Sripraphai Thai Restaurant

Reviewed By Manuel P - Woodside, New York

This restaurant has a huge menu, and I do suggest you be careful when adventuring with new flavors and meals. Spicy foods are very spicy, even when they reduce the spice, and some fish dishes have a lot of bones within them. Everything tastes wonderful, and when I go with the family I often end up also eating the spicy food that a friend did not think would be so spicy... :-) My recommendations: the sauteed pork is wonderful, as is the green mango salad, and the different variation of Pad Thai are worth having on repeat visits.

Zum Stammtisch Restaurant

Reviewed By TerrapinLady - Middle Village, New York

Treat yourself! Dining at Zum's is an experience. For starters, the goulash soup is amazing. The German salad consisting of beets, onions, carrots, coleslaw and cucumber salad is the best. The wurst platter, with German potato salad...awesome! There are no words for the jaggerschnitzel. Thank you, Aurora for your wonderful service! Prosit

Rosa's Pizza

Reviewed By Lou S - New York City, New York

While in the area with my wife and daughter we wanted to try something new and different so we came here to Rosa's Pizza and we loved the variety of the slices they had to offer. My wife and I had the upside down Sicilian witch was fabulous and my daughter had the tomato and mozzarella slice that she really enjoyed. 5 slices and 2 drinks were 18.25 $ . That's reasonable for NY. Parking can be a little rough depending on what time you are here . Would definitely recommend and return. Next time I'll try a main course because I really liked the sauce

Located in Corona section of Queens it’s a bit off the beaten path but the restaurant is worth the trip. Make reservations well in advance the place is always packed. The food is outstanding. Healthy portions are provided. The service is old school and professional. Nice wine list.

My husband and I had lunch at London Lennie's on a Saturday afternoon. The lunch special I had was one of their specialties, Battered and fried fish and shrimp with french fries, all delicious. An individual loaf of bread came with pats of butter and cole slaw came with the meal as well.

DeStefano's Steak House

DeStefano’s was established as a tribute to the DeStefano family and all those families that made the borough of Brooklyn and the Williamsburg community a great place to live. Our goal is to pay homage to the simple values of faith, family, and friends that are evidenced by the strong sense of unity in the Williamsburg community. It is with great pride and pleasure to serve nothing but the best of what life has to offer and to share with our guests a piece of Brooklyn’s history, as well as our own. So sit back, relax, and enjoy your dining experience. You’re one of the folks.

From the moment we arrived (reservations were made) the exceptional service remained genuinely welcoming. Thank you, Joy!

Moving on...
I have indulged at least once a year and splurged for a proper steak at few staples but wow, this was a treat such a treat for my palette.

The filet mignon and porterhouse (for two) were absolutely delectable, cooked perfectly (medium). The kids were impressed with how tasty and "not chewy" it was We took notice, Joy neglected the steak knives, but we didn't require them. The steak was like butter, really!

The appetizers and sides ordered were all delicious, with the exception of the crab cakes. Who comes to a steakhouse for seafood anyway? The creamed spinach and mashed potatoes were amazing. The string beans w/ pancetta were fabulous. The asparagus wrapped in bacon was so good, even the kids consumed them.

We anxiously await the next visit to try other cuts of meat. WOW!

Pete's Grill

Reviewed By LuxuryLoverWA - Mandurah, Australia

Impromptu visit to Pete’s as a recommendation by our hotel and it was a good one. Service was exceptional and food quick to be delivered.
Fajitas Combo was fantastic with a very large sampling of beef pork and prawns with a great selection of vegetables included. Served sizzling on a cast hot plate.
Fried Chicken was also excellent but the vegetables as a side were brilliant

LIC Market

Reviewed By nyspeedbird - New York City, New York

I stumbled on LIC Market one day and it quickly became one of my favorite restaurants in the neighborhood. It is relatively small but has a pretty outdoor courtyard in the back and comfortable seating. The menu is consistently interesting and always features many locally grown/caught choices. I'm a particular fan of the risotto, grouper (or whatever market fish they're offering), and carrots with carmelized onions. The wine and beer list is not extensive but it has a decent range of choices and is fairly priced. They also sell Transmitter beer, which is a local craft beer that is excellent.

Peter Pan Bakery

Reviewed By Joe M - Tokyo, Japan

Oh my. Super delicious donuts. Went on a Sunday morning and waited about 5 minutes in a long but fast moving line before ordering some donuts to go. There is also counter seating if you want to eat in. I ordered about a dozen various donuts and most of them were very good. I could make this place a habit.
Prices were very reasonable.
