Light lunch in Jackson Heights?
It's so hot. I've got a friend coming to visit me in Jackson Heights... can anyone recommend a place for a light lunch? She doesn't eat sushi, so that's ruled out. Indian sounds so heavy...
Thai Son serves up some nice, but far from spectacular, Vietnamese dishes, also just steps from the 74th street main entrance.
and himalayan yak, a little bit west on roosevelt, offers a lot of options to put together a little meal from smaller, lighter dishes, some of them vegetarian. it's a nice atmosphere as well, which might be conducive to lunching with someone coming in from afar (even if 'afar' means somewhere near 57th street).
