Need a Dinner Rec in Kew Gardens/Forest Hills

Hi, friends of mine are getting married at the Kew Gardens Court House in late June, need a recommendation for a nice to very nice place in the surrounding area (KG or Forest Hills) to take them to afterwards. If anyone knows Danny Brown on Metropolitan, I'm thinking of that style or something similar...any cuisine. Much thanks!

Need Korean BBQ Recommendation in Flushing

Hey, I live in Flushing, right off Northern Blvd & I'm constantly seeing Korean BBQ places, some stay, some go...which ones are really good? I went to San Soo Kap San a few months ago and really liked it.

Need Sushi Recommendation

Hi, I'm looking for some recommendations on a good sushi restaurant that's reasonably priced, reliable in quality, and has an intimate atmosphere where tables aren't on top of each other. Any part of town would be fine, especially Chelsea, Upper East or Westside, East or West Village, SOHO... This is for a Tuesday night. Much thanks!

Where to get Lobster today?

Hi, I'm in Queens and looking to devour a simple steamed lobster in the 2 lb range, today! I know of the place in Red Hook and The Lobster Joint in Greenpoint, but both are closed on Mondays. Other than me steaming or broiling my own (which I may end up doing), what are the options? If you've been to Jordan's or Nick's in BK, are they still a viable option? Thanks...

Quiet, semi-private spot in LIC?

Hi, I'm going on a first meet 'n greet tonight and we'd like to find a place in LIC. Somewhere with a nice bar, maybe some food (but not the main thing), and a calmer, nice atmosphere. You know, the kind of place where you can find a corner to talk in and order drinks.... Much thanks!

Looking for Good or Decent Indian on 6th St

Hi, I'm such a fan of Indian food, and I'm used to pretty authentic stuff in Queens (Flushing and JH), so to ask for something on 6th St. is kinda alien to me....BUT, I'm going out with a friend in that area and she asked for Indian on that street, or very close. Any recommendations? I heard that Banjara and Brick House were both good, but seem a bit pricey...thoughts?

Chelsea bar/restaurant rec needed

Hi, I'm looking for a very casual place to meet someone for the first time. A place in Chelsea, closer to the west side would be great, one that has a nice bar and perhaps a little to eat too...small plates, snacks, appts, whatever. Much appreciated!

Looking for Great Seafood Spot on Court or Smith Street

Hi, I'm going to be walking around the Cobble Hill area tomorrow and I'd like a recommendation on a seafood place or at least one that has good, simply prepared fish or other seafood on the menu. This is for someone that is not eating meat and likes her food very simple....

Seeking Lunch Spot around 20's/30's & Park Ave.

Hi, I'm going on a 'first meeting' with someone that works in the 20's and Park Avenue for lunch. I'd like a reasonably quiet spot with a low-key but nice atmosphere and not overly expensive (no more than $20 per person). ANY cuisine would do...

Thanks for your help!

Decent Indian Food in Flushing?

Hi, typically I go to JH for Indian food, but I live in Flushing and wonder if anyone has had any good Indian food in this area...or any somewhat close surrounding areas such as Fresh Meadows, Kew Gardens, or Bayside perhaps?!? I know I'm asking for a lot....

Need First Date Location on UES, any cuisine!

Hi, I'm seeking a relatively quiet, nicely lighted 'first-date' restaurant of any cuisine (Italian, French, 'American', Greek, Spanish, or any kind of mediterranean, etc...) that has a reasonably good wine list. We both love a good red wine with our meal. This place shouldn't be too expensive, maybe no more than an average of $20 an entree. ANY help is greatly appreciated....

Long Island City Wine Bar? Lounge?

Hi, I'm looking for a relatively low-key place to hang and have a drink in LIC. It could be a wine bar, a lounge, or a restaurant that has a nice bar. If they had appitizers that would be great too, but not necessary. Much thanks!

Looking for Atmospheric, Cozy, Ethinc Spot for B-day

Hi fellow Chowhounders, I'm looking for a relatively high-end ($200 or less for 2 including wine) restaurant for my birthday....the food needs to be absolutely wonderful, and the atmosphere sublime. I love all kinds of cuisine (Indian, Moroccan, French, Italian, Seafood, some Asian and 'American') and especially love dessert! Any part of town is fine, but would prefer downtown area, east or west. Much thanks!

Frozen Custard in Queens or ?

DiFara's Closed by DOH, where can a pizza-lover go?!

Yes, I heard it this morning on NPR....the DOH has closed DiFara's yet again! So, the question I have is, where now? I have read the reviews on Totonno's, Nick's, Dee's, Una Pizza, etc.... but who puts fresh oregano, basil and ground parmesan on the pizza while it's pippin' hot I ask you?! Actually, can anyone in the area confirm that this bad news is actually true? thanks

Difara's on the weekend

I went on Sunday (Easter) and my wait was approximately 30 mins. I was the only one at the counter for about 5 mins, then a line formed almost immediately. This was at about 3pm. Husband went nuts for it, can't stop talking about it!

DiFara's open today?

Because it's Easter Sunday I'm thinking he's closed. Tried to call, but we all know you can't get through was busy. Anyone know if he's there today? Much thanks!

Wonderful Wine Bar or Small Plate Eatery with Wine?

Hi, I'm looking for a truly great, laid back, not super high-end, wine bar for tomorrow night. It can be anywhere in the Manhattan, and finger food or small plates would be great too. Also, if not a 'wine bar', how's about a small plate restaurant that has a good wine list?! Any help greatly appreciated.
