Between the jukebox, dartboard, flatscreens and daily events (think jamming at Sunday night jazz sessions), Blackbird’s has something for everyone.At Blackbird's bar and restaurant in Astoria, you'll find nostalgia of hearty, home-cooked meals by the mouthful. This cozy neighborhood joint is a family-run spot with something for everyone. The atmosphere comes complete with a long, mahogany bar (expertly crafted by a Long Island shipbuilder), table tops decorated with old newspapers and postcards, and a back wall covered in barnyard wood straight from Upstate New York. Make weekly events like Sunday night jazz sessions part of your routine, and you'll begin to feel right at home.
You'll find plenty of standard pub fare, like their popular wings, mixed with other hearty creations like the savory Chorizo & Mushroom Puffs. These creamy sausage-and-shroom-topped puff pastries are ideal for sharing with a group of hungry friends. Check out the Borough, chicken stuffed with ham and gouda, a sharp take on the old Chicken Cordon Bleu. The Q18 is named after the bus that stops out front, releasing riders hungry for this burger's 50/50 mix of juicy beef and crispy chopped bacon (!). Pick your favorite and pair it with one of the seasonal beers on tap for the type of meal that satisfies long into a night of friends and fall weather. Cheers!
