>Our favorite restaurant started out as Lil Bistro 33 in a space that only sat 15 people (no exaggeration) — moved to a nicer/bigger spot, dropped the “Lil” to become simply Bistro 33, and is now about to blow the hell up because it is being used as a location for a scene in the upcoming season of Ugly Betty. They sent an email announcing the good news because it means they’ll be closed for business a day or two for filming. I’m so happy for them because they are a truly amazing dining experience treat. If you ever find yourself in Astoria, you really should drop in for a bite.
Thanking the good lord Chef Gary remember us from the Lil days and knows we refer every person in the universe to this favorite spot of ours, so maybe he’ll save us a seat when the lines are out the door.
