Arcos does this delicious Portuguese stew packed with “way more seafood than I would believed possible,” marvels myclawyer—clams, mussels, fish, shrimp, and calamari in tasty orange sauce, a bargain at $16.95.
Also recommended: fresh-baked rolls and lemony, delicious shrimp sautéed with garlic. Overall, myclawyer adds, this year-old restaurant in Astoria is “very very good,” if not quite up to the best of Newark’s Ironbound district.
Past reports praise Arcos’s chouriço (pork sausage), bacalhau à brás (salt cod with egg and potato), and carne de porco à Alentejana (pork with clams), among other things.
