Arthur Avenue

Casa della mozzerella on 187th just off Arthur ave is a must. The fresh Mozz is among the best I've had, and I've had a LOT.
Also, the Arthur Ave retail market is a great stop. Several stores, restaurants and gift shops all in one indoor marketplace.

Swedish couple on their way to the LES, Brooklyn and Queens, pls help!

I live in Rockaway Beach, and the goal of the parks department is to have all 3 of the food concession areas (86th, 97th, 105th) open this summer. The boardwalk will NOT be fixed/open, but in the concession areas, they are building (right now, literally 24/7) skirts of boardwalk, along with normal beach access at each of these locations. Whether or not every food vendor comes back remains to be seen, but the buildings will be operational. The food scene on the Rockaway boardwalk has made great strides in the past 3 years, and I really hope they can all find a way to make it back and survive a makeshift summer. Rockaway will need people to come to the beach this summer and support these great businesses.

The boroughs are the place to be, but there are still some great parts of lower and upper manhattan that have great finds. My suggestions:
Sri Lankan - Araliya in Jamaica Queens
Eastern European - Moldova Restaurant in Midwood Brooklyn
Yemeni/Middle Eastern - Bab Al Yemen in Bay Ridge Brooklyn
Spanish (Spain) - Sevilla in the West Village (Manhattan) - if you like seafood, the mussels in garlic sauce are out of this world
Uzbeki/Turki - Cafe Kaskar in Brighton Beach Brooklyn.

I also have a NYC Ethnic food blog at http://www.newyorkethnicfood.com/

Best of Luck!
