I try to keep away from lashon hora, but I can’t hold it in anymore. The Cup is the worst restaurant in Astoria.
No – it isn’t just that the food is bad (actually there’s a Mexican place on 30th Ave and around 29th St that is far worse; and there’s a Chinese place on 23rd Ave also on 29th that, seriously, is serving poison) it is the WASTE. What a perfect location! Right across from the Moving Image Museum, right near the big-ass mainstream cinema, near the subway… And what a sizable place! And the food is just….awful!
A good writer cites examples, but I don’t want to remember the dread of putting their food in my mouth. How do you fuck up french fries???! Ugh.
I know I’ll be going there again – the location is too perfect – but I’m only ordering toast and soda.
