Anything NEW in Rego Park or Middle Village?

Less than a month until our annual visit to my parents' home in Middle Village. We'll be returning to some of our favorite restaurants in the area---Ben's Best, Golden Harbor Chinese, Gyro Grill, London Lennie's, Rosa's pizza in Maspeth---but we're always up for something new and delicious. Anything new we should try? Thanks!

  1. In Rego Park, I'd recommend Istanbul (very good Turkish) and Cheburechnaya (good Bukharan, festive, loud and crazy atmosphere on Saturday nights).

    1. re: JRogan

      Both those places are good, but have been here a long time. There's nothing "new" in Rego Park, unfortunately, at least in terms of unique or really good. There's a little hole in the wall falafel place on Wetherole called Grill House that's not bad for what it is, and Bamboo-Ya, a fairly new Japanese/sushi place on the blvd. OK, but nothing out of the ordinary.

    2. Thank you both for replying. JRogan, Istanbul has been a favorite of ours for years; I don't know how I left that off my list!
      EricMM, I was afraid of that...
