Cafe Triskell, Astoria, Queens
I was so happy to discover recently that Cafe Triskell is still in business. You really can’t take for granted that restaurants will be there when you return. Perhaps it is a testament to how wonderful this little restaurant is.
First of all, the chef and owner of Cafe Triskell is Philippe Fallait. He is from Bretagne, France and he opened his restaurant in 2008. The cuisine is what he calls French comfort food. I’ve had the mussels and fries as well as a crepe and other foods which I don’t recall. But I always return.
The atmosphere as well as the personality of Philippe and the very tasty and genuine French cuisine makes this place a no-brainer to return to. Oh, the prices are very good as well.
It’s easy to get there by the N or W subway train that is only about one block away. Open hours are Wednesday through Friday 5pm-10pm and Saturdays and Sundays he’s open for brunch and dinner 11am to 10pm.
