Dear Foodies, 2/23/01
Playtime is now over, Manhattan and Brooklyn have dominated this board for far to long. Now it is my turn. The following restaurants are the best of the best in my area. Follow my advice and you will be a happy camper.
51-23 108th Street
Te; # 718-271-3736
Lone before thin crust Pizza was in vogue Corona was making pies for both the stadium and TV staff of the people who covered the U.S. Open in Flushing Meadows New York. Their hot heroes are first rate, served on fresh crispy bread.
Corona IcesRight across the street, the BEST Italian ices in the city of New York.
Bens Best is now best Deli in New York City.
96-40 Queen Blvd.- Rego Park
The son, Jay Parker used to work on Wall Street and was helping his father run the business during a long illness. He quite Wall Street and kept the business, with the demise of Pastrami King in Kew Gardens (favorite judge/cop hangout) he is now the king of New York! He caters for New York political folks residing in Washington.
97-03 64th Avenue- Rego Park
Across the street from Bens Best and almost equal to Corona Pizza.
Goodys Chinese Restaurant-
94-03 63rd Drive Rego Park
Their Dumplings, Casseroles and Chef Specialties will wonder why you would even bother to make a trip to Chinatown. Even the NY Times knows about them.
Mickeys Place Japanese Restaurant Rego Park
101-16 Queens Blvd.
Hands down one of the best Sushi places in the city. My Japanese cousin by marriage was very impressed. Need I say more?
107-12 70th Road-Forest Hills
Order two dishes and both will be excellent. Old timers who has provided great services for over a decade.
The Family Restaurant (Neapolitan)
110-80 Queens Blvd. Forest Hills
A traditional restaurant run by a family from Italy and Spain. Great Seafood, beautiful setting, and good wine list. What more do you want?
Off Ascam Ave. Forest Hills (menu did not have an address)
O.K. it is gourmet pizza and its great. Really a wonderful pizza experience. Good, reasonable beer and wine list. If you prefer traditional go to A.J.(by the slice) a couple of blocks down Austin Street.
God bless, and Good eating ..Lou from Queens
