Luna Asian Bistro isn’t the kind of place you stumble upon. Located on the 6th floor of an unsuspecting professional and medical office building, Luna Asian Bistro is a destination for the lucky few who are in-the-know. The eatery offers a mashup of Asian dishes and drinks, with primarily Japanese offerings like sushi and sake. I can’t speak to the food, but the real draw here, is the rooftop. The incredible views of the Manhattan skyline offer the perfect nightcap, no matter what you order. Probably better for drinks

After spending some time at Socrates Sculpture Park, hop across the street to one of Astoria's gems: the Noguchi Museum. The Noguchi Museum is filled with stone sculptures, but somehow manages to escape feeling cold and detached. You can instantly tell there is a deeply personal attachment between the artist and the space. At the Noguchi Museum you’ll find the lower level dedicated to Noguchi’s many works, curated by the artist himself. The upper level, however, includes temporary displays that pay homage to the design ideas and aesthetics he advanced. On one of our visits we found a beautiful display of hanging paper lanterns, as well as an oversized Akari light sculpture formed by stacking 2-foot by 2-foot pyramids. The entire museum creates an intimate portrait of the artist.
