I'm meeting up with a few fellow henna artists this weekend and want to give them a tour of Jackson Heights (henna artists tend to be South Asia-philes) and also a meal, but we need a place where we could hang out for maybe 2 hours to talk and henna. Ideally, we'd like a place with decent food (South Asian) where we could also hang-out, but we would be fine eating somewhere good, and then moving onto a cafe to hang out. We will all be walking so it would be great to hear about something close to the main drag of JH or within 10 minutes by foot.
Also, if there are any chowhounds who want to meet up wherever we end up going and get some henna, we'd love to meet you. Email me and I will let you know where we will be.
