Diners can fill stomach vacancies with a half-pound sirloin or turkey burger clasped between a locally crafted brioche roll ($7) or fillets of battered cod accompanied by a sea-salted mound of hand-cut chips and peas served mushy after reminiscing over childhood photos ($12).

Pro Tip: Be sure to try one of our signature hand-crafted cocktails on our rooftop.

Astoria sits right on the East River, just a quick hop from the skycrapers of Manhattan. It's not always easy to get a clear view of those sights from Queens, but that's not so at Sunset Lounge. The rooftop bar sits on the 6th floor of an office building in the heart of Astoria, where it's easy to catch the last rays of sun falling over the city or the twinkle of nighttime lights from the Queensborough Bridge or the Empire State Building. A cool lounge vibe keeps the party going, with dimly lit spaces and leather seating indoors as well as a massive outdoor patio lined with couches. The same careful detail applies to signature cocktails made with top-shelf alcohol and the tapas menu, which supplies both snacks and meals to be shared with a group. Patatas bravas and calamari share space on tables with more modern twists that include sushi and CaribAsian fried rice with pineapple, ginger, and scallions.

Old-school mixes with new all over New York Dog House Kitchen & Bar: its old-fashioned wooden sign is stamped with "Est. 2012," and inside, its decor features old blue-and-white subway tiles spelling out the restaurant's name amidst pendulum lamps and exposed brick. This retro style extends to the menu, which has upscale versions of classic street food.

One of the highlights of the menu is the Classic NY'er, a knackwurst crowned with house-made mustard and sauerkraut. Pickled daikon and sesame chili paste top the Far East dog. Outside the realm of signature dogs, there's the lamb burger paired with hand-cut fries, flat-iron steak with wild mushrooms, and steamed mussels in saffron tomato sauce. You can also complement your meal with a craft beer or compliment it with a tasteful thank-you note.

During the warmer months, diners can enjoy their meals on New York Dog House's outdoor deck.

The martial art of taekwondo, a highlight of the Olympics since the year 2000, isn't just about flashy roundhouse kicks. Known by some as "the way of the foot and the hand," it combines combat and self-defense strategies with potent physical and disciplinary exercises that develop the strength necessary to kick through bricks, and the stamina needed to carefully piece them back together again. Fancy footwork is the forte of Blackbelt Taekwondo Center's head instructor, who in addition to his martial arts mastery has also taught dance since 1987. In classes geared for ages 4 and up, he instills students with confidence and energy to climb the belt ladder from white to black as they perfect taekwondo's physical buffet of rapid attacks.

Bohemian Hall & Beer Garden's shaded confines have been around since 1910, and not much has changed besides the trees’ height. Guests still flock to the garden year-round to gather around steins of Bohemian brews and plates of potato pasta with sauerkraut. The chefs serve food straight off the garden's grills when the weather allows, and the result is an atmosphere that feels more like a backyard party than a restaurant. Rows of tables encourage socializing, and live music frequently adds to the revelry. On colder days, guests can linger in the hall or try to cram their feet into oversized glass boots for extra warmth.
