I will be in Forest Hills. Is there anywhere worth eating?

    Go to one of the bukharian BBQ places--Cheburechnaya is supposed to be the best. It's officially in flushing, but very close to FH, I think.

        Bukharian restaurants have a variety of hechsherim, and sometimes may say kosher but not have. I did not see one on this website. No judgements here, just an oservation if you are unfamiliar with the territory.

          It might be under Steinberg's watch. I've seen that mentioned here and there.

      adina - forest hills is tricky because there are mostly fast food take out places under the VHQ(western europeans), and various party hall type part time restaurants under the BRC(eastern europeans) - both are Queens run Orthodox supervisions that require these places to be closed on Shabbat.

      Then you have an assortment of "Glatt Kosher" places some open some closed on Shabbat - under a variety of dubious certifications.

      If you can narrow down what type of supervision you are happy with, and what type of food you prefer, as a Forest Hills resident, I can point you in the right direction. of course, when in doubt - you can always cross the park and eat in KGH...

        Cho-sen garden on 108th Street is an old-standby. Its not cheap, but its a decent sit-down Chinese restaurant under the supervision of the Vaad of Queens.
