Looking for a casual bite to eat in Astoria? Head to The Barn, a local bar and restaurant specializing in new American cuisine. To start, split small plates like the tuna tartare with cucumbers and avocados ($11), pulled pork sliders with sauerkraut ($6) or the manchego-stuffed meatballs served with tomato sauce ($9). For the main course, you might go for the pierogies sauteed with brussels sprouts, bacon, red peppers and onion ($13) or the heartier braised short ribs served with roasted beets and garlic mashed potatoes ($19). The restaurant only serves homemade desserts, including key lime pie ($5), crepes topped with Nutella and fresh fruit ($6) and panna cotta ($5). As for drinks, you can take your pick of draft beers, wines by the glass or bottle and even a few signature cocktails.
