  1. do you have a car? da silvana on yellowstone blvd and clyde has great italian food.

    1. No,Car is it accessible by subway ? thanks , much

      1. i thought i replied earlier. it's hard to get to by subway from flushing but if you take the e/f/r/v. at continental (E/F)(and there's a bus but i don't know the number which will go there -in front of the grocery and vitamin store). it's a good walk. as for steak houses, people always talk about jack's in bayside.

        1. In and around Flushing, Graziella and Puccini for Italian and Uncle Jacks for steaks.

          The Q13 bus leaves from Flushing Main St and goes up Bell. The Q28 goes up Francis Blvd - you'll have to walk a little bit for Puccini.

          1. You mentioned Chinese in the title. There's loads of Chinese food in Flushing. I wrote up a WikiTravel article about Flushing that listed some (and I hope some Chowhounds edit it to post their favorites). Anyway, Spicy & Tasty (39-07 Prince St., north of Roosevelt) is positively the best Sichuan-style restaurant in New York and my favorite Chinese restaurant in New York, overall. Laifood (38-18 Prince St., corner of 39th Av., one block north of Roosevelt Av.) serves interesting and worthwhile Taiwanese cuisine. Unique Pastry, 135-23 40th Road (between Main and Prince Sts., one block south of Roosevelt Av.) is a great place to get cheap, delicious bing (Fuzhounese sesame buns) for breakfast or lunch. Do a search of this board and you'll find a lot of other recommendations.

            1. re: Pan

              Laifood changed a while ago to Lu's Seafood and may have changed again. I passed by Friday afternoon and noticed that while the awning still says Lu's, the menu now says 66 (but includes a section headed "Lu's Specials"). Still offers numerous Taiwanese dishes, though.

              1. re: squid kun

                That's interesting because I was able to find the information about Laifood's address and phone number on superpages.com within the past couple of days. Do you have any idea whether the management or/and cook are the same?

                1. re: Pan

                  Don't know about management, cooks, etc., but the name changed to Lu's after the place closed for a few weeks last summer. If a phone company directory still lists Laifood, maybe at least part of the original ownership remains involved (though I'm not finding it on Superpages right now). I do, however, find listings for Jolilu Inc., which may be the business name. When were you last there?

                  1. re: squid kun

                    Probably about 14 months ago, which is quite a long time in restaurant years. :-)
