Easter is Coming - Let's Start with Bear

With Easter fast approaching, you may be thinking about plans with friends and family.  While a lot of you may be going to see the family for the holidays or enjoying it in the comfort of your own home, lots of folks love to go out and celebrate restaurant-style, which is a lot of fun and exempts you of all that messy clean-up.

Lots of restaurants in Astoria are rolling out spectacular specials (and I'll get to those soon), but I first wanted to start with Bear.  Their menu attracted me especially, as it was very very rich and decadent, but also affordable for such an involved meal.  Check it out and if you're interested, I suggest you make your reservations soon.
