      Trying to find out what's in the area??

      All on Grand Ave

      Best Restaurants?? I like CONNOLLY'S CORNER on Grand. I have been there for a burger, and for a holiday meal. I have always been happy with the food and the service.

      place for pizza I like Joey's (sesame Crust)

      bagels CS Bagels

      laundry there are a few places ... not sure which is best.

      burger and a beer CONNOLLY'S CORNER

      craft beers?? Not sure.. mostly Irish bars in the area

      Chinese - all the local places are ok take out -- but for real Chinese -- go to Elmhurst (about a mile away)

      wine bars Hush (not really a wine bar)

      place to just hang CONNOLLY'S CORNER, Hush

      take out?? My fave is Wakumatsu - the local Japanese / Sushi Restaurant

      any thing that's interesting?? It is an old time New York Neighborhood -- great delis (Polish, Italian, and German) limited chain stores. If you drive -- it is minutes from NYC

        My favorite Middle Village restaurant is Uvarara on Metro near 80th. Technically a wine bar, but excellent small plates and entree specials. Good selection of reasonably priced wines as well. I use Iavarone (on Grand, NOT Metro) for meat and cheeses and bread if I don't drive in to Williamsburg. Good luck.

                    Try Danny Boy's on Dry Harbor Road, burger is better than Donovan's and the rest of the menu is great.

                My parents have lived in Middle Village for nearly 50 years. While I don't live there now, my husband & I visit at least once per year. Here are some of our favorites:
                pizza: Rosa's in Maspeth
                bagels: Bagelette (I think it's considered in Rego Park)
                Chinese: Golden Harbor (mostly take-out, only a couple small tables, in Middle Village)
                Anything that's interesting: the following are all in Rego Park, at/near the intersection of Queens Blvd. and 63rd Drive:
                Tangra Wok for Indo-Chinese (Haka noodles and Gobi (cauliflower) Manchurian are great!)
                Istanbul for Turkish (LOVE the vegetarian appetizer platter!)
                Ben's Best for REAL Kosher Deli food, especially the pastrami sandwich
                There are also a number of ethnic food stores on 63rd Drive in this area including Israeli dried goods, Jumbo Market for assorted Asian foods, and several Polish?/Russian? delis and grocers (I especially like the one just south of the LIRR trestle).

                  there are so many rosa's and I just found a third (fourth?) one this past weekend! you got the two on metropolitan and also the one on fresh pond and there might be another one on eliot too. can't remember but I did like the one that's near grand and the LIE; the big brightly lit one with the big sidewalk windows.
