Last week, our Queens Ledger foodies team visited new sports bar and restaurant, L’estacion Lounge, located in the former Maspeth Pizza House.
Once we walked in, the vibe was electric; even at 1 in the afternoon. There are TVs surrounding the restaurant, lounge chairs and couches to kick back, and a neon lit up bar with an ecstatic bartender.
Taking a look at the menu was another big deal in itself. L’estacion has a wide offering of exquisite cuisine, which includes Italian, American, and Spanish. So whether you’re in the mood for chicken parmigiana with a margherita pizza, wings and a cheese burger, or plantains with rice and beans, L’estacion has it all.
Needless to say, they provided exceptional customer service. L’estacion truly pampered our food team with 6 spanish dishes, 2 drinks, and a salad – all while managing to also attend to their several other customers watching the soccer game at the bar.
Each dish tasted like a home-cooked meal that was made with love, right from a Puerto Rican household. These were the signatures that stuffed us all up:
Pechuga de Pollo en Salsa de Champinones (Chicken breast on a mushroom cream sauce served with rice and fried cassava):
Carne Mechada (Cuban style shredded beef served with white rice and beans and fried plantain):
Mofongo Relleno (Stuffed mashed plantain with shrimp):
Carne Asada (Grilled flank steak served with mashed potato and mixed vegetables):
Pechuga a la Parilla (Grilled Chicken Breast served with white rice and french fries):
Entrant (Skirt Steak served with Mamposteao Rice and Fried Plantain):
But L’estacion has much more to offer other than their marvelous meals. We tried a pina colada that was bigger than our heads, and a passionfruit sangria. The tropical drinks were perfect for their electrifying vibe.
L’estacion took over Maspeth Pizza House around 3 months ago, and just put out their new menu. You can expect exciting upcoming events that will be held at the lounge. To book a table or your next venue, visit: lestacionlounge.com.
