My grandma in Rego Park has agreed to let me take her out to the cuisine of my choice in relatively close driving distance from her apartment (Elmhurst, Flushing, etc). I was planning on going to Southern Spice until I heard that it had moved. Two most important criteria: Must be delicious/noteworthy (along the lines of Spicy Mina, Chao Thai, Southern Spice), but more importantly must be relatively quiet and the tables not packed too tight. This is why I thought Southern Spice would be a good choice, where as Chao Thai may not be (even though I'm dying to go back there!). I took her to Sripraphai over the summer, and she was a good sport about the noise, but I could tell she would have preferred somewhere where we she could hear us better.
Any recommendations? All cuisines welcome. Thanks!
