Any info on new bakery on Austin St.?

Funny u say this. I always pass Marthas bakery in astoria and their decor is so nice and there cakes and sweets look awesome BUT every time i try something I'm disappointed.

JJ's Fusion now fusing sugar, bad Chinese, and badder sushi

jj fusion was my favorite for sushi in astoria but the last time i went it was "absolutely different". It wasnt horrible but it just wasnt the same and everything was sweet. We ordered rolls which were ok and the salmon dish which was drenched in a very very sweet sauce (almost not edible). I asked someone who knew the chef very well and he told me that the original chef is gone and that he opened his own place. I'll try to find out the name of the place. Stay Tuned.

Sanford Restaurant - Astoria's best diner?

just wanted to update everyone!
the sanford diner was renovated probably in 2007 and has become slightly different then what it was. After hearing a few good reviews i attempted to revisit after many years. The decor was very nice although i felt like i was in a sushi joint. My friend ordered the pulled pork sandwich and i had a burger. we also ordered fries (gross and very oily similar to BK) and a salad to share. the salad was good. the pulled pork had a very bad pig smell to it and lacked taste. The burger with swiss was very very good, (but for the price it better had been good). Also after leaving i felt like i just ate chinese food, you know that horrible MSG feeling. Maybe they use that for taste?? who knows.
overall i felt for the food we had it was on the expensive side. i think you probably pay for the renovation which was well done but japanese themed (i felt) . i dont think i'll revisit. maybe for the breakfast?? not sure

Best Gyro?

You know what is really funny???
The people that own it are Greek and thay are the ones running it with a couple of latin americans,russian,italianstaff etc.
wake up you are in NY most places have people from all over working for them
One other thing "awful" is not a word to describe a landmark like Romanos
but whatever

And as for BZ GRILL I DON'T LIKE IT

An Astoria List

FYI
Was this list a link from somewhere else??
You have missed a few good restaurants and also mentioned a few that have closed
ex. Roumeli has been closed for over a decade, syros, karyatis,san souci etc
Also, you are right about Omonias food but his pastries are pretty good

Wedding Receptions: Bx, New Rochelle, etc

Got married at Glen island (the grounds aregorgeous......no question)

Food was very important to us because we felt that many judge a wedding solely on food
and because we like good food
I got so many compliments from everyone especially about cocktail hour
its not your typical catering it is gourmet like
have been to surf club once cant really remember

Good Luck

Brunch in Astoria??

Didnt take your advice and went to GRAND
The service is awful, awful, awful

went over there and was very disappointed
from the food to the service to the crazy hostess
Seems like maybe it was sold to Russians because the staff was speaking Russian

SAVE YOUR MONEY AND TIME
STAY AWAY!!!!!
