Lunch in Queens - easy from Midtown?

NancyC | Jul 4, 2008 09:58 PM

So I've been a little stressed and overworked and want to start taking long lunches when possible. Since moving to Prospect Heights from Williamsburg 2 years ago (near the G), I find I never go to Queens anymore, and am hoping office proximity gives me an excuse.

I'm at 59th and Madison, so I can get the N/R/W, F and E/V, but obviously the N/R/W are closest. Would love suggestions for spectacular (at least, travel-worthy) street food/quick eats near those lines, not TOO too deep in due to time constraints.

I know Google maps is not perfect, but I tried finding restaurants near the FIRST stop on all those trains and did not recognize any of the names from Chowhound. Are there great places simply missing from the map, or must I go further?

I know that the E and F are express to Jackson Heights, but I take the E to JFK and it still feels like the distance to Jackson Heights is pretty significant. Has anyone ever timed the distance from Midtown East to JH? I'd love to try Afghan Kebab House or Rasa Sayang if there's time!

Thanks in advance for any advice!
