Chela & Garnacha is just a small, wood-paneled room with some cactuses and green tables, and they do some of the best Mexican food you’ll find in the area. They specialize in tacos, and they do a bunch of different kinds like shrimp and al pastor - and, for a little bit extra, they’ll wrap any of these ingredients in melted cheese. You should, of course, do this, and you should also get a hibiscus margarita, as well as the masa cakes with shredded chicken.

Los Tacos No. 1
Some of the best tacos in New York City are hiding from you in the back of Chelsea Market. It’s time you went and found them.
Trattoria L’icontro is not only awesome, but worthy of a trip to Astoria with a group of your friends. Everything about the space is thoroughly cheesy and overstated, but that’s kind of the whole point. No gimmicks, just really good Italian food and really nice people.
Astoria Seafood is a seafood market and restaurant where you pick your fish and tell them how you’d like it cooked.
