SquareMeal Review of Far Rockaway

bronze award


Big, bold and brash, what was the sprawling Elbow Room now subdivides into a slamming DJ late-lounge/bar and a diner themed on the Irish Riviera – the old nickname for the largest urban beach in the Rockaways area of Queens, NYC. Eye-wateringly lurid visuals and retro icons make for a fascinating, full-on sensory assault – imagine street art, tattoo-parlour designs and crazy collages clashing with skateboards, ghetto-blasters and a wall of 4,000 Marvel comics. Sign up for ‘so-then’ frozen margaritas and ‘so-now’ draught cocktails such as hot bitch. Other possibilities on the far-out list include peanut butter cup (think liquid Reese’s Pieces) and Jojo’s great balls of fire – four rums mixed with cherry and clove liqueurs, absinthe, grenadine, grapefruit and cinnamon. London and Yankee beers, sub-£20 wines, hot dogs and pizzas by the slice seal the deal.
