Sparrow and Sage General Store on Diners Drive-Ins and Dives
Image by www.theparkette.com
A friend of mine, Harlan gave me a little nugget of interesting foodie gossip that I wanted to share with you. Having to do with our neighborhood and some of our most beloved go-to eateries such as the Sparrow Tavern in Astoria and Sage General Store in LIC, I found out that these two under-the-radar establishments are going to be featured on the popular Food Network series, Diners Drive-Ins and Dives with Guy Fieri.
At first this tid-bit was just a rumor but both locales have confirmed their participation in the series. Sage's episode will air on Monday, 1/17 at 10:00 p.m. ET and Sparrow's is still unannounced.
While most of you are probably very familiar with both establishments, just to give you a little refresher, The Sparrow is an under-the-radar speakeasy tavern, featuring some of the best burgers in town, while Sage is home to fresh, locally sourced food and unique specialty brunch pizzas.
I hope you enjoy the episodes and tune in to support Astoria and LIC in their foodie stardom.
