An all-you-can-Russian buffet might sound like a punch line, but the food at Astoria is no joke (though at $8.95 for lunch and $12.95 for dinner, it is a steal). Those who crave hearty Russian staples such as borscht, beef stroganoff and latkes will be more than satisfied, but be sure to try a few unfamiliar dishes: Golubtsy, beef and rice wrapped inside cabbage leaves, are compulsively edible; and the Uzbek dish honan is the love child of pork dumplings and lasagna. Chase it with one of many Russian beers or a bracing shot of icy vodka and be glad the Cold War is a distant memory.
