Sorry for the short notice, but I'm having dinner with a relative from out of town tonight. Looking for something causal, not too expensive, but decent. IMO, the food in Queens leaves much to be desired. I was looking at Dante's Restaurant on Union Tpke. (never been there), Salerno's in Richmond Hill (which, I just read, has gone out of business, so forget that), or a diner as a last resort. I'm limited to Forest Hills (I'd like to avoid Austin St.--can't park), Kew Gardens, maybe Glendale, western Bayside (not Bell Blvd--too crowded), Fresh Meadows, maybe Floral Park, Oakland Gardens. Preferably a quiet place where we can talk and won't be rushed through the meal. Italian, American, maybe Chinese.
I know I'm limiting in terms of geography and it's short notice. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
