Another Astoria institution expanding to Manhattan.

This 54 year old institution located at 30-13 Steinway street in Astoria has been keeping the locals happy with top notch pizza and now it’s time for the city to get a turn. A new branch will open this spring at 17 Clinton Street in Manhattan.

Dear Jonathan, We’ve been going to our farm in Pennsylvania twice a week to hand-pick fruit, vegetables & herbs. We’ve been featuring fresh produce (tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, squash, peaches, plums, parsley and basil) in many of our daily specials for the past few weeks and will continue to do so as long as the harvest lasts. It really is a great time of year to be creative and experiment with delicious, home-grown products and we would like to invite everyone to come and share the goodness with us.

We also are featuring live music twice a week. On Mondays, The Larry Luger Trio plays jazz and on Tuesdays, The New Standards Trio plays contemporary standards and old favorites. Both nights are a great deal of fun (and we encourage people to get up and sing).

Got my Sugarfreak in Astoria

I first stumbled on SugarFreak in Astoria about a year ago. They were only a quirky interior then, but recently they opened their New Orleans-influenced culinary doors to the world. Here’s my story of a recent visit.
