There is a restaurant in the heart of Chelsea called Elmo and they have the best macaroni and cheese I have ever had.The contemporary décor and exciting drink menu should not be surpassed by their creative menu full of all-American comfort food.

Sanford’s was the second restaurant picked from my “Eat Around Astoria” hat and I was so excited to try this place for dinner. If you live in (or close to) Astoria, you have probably stood on the corner of Broadway and 31st street waiting over an hour for Sanford’s brunch. If so, you’ve probably seen me!

I am a big fan of tapas and love the chance to try smaller plates of new foods or cuisines and not feel guilty if I don’t end up liking it (I’m a very picky eater). So luckily, the first place that was picked from my “Eats Around Astoria” hat was La Rioja, a quaint tapas bar located on Broadway and 33rd street.

Most people on Friday night like to get home from a grueling week at work, pop open a can of their favorite light beer and pre-game before meeting up with friends and bar-hopping around the city. Me, on the other hand, like to come home, lie on the couch watching old episodes of The West Wing until I get so hungry I can’t even see straight and order Chinese food on Seamless.

Over the weekend, I took a break from unpacking boxes and decided I needed a night out, complete with dinner and a movie. I moved in the beginning of the month to another apartment in Astoria, just a measly 8 blocks away, but have just recently discovered a plethora of brand new restaurants to try in the area.
