Hi, it's been my dream for a few months to take a subway to Queens one night around 8-9PM, and get off somewhere that would allow me to hit a bunch of fantastic places over 1-3 hours. I saw an article about a guy running these Queens late night food tours in the newspaper, but I can't seem to find it and I bet I could get some recommendations here to just do it myself. I figure I only need maybe 5 good places located within a mile of each other. Hopefully the recommendation would include the one dish to have at each place, as more than that and we will get too full!
My preference would be an area where I could hit as much country variety as possible in a small distance. I would also prefer to avoid Chinese (unless it's extraordinary and right on the route), as I don't really have a problem navigating Chinese food.
Thanks so much for your help, and let me know if you want to come! If I get some research done today I'd like to take my first trip this Saturday night!
