Amazing ethnic spot for a party of 10?

I'm sure Wafa would take a reservation for 10.
Her food is fresh & delicious! It's not far off the Jackie Robinson so coming from Bklyn is not that tedious.

Chowhounders - Please give me what you got :)

Based on your liking Blue Smoke I would suggest Mable's Smokehouse In Bklyn/Williamsburg.
Great food and vibe.

Does Peter Luger take walk-ins?

That's a crap shoot. I will tell you that slipping the Maitre D' a twenty and a five should greatly decrease your wait time.

I thought this was a pretty interesting article. Pizza looks good though! It's a block from the water.

Eats near Colden Auditorium?

Aquista Trattoria is fairly close by. As Robotron said, there isn't anything very close. Good solid Italian neighborhood spot.

Best BBQ

Been to Mable's three-four times. Always get the combo platter. Solid Ribs, Brisket and Pulled Pork. Good sides also. Good iced tea also..

Best BBQ

We mostly rotate between Dinosaur for ribs (Harlem -haven't tried the new Bklyn outpost yet) and Mabel's Smokehouse for their combo platter.
Also love Hill Country in NYC for brisket and smoked chicken.

I can't go there without getting the spicy cold noodles and cumin lamb. I know it's boring but oh so good...The sliced pork belly with chili garlic sauce is also a favorite.

What is the best Churasscaria in Queens?

This one is in Mineola. Not far from Queens.
Good, not great. They've been around a long time now and are pretty popular. I haven't been in a number of years but enjoyed my visit there.
