Movin' to the Kew

I read through the old threads and the restaurant prospects seemed a bit bleak in Kew Gardens. Would love to hear favorite restaurants, take-out places, etc. All price ranges, all styles of cooking. We have a car so we can travel to surrounding areas to. Thanks!!!

    1. I started one of those posts that Chris VR listed (used to post under the name gravitch) - and after eating at a few of the places in Kew Gardens I found in the end that Mood was the only one worth eating at. Austin Ale House has a great beer selection but the atmosphere leaves a lot to be desired, but it's nice in the summer when the patio is open.

      Since you have a car, I'd definitely recommend going to Forest Hills for a few places - Nick's or Dee's pizza and 5 Burro.

      1. Ah but we've all forgotten the most important thing. Have car will travel. Flushing is 10 minutes away, as is Elmhurst, Corona, Jackson Heights. Why you're in the center of the known world.

        1. Where you lack in chow, you win in great cinema. You have the only decent cinema house in all Queens (all others think that Queens residents are only worthy of Jerry Bruckheimer likes). I hope it's still open.
          Even if you don't have a car, there are tons of great places off the subway line. JH, Elmhurst, and don't forget Regostan.

            Kew Gardens Cinema is indeed still open and still great. Right down to the real butter on the popcorn (to make this post chowish). Only art house in all of Queens.

              That's a great news - thanks, Al!
