Best Vegetarian Pot Stickers / Dumplings / Gyoza you've had in Queens?

These (the link I sent you listing the vege offerings) are steamed dumplings. They also have a couple vege pan fried (see menu). I went once when it was newly opened on a Friday night and it was packed. Excellent dumplings.

Inexpensive ethnic CLEAN newish restaurant in Queens?

BKNY Thai is also a great option.
We were there on Saturday. Fantastic Crispy Duck in Basil Sauce.
They also have their own parking lot which is nice...

best calzone in ny area?

I had a dynamite spinach/ricotta/mozzarella calzone @ Sunnyside Pizza on 40th Street & Queens Blvd. last week. They make all calzones from scratch so expect a 15 minute wait. Their regular slice is pretty good also!
You can try one while you wait for your calzone.

Mama Lee: Taiwanese in Bayside

Hey Dog!
Let me know when you plan to go. I'm real close and it would be great to get together. I think the last time I saw you was @ Nick's Pizza on Bell Blvd. You were with your Mom. Had to be over ten years ago...His other place Vesuvio in Whitestone is gone... We'll grab the Zen Foodist to join us if her busy schedule allows!
Regards,
John K.

Thai in Queens

One of the places hardly mentioned here is BKNY in Bayside.
Great for large groups and decent cocktails from the bar.
Their crispy duck salad and curries are top notch.

No place in my area sells chicory (the lettuce)

I still see the old timers picking the wild chicory on the side of the Cross Island by Utopia Pkwy Zen Foodist!
My German grandmother used to make a chicory salad with bacon, onion & hard boiled egg. She would pour some of the hot bacon drippings over the salad to soften the bitterness of the chicory..
