Off night at La Flor

Looks like it'll be a long while before we go back to LaFlor. Too bad. It really was good once upon a time.

Janie, I found the website. Now how do I find an email address for the place?
Thanks.

Perhaps not, but at least it will make some people wary of eating there. And yes, I will try to email the restaurant, Not that it will help probably.

At that point I just wanted to leave. We may go back again, but not for a long while.

My husband and I ate at LaFlor in Woodside last night. One word, YUCK!
We had eaten there many times over the years but not lately.
Lesson...never, never ,never order off the main menu. Order specials only.
Our mistake. They have a horrible chicken dish called pan seared chicken.. This mess shows up with some awful glop as a sauce.
Grilled chicken breast was tough as shoe leather. Mashed potatoes had no taste. I didn't eat the chicken. Told the waitress.
This moron did not offer me anything other than a salad. I'd already had one, by the way. And didn't even take the item off the bill.
And the tomatoes in the green salad were way over ripe.
Sorry La Flor, you've lost 2 fairly frequent customers.

Timmy's by the river

This place is on York Avenue at 91st street. It's a diner. Should have a thriving business being opposite
Asphalt Green and a large ball field.
The food is awful. The coffee is dreadful. The place was empty at about 1030AM yesterday morning.

I had ordered a Greek Salad after seeing the ingredients listed on the menu. They forgot green peppers on the menu.
I'm allergic. I know I'm being silly. I did tell the waitress. All she said was "Sorry". No mention of I'll try to have them
removed.

Now to the coffee. YECCH!! I ordered decaf. It tasted like a cross between dishwater and Sanka, with the emphasis on Sanka.

Please avoid this place like the plague.

recommendations for restaurants 2nd or 3rd avenue, 20's to 30's

Anyone have any recommendations for restaurants in the 20's or 30's on either second or third avenue?

Moderate to high prices are okay.

Also, anyone know anything about the Cafe Vartan at 34th and 2nd?

thanks
