But what about a panini instead?
Il Bambino, which literally translates to "the boy" in Italian, is tucked away in a small Astoria storefront. Don't let the fact that it's crammed between two other restaurants fool you, out back is a spacious, relaxing patio perfect for a lazy Sunday brunch.
When it came time to decide which brunch panini I wanted, I literally had to do "eenie-meenie-miney-mo." No joke. Everything just looked too darn good.
I was only able to finish half of my monster panini, but I didn't mind having leftovers as a mid-day snack.
