any ideas for LI City, is it a black hole for food?

  • r

We've looked up the 3 or so listings in Jim's book and it's been too hot to feel a strong urge for heavy Eastern European food. My wife just started working there and would love to find someting better than the standard deli down the block. Any ideas would be welcome

  1. Manducatis and Manetta's, both on Jackson Avenue, are fine Italian choices. The Waterfront Crab House, next to the ferry to Manhattan in the southwest corner of Queens, is also fun. For something fancy, there's the Water's Edge.

    1. I understand there is a Bangladeshi enclave in that area. Maybe there's something good there....
