For the next Queens Dinner Club, a meal will be served not from one specific country but from an area surrounding a body of water. The Bay of Bengal is bordered by India, Bangladesh, and Burma. Have a meal at The Astor Room that encompasses dishes from all three countries collaborated on by authentic local Queens restaurants.
