Shortly after the New Year began, John and I enjoyed our first meal at Bistro 33, a small neighborhood restaurant featuring a fusion of French and Japanese cuisine. Given the location in Queens, we were pleasantly surprised with both the quality of food and the buzzing atmosphere. (Both times we’ve gone, the restaurant has been fully occupied with a line out the door.) On our first visit, we were wowed by seared foie gras ($9) and innovative sushi rolls ($8-18), and determined to return again soon.
Last week, we finally made it back. Instead of sushi (which I couldn’t turn down before), I branched out and started with something seemingly appropriate for this time of year: crispy crawfish!
