A new chef and a sprawling, double-sided menu have landed at Katch Brewery & Grill

Executive chef Andrew Weisel’s warm Brussels sprout and kale salad.

Until now, the Astoria bar Katch Brewery & Grill hasn’t been known for its cuisine, but executive chef Andrew Weisel has hopped aboard to change that.

Based on what I tried, it seems like he’s done a great job of developing delicious dishes that pack some serious flavor.

Here were my five biggest takeaways after hunkering down for dinner at their outdoor patio:

  1. The PB&J wings are, in fact, delicious.
  2. The warm Brussels sprout and kale salad is the solution to any finicky eater’s refusal to eat their greens.
  3. The art of the traditional baked clam—lots of breadcrumbs and herbs—is not dead (I’m looking at you, Delmonico’s Kitchen).
  4. You can make an amazing sorbet just by freezing a peach and whipping the inside around a bit (OK, it’s probably more complex than that, but that’s what the chef told me).
  5. If you are a sober individual, do not order the kombucha.


My guest thoroughly enjoyed a cocktail called Marisa’s Thing Thing, made with Purity Vodka that had been infused overnight with real pineapple and served martini-style.

With fifty beers on tap and menu items like Lagunitas fish and chips and beef sliders topped with mac and cheese to choose from, you’ll probably need to make a couple of return trips to cover all your bases.


Manhattan with a Twist

An upscale sports bar has come to Astoria, Queens and is winning the hearts of foodies, sports fans, and beer connoisseurs alike. Katch Brewery and Grille on Newtown Avenue is a great place to enjoy gourmet food, craft beers, and a friendly, infectious atmosphere. With gorgeous outdoor seating and the entire restaurant equipped with flat screens, you will want to make Katch your new home away from home.

The menu has a wide variety of classic bar items with a delicious twist. Items like the Guinness Mac and Cheese and Katch Linguini are a fan favorite, while the chef’s specials will wow any palate. The Katch Linguini is creamy and packed with fresh prosciutto and is absolutely delightful.

If you save some room for dessert, you have to try the Tiramisu as it is the smoothest and creamiest you will ever taste. However, if you’re in the mood for something a little more daring, try the Flaming Fried Ice Cream, which is coated in caramelized nuts and deliciousness — absolutely amazing!

As for the beer and cocktails, Katch offers a wide selection of draft beers, all categorized to be very consumer friendly. The cocktail list is fun and inventive, using fresh juices, interesting spirits, and even adding in some ciders and brews just for fun.

Make Katch Brewery & Grille your go-to destination for the best entertainment, sports nights, and gourmet bar food. With a great staff, fantastic chef, and owners who make you feel like family, you will not want to miss out on this great hot spot!

Katch Brewery & Grille is located at 3119 Newtown Avenue.


NoMad gets new upscale eatery featuring local ingredients

NoMad has a new dining destination: Rose Hill, an upscale American eatery that features small plates meant to be shared and local, seasonal ingredients from Chef Keith Geter, who was at Artisanal, Picholine and Brennan’s Seafood & Chophouse.

Rose Hill features a 46-seat dining room, an adjacent coffee bar that will serve drinks later in the day — and a lounge that will open in the fall. A rooftop lounge is also in the works.

The cocktails are from Roberto Rosa, formerly of Bathtub Gin, The Plaza Hotel and Experimental Cocktail Club.
Rose Hill comes from culinary/nightlife impresarios Philippe Olivier Bondon (Yacht Club St. Barth, MPD, Le Ti St Barth) and Frederick Lesort (Opia, Frederick’s, Matisse) who are teaming up for the first time.

The restaurant will be open from breakfast through dinner and late night. Morning offerings include smashed avocado toast, and Brûlée Grapefruit. There’s also brunch, lunch and dinner offerings, including cider glazed pork belly, chestnut pappardelle and fresh-house made sheep’s milk ricotta, fig and stilton flatbread.

That La Esquina won the Don Julio Judges Award for best taco in Montauk, at the Dan’s Taste of Summer “Montaco” event at Gurney’s Resort last weekend while 646 Gig Shack — a local favorite that created the original ‘Montaco” — won the Corona People’s Choice Award. Full Disclosure: Side Dish was one of the three judges.

For the contest, La Esquina created a Crab tostada Maryland Crab, mango Pico de gallo and Avocado spread, followed by a Pork Belly Carnitas tostada, with avocado mousse, pickled red onion, and a roasted peanut and chile de arbol sauce, which gave the kick . . .

THAT that Katch Astoria, a sports bar and grill, has a new owner, Bill McSorley, who is creating backyard “summer speakeasys” Thursday nights. IT kicks off July 13 with retro cocktails and classic black and white films.

Watch This Season’s Football Games at These 6 Winning Sports Bars

Here’s where to find refreshing beers, tasty bites, and good times—because not all sports bars are created equal.

It’s finally, unofficially fall, objectively the best season. All the things that make life worth living are about to start. Apple picking! Leaves changing! Halloween! Basically the whole earth is doing Gilmore Girls cosplay, and we are extremely here for it.

And though not everyone may agree, another totally crucial part of fall is watching football—or, at least, pretending to watch while you down tap beer and spicy Bloodies with your fantasy league at an NYC pub. But not all sports bars are created equal. So we’re sharing our favorite step-above spots to watch the game with as many other fans as the fire department will let in one room (don’t worry, it won’t actually get that dangerous). Go team!

Finn’s Corner

There’s a lot to love about Finn’s, a smallish Fort Greene sports bar. It’s got big windows, a good beer selection, a rotating whiskey list, and a nice community vibe where it’s totally fine to yell at a complete stranger (key during sports!). It’s also popular with Brooklyn celebs like Jessica Williams, who has been known to drop by for NBA games. Most important, Finn’s has TVs you can see no matter where you’re sitting. True, the place has got its quirks—the seats fill up fast, for one—but for my money, it’s the best, most local-feeling sports bar in the city. 660 Washington Avenue, Fort Greene

Croxley’s Brooklyn

To the extent that anything can be a hidden gem in Williamsburg these days, Croxley’s is it. Tucked away about a block from the water on Grand Street, this place looks slightly suspicious from the outside: Is it going to be gross? Too loud? Too full? No! It’s perfect. Cavernous, with plenty of TVs, a great beer selection, and absolutely killer buffalo cauliflower (vegans FTW!), it’s the ideal spot to meet your crew to watch the game. 63 Grand Street, Williamsburg

Katch

Located conveniently between the 30th Avenue and Astoria Boulevard train stations, Katch has a huge outdoor space where you can enjoy the crisp fall air and watch your favorite teams. It also has the one thing you really want in a sports bar, which is an absolutely ungodly amount of TVs, like something out of a 1980s music video. 31-19 Newtown Avenue, Astoria

Bohemian Hall and Beer Garden

Astoria’s Bohemian Hall and Beer Garden is the closest thing you’ll get to a real biergarten in New York, mostly because large outdoor spaces are at something of a premium here (i.e., they’re hugely expensive). Somehow, we’re blessed with Bohemian Hall’s mind-bendingly expansive grounds, its great selection of real German beers and food, and its frankly generous decision to show American football. Note: There’s not a huge number of screens for the size of the space, but it’s a great sports-watching experience. 2919 24th Avenue, Astoria

Whiskey Tavern

The Chinatown location of Whiskey Tavern is a fun, welcoming dive where you’re likely to see an entire softball team after a big game, finance bros shooting picklebacks, and some deeply misguided couples trying their best to have a first date. It’s the richness of life, all together! Plus, the tavern airs sports very loudly and serves huge and cheap baskets of tater tots—and its outdoor space is covered! This last point is especially key on those rainy, unpredictable fall days. 79 Baxter Street A (between Bayard and Walker Streets), Chinatown

Sláinte

Sláinte is an Irish pub with a neighborhood feel in a neighborhood that, at times, doesn’t feel much like a neighborhood. Which is to say, if you’re strolling down Bowery toward the Lower East Side, past the dozens of extremely fancy bars with extremely small plates, you might think you need to double your salary to have a snack and a drink while watching the game. Sláinte to the rescue! This very relaxed spot has a great bunch of bar snacks on the menu and plenty of space to hang, and it generally makes you forget that you’re in one of the poshest places in the world. 304 Bowery (between East Houston and Bleecker Streets), East Village

Roger Clemens son opens new Houston restaurant Katch 22, no sports bar

Luke Mandola Jr., the eponymous son of a major player in the Houston restaurant scene (Ragin Cajun owner Luke Mandola Sr.), and Kory Clemens, the son of a Major League Baseball legend (Roger Clemens), are the ones calling the shots at Katch 22, Houston's newest "sporty restaurant." (It's emphatically, according to the owners, not a sports bar.)

Katch 22 opened on May 15, the 29th anniversary of Roger Clemens' Major League debut. Kory Clemens and Mandola Jr. seem to be fond of this sort of symbolism. For example, regarding the restaurant's name: Roger Clemens was also big on Ks of course naming all his kids (Kody, Kacy, Koby and Kory) with the letter that signifies strikeouts in baseball.

On top of that, Mandola played catcher in college. And 22: That was Roger Clemens' number of course. And also the date of the month Mandola Jr.'s son was born on.

"There's not a lot of places in Houston where you can get an outstanding meal, good wine, nice cocktails meshed together with a sporty setting."

And, just in case you still don't quite get it, the eatery boasts 11 (half of 22 — I know, math can be hard) flat-screen TVs.

CultureMap touched base with Mandola Jr. in his new digs — the invitingly well-lit space at 700 Durham where tapas bar Convivio used to be.

"It's about good food, good times, spirits, family and friends," Mandola Jr. says, indicating the phrases emblazoned on the chalkboard wall behind him. The restaurant's decorated with sports memorabilia, including a few signed Roger Clemens jerseys.

"There's not a lot of places in Houston where you can get an outstanding meal, good wine, nice cocktails meshed together with a sporty setting," says Mandola Jr., who believes the restaurant is on par with Michael Jordan's Steak House in Chicago and Mickey Mantle's Steakhouse in Oklahoma City.

Instead of bar food, Katch 22 focuses on "steaks, flat breads, chops, gourmet sandwiches, nice appetizers."

"In this business you have to hang your hat on four items to be really successful," Mandola Jr. says. In Katch 22's case, those items include the lobster roll from Kory Clemens' native Boston ("our menu is developed on what we like to eat, what we grew up eating") and bacon-wrapped quail.

"We're looking for the general public to determine the other two," Mandola Jr. says. "The palate of the city will change our menu. Whatever they like, we'll kind of go in that direction."

With a fair share of supporters having followed their own careers, Mandola Jr. and Kory Clemens' believe Katch 22 can be a hit right off the bat. The restaurant's open Tuesdays through Sundays ("closed Mondays for golf and fishing").


Drinks—And Food, Too, in Astoria, Queens

The slow-roast duck and beans

The big draw for the brunch crowd at Front Toward Enemy is the punch, though there are certain rules and regulations to the bottomless booze: Each person gets one drink at a time, and the drinks continue until all the plates are taken away.

"We just want people to have a good time and drink responsibly," said co-owner Scott James Teague. "If you get cut off, the whole table gets cut off."

The flavors of the punch rotate. During one visit, the punch served was either with gin or tequila. Both tasted akin to lemonade, but the gin option was better by far.

The menu includes the standard brunch fare, including poached eggs Benedict ($14) and brioche French toast ($12). Slightly unique is the slow-roast duck and beans ($14).


The New Menu at This Astoria Sports Bar Is a Real ‘Katch’ - Recipes

The following is an extension of the article printed in the August issue of Boro Magazine. I have added a few images and descriptions for the readers of Amuse*Bouche.

If Midtown West is notoriously known as Hell’s Kitchen, then Western Queens could quite easily adopt the moniker of World Kitchen. While Queens has longtime been famous for its ethnic culinary diversity, a recent boom in restaurant openings has fervently affirmed that claim. In fact, on Urbanspoon, Astoria and Long Island City have more restaurant listings than Hell’s Kitchen and Williamsburg combined. Read on for a spotlight on four recently opened neighborhood heavy-hitters, as well as a preview of several more that have already or are scheduled to be open within the month.

Basil Brick Oven -- 28-17 Astoria Blvd, Astoria (718-204-1205)
“The pizza was invented in Naples, and then we developed it in the North,” grins Danielle Balbos, pizzaiolo and executive chef at Basil Brick Oven Pizza. Owned by Joe Giannola (who also owns neighbor Twirlz Yogurt Bar), the pizzeria features an astonishing pizza menu, along with a few antipasti, pastas and panini inspired by Chef Danielle’s home in Piemonte, Italy.

“When you truly, really love doing something, how can you possibly go wrong?” asks the owner of his talented pie-master.

The Lunch Box -- 25-17 Astoria Blvd, Astoria (718) 932-4400

When childhood little league buddies get together to launch a restaurant in their hometown, what concept could be more fitting than The Lunch Box? Featuring a throwback to classic all-American favorites – like fried chicken with mac-and-cheese and a loaded pastrami sandwich – Lou Romano Trujillo and Louie Diaz have struck a winning combination. The “All-In” Burger could rival, if not topple, the top contenders on any “Best of” list, with a juicy, charred 9 oz. ground steak patty loaded with barbecued onions, smoked cheddar, crispy bacon, fried egg and a dollop of guacamole on a toasted brioche. The Lunch Box, whose front window is a mini museum of lunchbox memorabilia, also offers lighter fare, like a grilled fish wrap, watermelon-blue cheese salad and a full juice bar with smoothies and shakes. The joint feels like a real New York neighborhood hangout – high quality, no-nonsense food with a backyard patio featuring a small stage for local performers and a mounted movie screen for televised sporting events and special features.

It has been a long haul for husband and wife owners Al Lau and Michelle Addeo, but despite a few significant road bumps (including a neighborhood organization protesting their liquor license), Sugar Freak has officially opened its doors, revealing one of the most lovingly designed interiors along 30th Avenue.

Salt & Fat -- 41-16 Queens Blvd, Sunnyside (718) 433-3702

Despite the attention-demanding name, this Sunnyside hotspot features inventive new American small plates, all created at the creative whim of Sunnyside native Daniel Yi. Dinner service starts with a bag of bacon fat-popped corn, but ends with mini jugs of cran-yogurt probiotics.

And be sure to save room for equally unique desserts, such as the lime panna cotta with avocado ice cream.

Alobar—With craft beer, old and new world wines and an extensive charcuterie list, this highly anticipated addition to Vernon Boulevard looks deliciously promising. 36-42 Vernon Blvd, LIC.

Bareburger Ditmars󈟧-01 31st street will soon be the newest outpost of this neighborhood favorite, which really needs no introduction. People go nuts over it, and it’s easy to see why.23-01 31st Street, Astoria.

Just Burgers—Got an after-hours build-it-yourself burger craving? This Ditmars kitchen is open until 6am on weekends. Jump in to add basil pesto aioli or caramelized onions to your patty, frank or quinoa veggie burger with a side of sweet tater fries. 33-01 Ditmars Blvd, Astoria.

Malu—With dulce de leche ice cream and watermelon sorbet to chocolate covered pretzels and Swedish fish, this new “mom and pop shop” in the heart of LIC is a can’t-miss. 12-09 Jackson Ave, Hunters Point.

Side Door—Bistro 33 has officially split into two distinct locations, with the bistro focusing on French-inspired cuisine, while new sister restaurant Side Door explores fusion sushi like the apple jack roll (with shrimp, apple and cinnamon), or the orange curry scallop roll, along with other Japanese classics. 19-33 Ditmars Blvd, Astoria.

Skinny’s Cantina—The Lee brothers, who brought us Asian hot spot Shi, have turned their focus on their newest venture, this time with a Mexican flare. 47-05 Center, Blvd, LIC

William Hallet—Feels like a New England tavern with a uniquely new american menu. 36-10 38th Ave, Astoria.


Mets games in Astoria

Hey guys - what are some of the best bars to watch the Mets play in Astoria?

I watched the game there last night, sound was on, bartender is a fan, open seats at the bar.

Sweet. They have a tasty burger too.

Doyles sometimes has a good crowd but nothing great and no sound.

Gleason's has put sound on a few times that I've been there and a few Mets fans from the softball league I play in go there a bunch.

Other than that, I'm looking for places myself.

Katch was great during the playoffs last year but I've never been during the regular season.

During the regular season, Katch shows different games/sports on various screens. It's hit or miss as to which game will be shown on more screens.

Kelly's has one small tv screen, but the old timers are all hard core Mets fans. If you don't mind chatting with some seniors of Astoria, it's quite fun.


College Football bars?

With College Football roughly two weeks away, I was wondering what are the go to bars for people to watch games on Saturdays? I don’t care about team specific bars, just places where some college football fans can talk sports, get drunk, and scream at the TV.

I get drunk and yell at my own tv every Saturday during college football season like the good lord intends

But then no one can see your jorts and laugh at your tears?

the owner at 3308 said he is going to put a real effort into getting good specials going on Saturdays. Has a ton of TVs and all the channels, so, there's potential there.

Katch is your best bet for a true sports bar. Plenty of TVs, space, food is solid and they usually have pretty good beer options

Astoria sucks for college football. If you go into the Sweet Spot on a Saturday evening you’ll see preseason NHL and UFC before you’ll see any college games. Not sure about Katch - but I have never gotten a good college football vibe from anywhere in Astoria. Maybe that is changing? I hope.

There are MANY college football bars in the city though. They have them by team, by conference and any niche you can think of. I personally prefer sitting on my couch to watch games, but I used to go to various college bars in the city back in the day before you could stream any game you want.
