Extravaganza Caserias in Woodside

Edward Aretz | Dec 20, 2003 08:25 PM

I happened to go to Extravaganza Caserias in Woodside tonight by mistake. I was looking for a South American place with a doll house. The food was outstanding. It is located at 33-15 56th St (corner of Broadway) 718-565-6454. I checked to see if anyone else had reviewed it, but I guess I am the first.

We had our toddler with us so we only had a fast meal. The place is big with valet parking. I guess they have a night club that is adjacent for the Extravaganza. They serve a basket of bread with arepas to start. The arepas weren't very good. My wife had chicken in wine. The sauce had lots of fresh tomatoes in it. On the side was excellent rice and maduros. I had the seafood soup. It was full of fresh seafood. It was like a great bisque. I would get it eveytime. It was served with rice and fried plantain.

The rest of the food served there was very attractive and smelled great. I recommend the place, but would appreciat if others could post their experiance and tell me what else to order.

The place is festive with a very good mariachi trio that strolls around. They gave my daughter a balloon and popcorn.

Can anyone tell me where the place with the doll house is?
