In 2005, pioneering hops-head Juan Cruz introduced craft suds to Astoria—then a hinterland for quality guzzling—with Sunswick 35/35. He's expanded his boozy domain to Long Island City with this stately 98-seat tavern, a love letter to the borough, with vintage photos of Queens and leather booths hand-sewn by Cruz himself. The brick-walled space—sporting stained-glass lamps and a massive, handmade Pepsi-Cola sign—pours 12 to 14 all-American drafts, with an emphasis on Queens favorites such as Rockaway and SingleCut, as well as other outer-borough standards like Kelso. A Belgium-focused bottle list of 40 selections includes the full line of Trappists, like Orval and Chimay, while a 12-item wine list and 16 tequilas round out the drink selection. Guests can order eclectic small plates, like pear-and-pork dumplings and mini leg of lamb with walnut-date bread, dished out by chef-partner Nick Guitart (Balthazar).
