Profile

Bosnians and Brazilians constitute the latest immigrant waves in multiculti Astoria, and both carnivorous tribes have unfurled meat-centric local eateries. At a handful of Bosnian spots like Stari Most—“Old Bridge,” though there’s no bridge in evidence—the spotlight is on skinny sausages and cevapi, ground meat patties. Stari Most’s cevapi are a mixture of pork and beef simply flavored with salt, pepper, and garlic, and they are terrific. Also worth trying is the pljeskavica, or Bosnian burger, which is pounded thin, lightly grilled to perfection, and served on pita-like Bosnian bread. The cevapi and pljeskavica are enhanced by the ubiquitous Bosnian condiments, sour cream and ajvar pimento paste. Stari Most’s sidewalk tables are more inviting than the overlit, bar-sized dining room. But the open-air gaiety goes only so far, because it lacks a beer and wine license. This is a shame, because rustic fare like cevapi cries out for pivo—the word for beer that is shared, and celebrated, by much of Eastern Europe.
