I will be traveling to DeeCee and NYC later this month and can't wait to check out some of y'all's recommendations. I will certainly try to visit the DiFara Pizza Palace as well as some of the new and old haunts in the neighborhood of my birth (Forest Hills).
But what else should I truly endeavor not to miss? I will be staying with relatives in Flushing and Great Neck and will certainly also be venturing into Manhattan as well.
Please note that I will be on a tight budget though I may be taken out for lunch and/or dinner at least once.
Any and all suggestions would be appreciated. Truly open to all types of food. I know that this may not be specific enough and I have been culling suggestions from the boards but I had to throw out a general invitation since I have such great respect for all of your opinions.
What I'm looking for is the one place you would recommend to your best friend (of limited means) who had one meal in NY. Not just the place but what to order and when to go. Any particular server to ask for or place to park?
Being a true New Yorker, I have my own favorites up my sleeve but it's been awhile so I need fresh ideas.
