Chinese Takeout in Queens Outside of Flushing's Chinatown

Always looking for recommendations as these places tend to come and go. Much to my dismay, Szechuan Cuisine in Little Neck just changed hands and good Szechuan is hard to find (40 East Broadway is of another day). Consistency is usually a problem - good meal one day bad the next I guess varying with the cook.

Lasagna

Lasagna is never good in a restaurant - it should come from the oven in somebody's house. It's the opposite of pizza.

Looking for a Decent Lunch Near Prospect Park Lake

Ideally with a cocktail. Probably on a Sunday if it matters.

Il Nocello in Whitestone?

This place just replaced the spot occupied by the dreadful Martha's Vineyard for years in the Whitestone Village. Has anyone tried it?

Not near Bayside/Flushing but:
I've been going to Bella Via on Vernon in LIC since they opened a few years ago and last month I tried the gelato for the first time - it was outrageously good. I wonder where they get it.

Decent Food in Queens/Brooklyn border..help!

Joe's on Forest Ave (Old Joe's at Woodbine or New Joe's 2 blocks north at Palmetto). Solid old school italian. Old Joe's is a little stark (BYO wine). New Joe's has cocktails and dessert.

Best chinese restaurants in Queens, not flushing?

Szechuan Cuisine on Northern Blvd in Little Neck is top shelf. Even the bathroom is spotless! They do a good job with the Szechuan standards: hot and sour soup, dumplings, moo shu, shrimp with garlic sauce, and the like. It's on the north side of the boulevard about 75 feet east of Little Neck Parkway - 1/2 block past the Scobee Diner.

Napoli II in Whitestone

The owners of Napoli in Astoria at 35th Ave and 33rd St. have recently opened up a second place with identical cuisine in the culinary wasteland of Whitestone. Locals should take advantage of linguine with clam sauce for $7.95, great garlic bread and many fine dishes. One never knows when apparent pizza places have fine "regular food" - this is one of them. It is located on 14th Avenue about 75 feet east of Parsons Blvd.

Sunnyside Grill: great food, reasonable prices - why is this place not packed?

They have a website (http://www.sunnysidegrillnyc.com/) but it's a broken link.

Irish Cottage has a very good burger but it's at least $10.

Anyone tried Sir Vinos in Woodside

There's a new place under the el near the 61st Street subway station that ambitiously offers a menu of pub, pasta and steak. Any experiences out there?
