This March 9, 2013 photo shows one of many ethnic restaurants in Astoria, in the New York City borough of Queens. "Best Burek in Town" reads the canopy of the Djerdan Burek restaurant and bakery, which serves food from the Balkan region, including bureks, which are coils of yeasty, flaky dough filled with ground beef, spinach or cheese. Astoria and the adjacent neighborhood of Long Island City have much to offer tourists, from moderately priced hotels to museums, waterfront parksand lots of ethnic food. (AP Photo/Beth J. Harpaz)
