    In the interest of efficiency, if you go to the Upper East Side location of Shake Shack, you'll be able to walk right over to Two Little Red Hens for your cheesecake after your meal.

      For Latin, go to Caracas Arepa Bar. For a meal to remember go to Momofuku Ssam Bar and then go across the street for desert at Momofuku Milk Bar. Trust me do these things and you will be happy you did.

        You might want to post on Outer Boroughs board as well - that will help with your Queens choices.
