Broadway in Astoria is a fantastic place to go out and grab food or drinks. The area's known for its Greek food, but recently started stacking up its restaurant game cred against the rest of the city. Strand, for example, opened just a couple months ago, and has already become a go-to casual spot for groups of all sizes. The large space is a quasi-indoor-beer-garden (though they have an outdoor area as well) and they occasionally offer live folk/indie music as background noise, good for swilling any of their large selection of beers or whiskeys to. It's perfect for starting the night with the boys, getting a huge group together for a celebration, or date night. -Tony Markovich
