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.

Corona Pizza-
(1971-2000) Flushing
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 Ices—Right across the street, the BEST Italian ices in the city of New York.

Ben’s Best is now best Deli in New York City.
96-40 Queen Blvd.- Rego Park
Tel# 1800-236-7237
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.

Auellino Pizza
97-03 64th Avenue- Rego Park
Tel# 718-459-0632

Across the street from Ben’s Best and almost equal to Corona Pizza.

Goody’s Chinese Restaurant-
94-03 63rd Drive – Rego Park
Rego Park
Tel# 718-896-7163

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.

Mickey’s 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?

Peking Duck
107-12 70th Road-Forest Hills
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
Tel#718 520-1123
A traditional restaurant run by a family from Italy and Spain. Great Seafood, beautiful setting, and good wine list. What more do you want?

Nick’s Pizza
Off Ascam Ave. Forest Hills (menu did not have an address)

O.K. it is gourmet pizza and it’s 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
