Lunch near Belmont Park
Sad to say not much near by. If you like Chinese, I recommend Orchid in GC
730 Franklin Ave # 2
Garden City, NY 11530
A bit pricey, but worth it. IF you like Indian, there are, I am told, good Indian Restaurants on Hillside Avenue in the 250-270 street range. Having never tried one, I can't confirm that.
Incidentally, I work at the track so I am familiar with the parcity of restaurants in the area.
Ask on the tri-state board about the Indian restaurants on Hillside, not very far into New Hyde Park. The only place I've eaten at is Madras Woodlands (1627 Hillside) a south Indian vegetarian. In atmosphere, it is a far cry from the long gone and lamented upscale original near the UN, but the dosas are pretty good. There are a bunch more on that strip.
