Today’s Heart of Queens Ambassador highlight comes from our Astoria Ambassador, Meg Cotner: This is a plate of the Baby String Beans, which has been on the menu at Il Bambino in Astoria since it opened. It’s rumored that there’d be a riot if the dish was removed from the menu, it’s that beloved. The mix of string beans, a cloud of shaved Parmesan, crunchy croutons, and a truffle vinaigrette is pretty much perfection.
