Lisa (and anyone else who cares to pipe in):
Have you been to marino's brick oven pizza 163-01 29th ave 539-0097? It's run by the owners of a nice Italaian market (next door), and all ingredients are thus ultra-fresh. They make a great chopped tomato square slice, and even their regular slices are primo.
Also, I assume you know donovan's on bell boulevard for great cheeseburgers (gotta ask for sauteed onion)
Newsday's Sylvia Carter likes the food at Arigato 221-02A Horace harding Expressway at Springfield Blvd bayside 423-2888
But...big question...has Mediterranean Grill 192-02 northern blvd 357-2500 gone downhill, as I've heard? it was for a while the best greek in NYC (and I'm an Astoria resident, so that's high praise), but I've heard reports of bad meals there.
