The Strand Smokehouse

Get hickory-smoked brisket at this Astoria 'cue joint from chef Eric Milley (Jeffrey's Grocery, Joseph Leonard). In addition to BBQ standards, the meatcentric kitchen dishes out charcuterie (such as duck pastrami, chicken liver mousse) and upscale plates (like a duck-leg confit). White tiled walls and a cement floor lend the room a spare, industrial feel. Bartenders dispatch bourbon and Scotch nips straight from aged-wooden barrels.

So spacious with an awesome atmosphere. I always love the crowd it draws. Usually the entertainment on stage is awesome, especially when it is musical. (the stand up sets tend not to play well.) Great food, fun drinks. Sweet spot for a birthday party. Do they still do brunch? They should.

I love this place, it's not super cheat considering it's in astoria but it's definitely worth the money the food is fantastic and the drinks are really good and different and strong, I personally only need one and a half to be feeling pretty nice. In the warmer months there's a nice amount of outside space to hang out which is always great and in the colder months it has a great cozy vibe. It's definitely my number one date spot ;)


Place is huge, cool live music, service - well its self service and food prices are too high for the quality and presentation
