new sushi coming to Jackson Heights

Happy Kitchen is barely adequate when you desperate for sushi and unable to go anywhere else. I have found Tomo to be a significant improvement. Pretty good sushi comfort food.

Bonfire Grill on Austin in Forest Hills?

If a salmon "burger" doesn't come with a bun, isn't it just another piece of salmon?

Where to buy humanely-raised/organic/anti-biotic-free meat?

Dines Farms no longer has a stand at the JH Greenmarket. Apparently, the owner is having some issues with the people who run the market. You can find him every Thursday after five at the JH food Coop, at the church at 34th Ave and 81st (I think that is the cross street.) He is planning on setting up shop sometime on the weekend at the fire hydrant at 77thSt. and 34th Ave. However, as far as I know, he hasn't started yet. Your best bet is to email him when and where he plans to be.

By the way, the meat is SPECTACULAR. Well worth the pain it is to get it.

Dosa Place? (JH, old Dosa Diner spot)

Same owners as Dosa Diner. When walking by, my wife and I noticed that Dosa Place was opening up. Asked what the deal was, and they said its the same people, etc. Hope its still good! Very strange.

New and Untested in Jackson Heights

Tomo is definately a welcome addition to the neighborhood. I've had food from there 3 times, and enjoyed it every time. By far the best sushi in JH region. I have to admit however, it's not worth making a trip out to Jackson Heights for.

Indo-Pak pizza at Famous Pizza in Jackson Heights?

Hey, they also put me on hold too. And they always give me rediculous delivery times: the last time my wife called, they told her it would take ONE HOUR!
Honestly, I don't even like the pizza that much. The Indo-Pak is the best pizza on the menu, and its only ok. The quality of the crust is poor. Just not worth it.

Terraza Cafe in Elmhurst/Jackson Heights

I read about Terraza Cafe on Gleane street in Elmhurst/Jackson Heights. Has anyone been there? Desperately looking for a fun, cool bar in Eastern Jackson Heights.

Peppino's Pizza in Jackson Heights (former Thomas' Pizza)....what a dissapointment!

Thomas' Pizza on 76th St and 37th Ave has been somewhat recently sold off and renamed Peppino's Pizza. We had been long time customers of Thomas' and since the transition have found the new pizza to be of declining quality and worse off, the service has followed suit. After a recent incident (details to follow), we have decided to never order from them again and use other pizza places in JH.

A few weeks ago we ordered a pizza pie from Peppino's. After it was delivered, we discovered that 1/2 of the pizza order was wrong. We called back, and after getting fairly nasty attitude, managed to explain that they needed to bring a replacement pizza. Once the 2nd pizza arrived, again, 1/2 of the order was wrong (the other half). So, essentially, we had to combine 1/2 of each of the 2 pizzas to make up our original order. However, the owner (who delivered the 2nd pizza) insisted on us returning one of the pies!! Who does that?? First, off, both orders were wrong. Second, again, who does that?? He wasn't going to re-sell the pizza (it was already past their closing time)...so it was simply to show off his attitude. At the end, we went upstairs, combined the 2 halves to make up our original order and brought back the wrong 2 halves to him.

Not sure what he accomplished, aside from Peppino's losing at least one long standing customer! Never again!

P.S., we miss Thomas and his wife (bickering and all)

Bars in Eastern Jackson Heights

I've lived in JH for six years, and the bar scene is basically non-existent, except for the aforementioned salsa clubs and gay bars (which can be booming on a Saturday night). It's a shame, because I have no doubt that a good pub would get booming business.

Your best bet is to walk or take the train down to Woodside. There are several good pubs down there.

Best of Williamsburg?

I agree. I've been twice. The first time, it was ok. The second time it was pretty dissapointing.
