Located in the Kaufman Astoria Studios complex in Astoria, New York, the Astor Room draws in foodies both local and farther flung with its subtle twists on continental fare and inventive takes on classic cocktails. Originally built as the commissary to the movie studio opened by the legendary Adolph Zukor in 1920, the restaurant is a living, breathing piece of cinematic history and a trip back in time to a glamorous bygone era. From the moment you descend the original marble staircase, polished to a warm sheen beneath the feet of the many iconic actors who’ve come before you, you know that you’ve just stepped into a very special space. Soft light subtly bounces around the room, reflected in the golden-hued terracotta tiles and the polished wood of the old-fashioned Beaver Bar. Live music whispers in your ears as you take a seat at a cozy table, perhaps in the same spot once filled by Douglas Fairbanks and Mary Pickford. Elegant and inviting fine dining at its best, the Astor Room is a spirited celebration of great food and inspired libations, served amidst a captivating and convivial setting.
