(continued from Yesterday's thread on the Manhattan boards)
So Diner #1 and his companion want to eat in Eastern Queens, but they want to try something they can't find in Long Island. So no Italian. And they need to be able to have wine with dinner.
The daughter of Diner #1 is squeamish about Asian food. So no Flushing; no Laifood (my personal choice).
The son of Diner #1 is curious about the Persian restaurant on the L.I.E. service road somewhere near Fresh Meadows. Has anyone tried it? Do they allow/serve alcohol?
Companion of the son of Diner #1 is still Vegan, so no El Gauchito or similar steak-based options.
Anything else out there that is both special-occasion and non-Italian?
