The charming barkeeps at this French-Italian watering hole and eatery in Astoria will make anything you want, but their specialty is a jolting Brick Martini (Stoli vanilla, Baileys, Kahlúa and a shot of espresso). Ornate surroundings—Moroccan lamps, plush sofas—and a masterful mix of lounge tunes on the stereo draw in such a big crowd that you may not find a seat on weekends.
