        I work in LIC.... where is Sal, Kris, Charlie deli located? Do you know if they deliver? Thanks!

        1. re: jenniebnyc

          Sal Kris and Charlies is amazing-- located on 23rd ave? (right before ditmars if you're coming from LIC) between 34 and 35th street (I believe.. just had another great sandwich from there last week- phone number is 718-278-9240.. I'm not sure if they deliver though... sorry for not being sure about everything... :)

      2. For excellent fish, I would have to recommend Taverna Kyclades on Ditmars Blvd. Simple preps but always fresh and wonderful.

          1. for all the is the brick cafe?

              Brick Cafe is consistently good, though not one of my top 5 in the neighborhood.

              1. re: ceeceee

                been twice, first time was good, can't mess up chicken and pasta though, second time was scary. food was unmemorable. go for a glass of wine and then move on.
