London Lennies Rego Park NY...

i have not been to london lennies in some time, and a friend of mine is in town who loves fish... is this still the 'local' go to for good seafood or are there better options in the area?

Butcher in Queens?

all the good butcher's of forest hills have closed/moved. koch and nord was an amazing place however theyre long gone, then there is homestead which is still around on lefferts, and 'gourmet meats' was reasonably priced and their prepared food was great but the owner sold the business and opened an iavarone which is what i would recommend... they are a chain of 'high-end' butchers.

feeling a little cranky about delivery via TakeOut Connection in Forest Hills

the service is good if you have the time to wait, however i have never had any food delivered in less than hour from the time i ordered... the problem lies with parking at most of the locations we like, there is nowhere to park and risking a $165 ticket for a $40 dinner isnt worth it for us, so we still use their services... i recall back in the late 90s there was a rival service but i dont remember the name and have not seen any advertisements from them in a long time...

Glendale Is Hungry

glendale definitely has a shortage of good places to eat, however atlas park has manor oktoberfest which is now opening up in forest hills where the old PJ's Steakhouse used to be... i am not sure if they will have both locations or close the atlas...

Hot Dogs in Queens...

i had a feeling they were seperate... the food is so different... i prefer the potato pancakes at the bayside one, and the hot dogs at the manhattan location, but the pastrami sandwich at the rego park one...

Sushi in Forest Hills/Rego Park

i have been meaning to, perhaps i will try it next time over tako or megumi... i will report back... (anything i should try in particular?)

Wafa?

i like the addition of the tables outside... the food feels like home-cookin, and the prices are reasonable for the area... the hummus is great.

Buying lobsters to cook on Sunday?

lobster stock is key... best use of leftovers imo. ppl have told me to also throw in some shrimp shells as well, but ive never done that...

Montreal in Autumn...

planning a trip to montreal this fall, its been a couple of years since i've been last... any new places worth checking out? definitely going by 'the keg', and i saw a special on 'joe beef' would like to check that out, and also 'au pied de cochon'... not looking to go by crescent or down ste. catherine... would like to stay in the old montreal area...

Nick's Bistro...

anyone here ever heard of them? are they a completely new establishment? they have been gutting the old 'casa de elian' site, and now they just put up the signs for Nick's Bistro... curious if anyone knows anything about them or if they have a history anywhere else in NYC?

Hot Dogs in Queens...

ive the tried the dogs at five guys, i dont like it that they cut them open, i think all the flavour and juices escape, and they try to seduce you with many toppings... i usually go to ben's best either in bay terrace or in rego park... but not exactly what i was referring to... something more like this:

Asian markets in Flushing - your favorites?

HKS (hong kong super market) in elmhurst... great prices, especially on seafood... parking is difficult, but if you have the time go early in the morning, youll get the freshest ingredients, and youll have parking.

Hot Dogs in Queens...

a long time ago there used to be a place named 'anne's franks and fries' and it served some of the best hot dogs and waffle fries ive had in a long time... theyre no longer in business (for almost ten years now, if not longer) and ever since ive been on a mission to find good dogs and fries. anyone have any suggestions on a grays' papaya type place but in queens?

Baluchi's Indian Just Opened on 5th Ave. btwn 2d and 3rd

i second this, the food there is consistant. i was introduced to it by an indian friend, even though i have seen it there for years i never bothered with it until then, but now when that indian craving kicks in its the go to.
