Holiday Party Queens/Manhattan: Spanish food

I completely agree about Jora. The food is quite nice and the people working there seem to really want to make sure you have a nice experience.

Which Flushing supermarket has the freshest seafood?

Park's Seafood is very fresh. It's in Whitestone which is pretty close to Flushing.

places to eat in long island city?

Casa Enrique...food is great...especially the guacamole and the lamb shank. Noise level is a bit much since they have bare walls and hard floors.

What to Order at Sripraphai (Queens)?

I like
Naked Shrimp (if you like raw shrimp)
Crispy Watercress Salad
Chive Dumplings
Fried Snapper w Lemongrass Sauce
Chinese Broccoli w Crispy Pork

For some reason, I don't like their noodle dishes so I stopped ordering them.

Jidori chicken in Brooklyn at Qoo

I always enjoy Qoo Robata. I agree the Takowasa is good. My other favorites are shio saba, ankimo, kakuni and karaage. I think the pitchers of beer are a good deal too.

Takesushi in Sunnyside--a fortunate addition to the neighborhood

I'm glad you tried it and got a good deal!

Funny, I think $20 must be his standard price for a tray...I've bought different things and somehow, it is always $20. BTW, if you ask for something and he tells you that he's not sure if he has enough for service, ask him to recommend what he thinks is good to take home. I've gotten nice stuff from him that way.

Takesushi in Sunnyside--a fortunate addition to the neighborhood

Funny, I feel the same way about Linn and agree that Takesushi is at another level. I also like that the owner at Takesushi seems very interested in providing value to his customers. He explained his philosophy around lunch and why he made it partially self-service. He wanted to offer quality food that is unusual in Queens and keep it affordable so that people might experiment with food they never tried before. They'll also sell you fish to take home and cook too.

I went this weekend and thought it was great. Not a fancy place but the quality of the food was fantastic. They have a uni toro donburi special now through the end of February, which is what I had. The uni and toro were both very fresh.

Alobar and John Brown Smokehouse in LIC

I quite like Alobar, but then again, I tend to like heavier food...I like pork belly, not loin...chicken thigh, not breast... What I really appreciate is that the tables are separated from each other; I understand there is a cost to this but it makes the experience so much better. I hate it when I feel like the people next to me are part of my conversation and I can't block out theirs. I particularly enjoy that they don't rush you out, since I prefer to eat and drink over time.

sign for original Gloria's pizza from flushing coming to forest hills?

They started delivering recently so I thought I'd give it a go. I remember it being better (albeit i was just a kid) but it's still pretty good. They are a little pricier that some of the other deivery options (I usually order from D'Angelo's, they're not great but serviceable) but I though it was worth it.

Anyone have brunch at the Astor Room?

So we walked by Sanford's and as warned, there was a wait. We didn't feel like hanging around so headed over to 30th Ave because someone wanted to try William-Hallet. It was really quite good. I had the Country Fried Steak which was very tasty. The service was good too.

Thank you! I'll probably reconsider my choice.

I'm having brunch in Astoria next Sunday and am considering the Astor Room. Has anyone been there for brunch and if so, how was your experience?

Astoria Recs 2012

Tried HInomaru Ramen a couple of times now. Definitely a good addition! I've gone with a group and I was surprised that the noodles themselves are different - not just the broth or toppings. I found that very unusual because even in Japan, the noodles are typically the same style. The chicken karaage was very good too.

City Island

It's been a long time since I've been there, but I used to always go to Sammy's Fish Box. Not the best food, but I found the atmosphere to be fun.

Good Prime Rib in Queens or Brooklyn?

I agree about Waterfront Crab House. I can't remember the price, but remember that their steaks were a great deal. If you order the prime rib, ask for extra jus.
