April 14, 2018 Joeann Galban

Middle Village is a mainly residential neighborhood in the central section of the borough of Queens, New York City, bounded to the north by the Long Island Expressway, to the east by Woodhaven Boulevard, to the south by Cooper Avenue, and to the west by Mount Olivet Cemetery. A small trapezoid-shaped area bounded by Mt. Olivet Crescent to the east, Fresh Pond Road to the west, Eliot Avenue to the north, and Metropolitan Avenue to the south, is often counted as part of Middle Village but is sometimes considered part of nearby Ridgewood.

This place is just good and always good. I have visited multiple times for years and quality is a seal for them. Eat here and get the fried plantain stuffed with meet, shrimps and chicken. Good price, good presentation, great flavor, nice portion, good service, fast, quick. They mean business and they deliver good gastronomy. Enjoy. Very recommended!

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.

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!

Bruno's Restaurant

Reviewed By Geezers_on_the_Go - Washington, DC

From the moment we walked in we were impressed. The atmosphere was welcoming, the staff cordial, and the menu offered a great selection. We found this through Trip Advisor so you can believe it is really good. Our recommendations are: Mescaline w Gorgonzola and Walnuts, Fried Calamari, Linguini DeMare, Veal Piccata, and Sole. They have a Pizza oven which we would have loved to try - their selections were great. Best experience in Jamaica and Howard Beach NYC.
