Maybe I missed it, but I'm surprised there has been no mention of the new place opened up inside of the 59th St. Bridge. Guastavino's is named for the architect resposible for the gorgeous vaulted ceilings inside of this restaurant (the same architect did the work on the Oyster Bar, among other NYC landmarks), and it is perhaps one of the most dramatic sites for eating in the city. It's way too big, though, and I doubt the cuisine will ever live up to those ceilings (so far, at least, it's run-of-the-mill New American). Nonetheless, a really good raw bar, and an outstanding place for a drink. Especially if you live in Astoria and can hop in a cab and be home in 5 minutes...
