Queens Restaurant with PARKING

I want to take my 92 year old aunt out to dinner for her soon to be birthday. It would be be much easier if I could find a decent restaurant with parking. Almost any kind other than fast food would do.

Thanks.

    Plenty of restaurants with parking. How about Sapori D'Ischia? They have Valet. As does Piccola Venezia.

      That's what I was going to say: Piccola Venezia receives consistently positive reviews for its old-schoold Italian cuisine on this board and elsewhere, and they're known for their valet parking

      Not knowing what part of Queens you prefer, here are a few. Although not exaxtly Queens, Peter Luger in Great Neck has valet parking. Conti's is an Italian restaurant opened by an ex m'd at Piccolo Venizia and is on Northern in Little Neck and has a valet. King Umberto in Elmont has a large municipal lot across the street from the restaurant.Jack's steakhouse on Bell blvd has a valet.Ben's Deli is in the Bay Terrace Shopping Center and although it gets crowded there is plenty of free parking.

          London Lennie's (seafood) on Woodhaven has valet parking and no steps.

            London Lennie's used to be a favorite of an elderly aunt of mine, when she lived in Woodhaven. I wasn't that impressed - it was ok, a bit expensive - but those meals weren't about my preferences. She was comfortable and liked the food there. She also enjoyed going to an Italian place on Metropolitan - is it Alberto's? I never took her there, but I assume it's an old-school place.

            Do you have any preferences at all in terms of neighborhood, cuisine, price range? Queens is a big place.

              Sapori D'ischia is superb and parking is a cinch. They also have valet, which really seems unnecessary in that area. Make sure your aunt wears a sweater in case you are seated near the fridge.

                  If you're looking for something interesting but less formal, the municipal pay lots are not a bad option. There's one on Prince Street a half block from Spicy and Tasty in Flushing. There's also one behind Stamatis, the reliable Greek place on Broadway in Astoria. (I find their food to be good if you don't go late when they start to run out of things.) There is also Greenfield, the big Brazilian churrascaria on Northern Blvd. around 108th. It's rather festive, and they have a lot with valet parking. There's also the big place down under the Queensboro Bridge. What is it River Cafe? I haven't eaten there, but it might be a good kind of place for this.

                    There's a relatively unknown catering hall that also works as a restaurant when they're not booked. It's called Linden Place in Flushing, on Linden Pl, close to Northern Blvd. They have a rather large valet parking facility, so you'll never have to worry about parking. I've been there for lunch several times as well as several catered events. Their food is surprisingly fresh and delicious. Also a fun place might be Greenfield, which is a Brazilian Churascarria on Northern Blvd. as well, closer near the 120s I believe. They've got valet as well.
