Best of the 7 Line

My lovely girlfriend and I have recently noticed how many great restaurants can be reached via the NYC Subway's 7 Line. With Queens being one of he most ethnically diverse areas in the world, and most of the 7 Line running through it, I guess it only stands to reason. Anyhow I came up with a cool idea for a post thread on the best restaurants within walking distance from each and every stop on the 7 Line. The way this works is below this paragraph I'm going to list all the stops along the 7, starting at Times Sq and ending in Flushing in Caps. Below the stops where I have a favorite (or favorites) I will list them...leaving the others where I simply do not know the area blank. Then for the next poster CUT & PASTE MY LIST INTO YOUR POST and add the restaurants you recommend. Feel free to add into any stop. The more choices the merrier. Have fun with this.

  1. Fun topic.
    69th street: El Sitio (Roosevelt a few paces south of 68th, I believe) for some excellent stews, hearty soups and perhaps the tastiest Cuban sandwich in the city.
    74th street: Burmese Cafe (http://www.chow.com/topics/345913) and that wonderful Indian supermarket on 74th, not far from the Jackson Diner.
    82nd street: the underrated and superb Arunee Thai (37-68 79th street). I haven't been there in a while, but their Tom Yum and salads are fixed in my memory. Never had a bad meal there.
    Shea Stadium: Assi Plaza, on an inlet off of College Point Boulevard, is a gigantic Korean Supermarket, perhaps NYC's biggest. It actually reminds me of some of the supermarkets I've been to in Seoul. Excellent fish market, lots of meats and produce.(this might be equidistant between Shea and Flushing/Main, come to think of it
    )Flushing, Main Street: Wow. Take your pick. Gum Fung, Spicy and Tasty, Mayflower Bakery, the J&L and Golden Shopping malls up on Main, it's all been said many times before. There's a street food guy, selling Halal kebabs on the corner of 40th and Main - have yet to try it but it looks good for what ails you.
    Long live the 7. P.

    1. Great thanks for those recs. I added Polecat's suggestions into the overall list. So for the next poster just cut and paste the list below into your post and add your own. Or I can do the work...the trick is to have a complete list of the entire 7 Line with great food options at every stop when we're all done. Plug away!

      Wow. Take your pick. Gum Fung, Spicy and Tasty, Mayflower Bakery, the J&L and Golden Shopping malls up on Main, it's all been said many times before. There's a street food guy, selling Halal kebabs on the corner of 40th and Main - have yet to try it but it looks good for what ails you.

      1. I would add:
        Donavan's to the 61/woodside station
        Tac Coatzinga to the 74 th street station
        Rincon Criolla to the Junction Blvd station
        Sentosa and Joe's to Main street station.
