Food and drinks are pricey, which may discourage frequent visits, but Central is worth it, especially for a nightspot in Queens.

    »Christos Steak House

    This recently renovated restaurant-cum-bar is located in the Queens neighborhood. Executive Chef Mina Newman brings you the best American steakhouse food, with traces of Greek cuisine. Parts of the menu tend to change regularly, as the kitchen relies heavily on seasonally available fruits and vegetables. The lemon sorbets served with meals are quite popular with the crowds. The prices are a little steep but that does not deter foodies from heading here, and parties of 20 to 80 people can be accommodated at a time. Valet Parking is available. For further information, check the website or call for details.

    »Bohemian Hall & Beer Garden

    An Astorian institution and last of its kind in the city, Bohemian Hall brings the flavor of the old country. A decently priced bar and restaurant serve Czech delights inside. But the reason to go is the Beer Garden, which is a must at least once a summer. It gets packed on the weekends. Locals like to play cards and board games on a calm summer's night. Kielbasa and other grilled favorites are available along with pitchers of Czech beers, like Staropramen.

    »Chocolate Spoon Coffee Shop

    Located in Astoria, the Chocolate Spoon Coffee Shop is a cute, little, Brazilian, family-run café. The many affordable treats, often Brazilian pastries, along with sweets make it a delightful place to have a bite or get take out. Daily breakfast, lunch, and dinner specials change, but often are hearty dishes with rice and beans. The coffee is good enough for most, except coffee snobs. The warm, friendly staff seem to want to make sure you like your food, especially the sweets. Some might argue it's best to be born with a Chocolate Spoon in your mouth. Please call ahead for hours.

    »Fatty's Cafe

    Fatty's off the Ditmars stop in Astoria serves up a great selection of Latin and American delights. One of the hipper Astorian eateries, Fatty's plays a loud track of music to groove to while eating and drinking. This can create a tendency for shouting that shouldn't be required at such a low-key establishment. In the summer there's a small patio with umbrella tables, which can be great fun. The full, yet compact bar can offer a nice seating alternative. Servers are chipper, and help make Fatty's an excellent spot for weekend brunch or to hang with a few friends.

    »Waltz-Astoria

    Situated on Ditmars Boulevard, Waltz-Astoria is an expanded coffee shop adorned with art. But it is more than a coffee shop and a lovely little hang out by day. Beyond coffee, they offer a good selection of wine and beer. The cake portions are hefty and sweet. The live music, mostly of the adult contemporary, classical and jazz varieties, and other entertainment offered happen regularly and often pack the seated house. Check the listings. The staff are friendly, but a bit overworked on busy music nights. Go around back for the secret backdoor entrance directly to the revamped coffee bar.
