Chef Rocco Sacramone of Trattoria L'incontro & Mount Sinai / UCCA Event

Queens Food Fusion

Nutrition & Sumptuous Cuisine in Queens

trattoria lincontro astoria queensMarch 6, 2013 / Food in Queens / Astoria / Queens Buzz. I attended a nutritious cooking class on February 27th featuring Rocco Sacramone, head Chef and Founder, of Trattoria L’incontro of Astoria; working in tandem with Effie Nerantzis, a Registered Dietician, from Mount Sinai Queens. The event was hosted by the United Community Civic Association at the Central Sushi Bar and Lounge in Astoria. And the program was sponsored by Mount Sinai Queens as part of their community health education outreach efforts, some of which we've covered in the past [see Queens healthcare section]. This particular program was intended to demonstrate how to prepare great tasting foods that are healthy and admission was free.

I knew going into this event that it had been fully booked. So I wasn’t surprised as I entered a banquet room, which was fully seated. Rocco and Effie were conversing off stage; while Shelly Felder, Sr Director of Marketing & Communications at Mount Sinai Queens, conversed with Rose Marie Poveromo, President of the United Community Civic Association. The show was about to begin.

Kyclades - Albanian Seafood Restaurants

Astoria Neighborhood / Astoria Restaurants / Queens Restaurants / Queens Buzz. Taverna Kyclades is located on Ditmars in northern Astoris. The Albanian style seafood restaurant provides its clientele with a full Adriatic menu and is well known for its delights from the sea. One could get the feeling of being along the Adriatic on a rainy windswept evening as we dined on octopus, red snapper and lamb chops, as well as a full complement of side dishes.

Kyclades is located along Ditmars Blvd and can be reached via the N Subway line.  Click here to view the full review of the Taverna Kyclades - Albanian Greek restaurants in Astoria.

Sometime around or after 2014 this restaurant was renamed Gastroteca Astoria and run by new management.

This is a review of Café Bar Locale, a Mediterranean style Italian restaurant located in the Astoria neighborhood of Queens NY. Cafe Bar Locale is a casual dining restaurant and offers street side tables during the warmer weather. 

Cafe Bar Locale is located near the Museum Of The Moving Image, the Frank Sinatra School Of The Arts and Kaufman Astoria Studios.  The restaurant is accessible by foot from Sunnyside and Astoria, and by public transit along the N line as it is just a block south of Broadway St and between Steinway and 31st Street.

We visited the restaurant one comfortable evening and here is what we found.  Click here to read a full review of Cafe Bar Locale - Italian Restaurants in Astoria.

Egyptian Restaurants In Astoria

El Omda Egyptian Restaurant

Astoria Neighborhood / Astoria Restaurants / Queens Restaurants / Queens Buzz.

El Omda, loosely translated, means 'mayor of the city' in the Egyptian language. And the feast we had on Friday night was certainly worthy of such a high-ranking government official. But tonite there weren't any officials, just three men with hearty appetites looking for a great meal in the heart of Astoria.

This is a review of the El Omda Egyptian restaurant in the Astoria neighborhood of Queens NY. This restaurant is known for its authentic Egyptian cuisine which arrived here with the owner who is originally from Alexandria, Egypt. Click here to read more about Restaurants in Astoria - El Omda.
