I moved into Forest Hills a few years ago and between my subway stop on 71st and the subway stop on 67th towards Rego Park are a handful of Kosher places where the fronts are all walled up or heavy curtains cover the windows so no one can see in or out. Also no menus are outside. So from my curiosity stems three questions. First, why so secretive? What's with the walls and curtains? Second, are they any good? What kind of food do they serve? Third, since they seem so forboding and uninviting to anyone who doesn't already know the answers to my questions, would I be welcome, or would I be treated as an outsider? I'd apprecriate any answers you guys have. Thanks!
Just for a reference, some of the names that I can think of are King David, Da Mikelle II, and Gan Eden. There are others, but they escape me.
