Dinner on Staten Island

yes and I'm looking for something new - is it wrong to post again looking for same area? It was 2 years ago and I'm not from the area so I don't know what is new/closed/good/bad...or is that frowned upon on boards?

Bakery/coffee place in LI - forgot name - HELP!

On one of my trips to NYC we went to a coffee/bakery in LI - totally old school inside, time stopped at 1942 or something. Had espresso and a pastry - all good except the surly servers...which I can not be bothered by.

I can't remember the name at all and want to go back in 2 wks when I come for visit after doing a walking tour.

Can any help me - thanks

Hound from outta town!

Live near the Staten Island Mall looking for pizza to be delivered

I have stated on SI at a hotel about a mile away from the mall and had great (at least I thought) pizza from this little family owned restaurant. It's in a strip mall near a Chili's I think.
