speengar shish kebab house, the afghani on 69th street near roosevelt in queens which I raved about in my book and which had been the best place in town for Afghani is TERRIBLE now.
Don't go, you've been warned!
I don't know where to get this (one of my very favorite cuisines) any more. Caravan in theater district closed, Kabul in Huntington is downhill, I don't like the midtown Afghanis, don't even talk to me about the sillyness of Khyber Pass on St. Marks (Indian food shaped like Afghani).
There used to be some ok places on Main Street in Flushing, but I haven't heard about anything really exciting there lately.
