Old Bridge

28-51 42nd St. Long Island City, NY 11103 | Astoria | 718-932-7683

Location Description:

This Bosnian tavern serves no alcohol, but you can admire the red leather plushness of the ancient barroom - over which arches a 3-D recreation of the namesake bridge (Stari Most means "Old Bridge"), which was destroyed more than a decade ago in the Bosnian conflict. The fare is simple and usually good, including the hubcap-size burger called pljeskavica, which begs to be dressed with the accompanying ajvar (pimento paste), kimek (crème fraîche), and chopped white onions. The desserts at Stari Most are also memorable, but skip the bureks, which are sometimes a bit limp.
