Astoria now has a whole bunch of burger options—all in one restaurant. Put together the burger of your dreams. (Kobe beef, with gruyere cheese, caramelized onions and zesty smokehouse for example?) Life is delicious.After winning the hearts of burger fanatics in Brooklyn and Manhattan, the folks at the Burger Bistro have set their sights on another borough to woo with their popular build-your-own ethos. Since opening up their first shop in Bay Ridge, they’ve made their way to Park Slope, the Upper East Side, and now – at long last – up to Astoria. Though the new location has only been open since December, they're already doing the things that earned them fame in the first place: making incredible burgers with the freshest ingredients, treating customers kindly, and giving everyone who walks the through the door the chance to create the exact combo they’re craving.
Organic lamb burger with smoked gouda and portobello mushrooms? Grilled ahi tuna steak with frizzled onions and jalapeno mayo? The options are endless, and will all be served with a smile. But after picking out the proper patty, there’s one choice that’s incredibly easy to make. Just say yes to the Buffalo Tater Tots. Or, for the truly adventurous, keep an eye on their specials – they've been known to offer up one of their beefy burgers sandwiched between two fluffy halves of a fresh doughnut. Of course, for folks who don’t mix their sweets with their savories, there’s still a way to sneak in some dessert. The restaurant's homemade ice cream sandwiches are also known for stealing hearts across NYC. Choose between three decadent options: Oatmeal Cookies with Buttercream Ice Cream, Snickerdoodle Cookies with Cinnamon Ice Cream, or Chocolate Crackle Cookies with Peppermint Ice Cream. Talk about a Sophie's Choice-esque love triangle...
