Eats After Leaving JFK at Rush Hour

I have to drop someone at JFK airport tomorrow, Thursday at 4pm. Then two of us want to stop for something to eat before driving back to eastern LI. I think it would be best not to travel too far until the traffic subsides a little. Not looking for adventurous food like Caribbean near the airport.. Probably Italian, Greek or good seafood would be best. Maybe drive as far as Elmont, Valley Stream or Rockville Centre. Or we would be willing to drive down the Nassau Expwy towards Atlantic Beach, Long Beach or Five Towns area for something good. Thanks in advance.

  1. How about Swingbelly's BBQ in Long Beach?

    Caribbean food is adventurous?

      I guess adventurous was a poor choice of word. The person I'll be driving with won't go for anything jerk, hot/spicy, etc.

      Thanks for the Swingbelly's info.
