  1. A good red sauce Italian "Family" place is Manducati's,
    I went on an early-in-the-week night and the place was
    empty but on the weekends it's supposed to be jumpin'.I
    heard that Pearson's BBQ is somewhere nearby and rumor
    has it that it's a destination worth seeki

      Pearsons beek ribs are probably the best in the 5
      boroughs (texas style-REAL smoky) but it is more
      take-out than restaurant. Manducati's is great but you
      might encounter a wait-their half hour is an hour.
      There are some decent Irish pubs on Queens Blvd. in
      Sunnyside if that is something you might consider.
      The Orchard - 41st south side of QB and P.J.Horgan's -
      42nd north side of QB. Good pints and reliable pub
