Good Chinese

I'm in Millburn. Am looking for good chinese in a short driving distance. Need not be authentic but that would be a plus. HELP!

Buying a new range. Help.

My husband's only issue with the Legacy was that for the price he'd have expected the doors to be more substantial. They don't seem to seal enough for his taste. I worry I'm getting tied up in the esthetic's of the unit. I'm a sucker for a vintage look. The largest thing I make every year is the Thanksgiving turkey which is never over 21lbs. The 44" Legacy would fit that.

I've never had a convection - toaster oven aside and all I've used it for is for frozen pizza and a quick chicken drumstick meal. The few times I tried making cookies with it, it was a total fail but then again I'm not the best baker in the world.

Buying a new range. Help.

not enough space for a wall oven. Would have loved that though. No issue with cookware as the pieces I have work both induction and gas. I'll moan the loss of roasting my peppers over flame. Budget doesn't exist for a Salamander let alone the space.

Dad was European. Much of my growing up involved a roasted vegetable dish and well seasoned steak broiled. I don't have a grill so this is my salvation. I'll also use it to make vegetables quickly and to make creme brulee. I seem to be one of the few people in this world that loves having a broiler.

Buying a new range. Help.

I'm an old school type of cook. My favorite stove/oven was a 1950's number I had in the apt we rented when I was a teenager. Gas all the way. When I started looking at ranges, and knowing my cooking style, I wanted at least 5 burners not crowded on top of each other and a broiler. I like my steak. Every oven is convection now with multiple functions. I'm cross eyed. I want something that heats evenly and cooks my food well. I don't bake often.

Come to find that broilers are a dying breed. After researching ad nauseum I'm at a total loss. I budgeted $2000 for this and then ran into a AGA Legacy 44 inch discounted (floor model) and drooled on myself. I can make my budget fit (and my kitchen design as I was looking at 36" ranges) but is it worth trying to do so? I don't really k now anything about it. Everything I've read online has mixed reviews and that's for everything from Ktichenaid to Wolf.

Then I'm wondering, should I make the jump to induction?

So knowing what I just wrote down can anyone give me some direction here?

Group of 12 - Early Dinner in Astoria or thereabouts

With the exception of Asian food, where would you recommend an early dinner that would be able to accommodate a group of 12.

Late lunch/early dinner for group

My daughter's baptism is in Astoria. Family group of 10-15 will be going out to eat afterward. I'm looking for suggestions. I don't care if it's a private room or not. Prefer something reasonable in price. Will travel to Brooklyn as well. Most or Queens is open. Seeing as the family is from NJ they'll have to drive back afterwards and the only issue I have is parking. Dinner will be about 3/4pm on a Sunday.
