I'm Going to Jackson Heights on Saturday. We will be 3 people and we would like to go to a nice place, and have a good dinner. Any suggestion?

    ah I just remembered: Burmese Cafe could be a nice option(71-34 Roosevelt Avenue)

      I've gotta give a big second to ammel_99's rec of La Portena. Great steaks, big portions, prices are right on and the service is good.

        thanks for the suggestions...one of my friends is a not-too-idiosyncratic vegetarian, are there veggie or non beef options for her?

          They have several non-meat pasta dishes. While I've never tried one, my in-laws have and said they were quite good.

        i know that Punto Fijo is a nice Peruvian Restaurant and that El gauchito is a nice argentinian one, but there have to be other nice places in the heart of Jackson Heights.
        Help, hounds, Good places over there: thai, french, easterneuropean, mexican... a little help out here. By the way, Hounds: which is the best indian in the area? Definitely not Jackson Diner...

          Check out La Portena
          I always had great meals and the prices are very reasonable.

            Consider NOVO Restaurant for contemporary & classic Latin Cuisine and excellent cocktails. Very nice atmosphere, service and prices. They have the evening Specials posted outside on a chaulk board. 78-23 37th Ave.
