Astoria Restaurants - Astoria Queens
Astoria Neighborhood / Astoria Restaurants / Queens Restaurants / Queens Buzz. Al 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 Al 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.

Aegean Cove - A Tasteful Blend Of Old & New
Astoria Neighborhood / Astoria Restaurants / Queens Restaurants / Queens Buzz. I visited the Aegean Cove at the north end of Steinway Street in Astoria one Friday evening, to sample their Greek cuisine.
Chef Christos Christou, who grew up on Cyprus, manages the restaurant's cuisine with a staff that has been with him for about a decade. Christos technique is to begin with traditional dishes and old world flavors, and then build upon them by drawing out a particular flavor or by adding something new. Thus the Aegean Cove serves Greek dishes created to delight both those who long for tradition, as well as those who long for something new.

Queens Food Fusion
Nutrition & Sumptuous Cuisine in Queens
March 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.
