The Gazette's review of the week is: Acquista Trattoria
178-01 Union Turnpike
Flushing • 718.969.1411
www.acquistany.com

Acquista Trattoria on Union Tpke has been a family affair for 18 years, run with love and unsurpassed hospitality by the Acquista Family. Rosario Acquista heads the family along with his lovely wife who is known as Mamma Tiramisu for her fabulous dessert. Together they have five sons, four of which work in the restaurant, including Chef Alessandro, Joe, Paolo and Fabio, while Carlo is a talented soccer coach. Acquista Trattoria is the local favorite for enormous panini sandwiches, homemade pasta dishes, entrées, fresh fish and seafood, and of course….pizza!

The Gazette's review of the week is: Hamido Seafood
33-08 Ditmars Boulevard, Astoria • 718.545.2200

Hamido Seafood is like a breath of fresh air off the coast of Alexandria, Egypt’s seashore. This unique, new seafood restaurant offers the freshest fish and seafood available, served in a bright, sparkling clean environment in which to enjoy it. The décor is as fresh as the fish, with white-washed walls adorned with lovely photos of Alexandria, Egypt, fishing nets, and nautical elements. Their slogan is “We Sea-Food Different,” and nothing could be truer.

Regardless of the weather outside, it’s always sunny and warm at Rice ‘n Beans, offering you authentic Brazilian cuisine. Chef and owner Carlos Inacio has opened many successful Brazilian restaurants in Manhattan, Queens, and Brooklyn, including his original Rice ‘n Beans on 9th Avenue in Hell’s Kitchen that opened in 1991. Now, residents of Astoria and Woodside can just stroll in as this charming little restaurant is located just on the border of these two foodie neighborhoods.

The Gazette's review of the week is: Nick’s Bistro
104-20 Metropolitan Avenue
Forest Hills • 718.544.NICK (6425)

Every trip to Nick’s Bistro is a pleasure, with consistently delicious food and cocktails served in a very friendly, comfortable environment. This quiet section of Forest Hills has a strong sense of community and Nick’s Bistro is a great place to enjoy it with outdoor dining in warm weather. The relaxing, sleek interior features dark wood floors, an upholstered banquette and tables for an intimate dinner for two or a larger family meal. Owners Alfred and Mario greet their loyal customers by name, while servers Stefano and John offer excellent, polite service. Nick’s Bistro has been family owned and operated for nearly 10 years, and it just keeps getting better and better.

The Gazette's review of the week is: Metro•Taco of Forest Hills
102-15 Metropolitan Avenue
Forest Hills • 347.494.4947
www.metro-taco.com | Metro Tacos

Metro•Taco is as fresh and new as Spring itself. Opened just about a month ago on Metropolitan Avenue, Metro•Taco is just what the neighborhood needed: a modern, casual eatery with a cool vibe that’s friendly to couples, friends, and families. The whitewashed interior and dark wood floors lend a breezy, beachfront feeling, along with white chairs, ceiling fans, and festive string lights. A bookcase stacked with volumes and antiques cleverly separates the dining room from the lively bar that serves up a fiesta in a glass.

Gregarious owner Stefanos Vouvoudakis and Chef Scheyla Acosta are constantly innovating to create a new experience for the very loyal customers who come on a regular basis (like me). Chef Scheyla, who comes from Barcelona, works her special alchemy in the kitchen using the culinary skills she absorbed from her grandmother as a child in Spain, and later learned at the French Culinary Institute. Meanwhile, beverage director Jonathan treated us to some of his new #cocktails that will be available beginning the day this article appears. My fashionable friend sipped on the new “Mezpresso” cocktail, mixed with smoky Mezcal and a touch of espresso, shaken and served over ice. I tried the “Sweet and Sake Pisco,” a new twist on a Pisco sour made with sake and sweet potato simple syrup. Signature cocktails such as the lemon thyme sour, green apple Collins, stone fruit Negroni, and the Gossip old fashioned still rank high with patrons.

1819 Palmetto St. • Ridgewood
347.799.2071 | 347.799.2070
www.garammasalany.com

The petite and tidy Garam Masala Indian restaurant opened just about six weeks ago in the historic hamlet of Ridgewood. This casual eat-in or take-out eatery offers fine Indian cuisine from all regions of the sub-continent and everything is made on the spot, from fresh ingredients including vegetables, meat, chicken and fish. Enjoy a meal in the dining room seated at neat wood tables surrounded by soothing, smoky blue colored walls, or call in for fast, free delivery.

Every night of the week brings more fun, great food, beer, and cocktails at Austin Public in Forest Hills. Declan and the friendly staff, led by sweet Lucy, have something different planned each night of the week such as 25-cent wings on Mondays, Taco Tuesdays, Wednesday night Trivia contest and baby back ribs, Thursday night Ladies’ night and more. Each night, there are Happy Hour drink specials like $5 beers and house wine, and $6 house cocktails, from 11am to 8pm.
