Choose My Lunch: Driving from NJ to JFK airport and need an earlyish solo lunch

dimsumfan | Aug 24, 201107:22 AM     8

Driving in a couple of days from Parsippany to JFK, needing to be at the airport about 12:30pm. So, I need a place that's unique and delicious that can satisfy a solo diner and be accessible enough to get me to JFK at 12:30. (Maybe it needs to be open at 11am?)

I really wanted to get to Di Fara again, but they don't open until noon, and then a long wait. Mapquest routing doesn't have me going through Brooklyn, but instead 495 east toward Flushing and then south to JFK. Willing to go to Brooklyn, but Queens might be better.

I prefer bold food and like most anything ethnic, with hole-in-wall better than finer dining. If there's a counter to watch a chef cook or pull noodles or anything interest, that's a bonus, but not necessary.

Very open-ended request, but will appreciate any and all suggestions!
