Queens: Where to Find the Best Restaurants in New York
For in-the-know foodies, the city's other outer borough is now the go-to destination for high-end comfort food. Here are the eateries to try now.
Prior to opening in a former Irish pub, Alobar was covered by foodie blogs with breathless anticipation. Luckily, the menu, created by Jeff Blath (ex of West Village staple Jane) and chef Ian Kapitan, has lived up to the hype with a meaty array of plates small (roasted bone marrow with blue-cheese croutons) and large (suckling pig with Cheddar risotto), accompanied by a well-edited list of organic wines and craft beers.
