One afternoon in Queens - where to go for lunch?
Last minute help needed! I just found out my husband and I need to be in Fresh Meadows on Monday morning and will have time to hang around for lunch. We'll have a car but we'll only have about an hour and a half total to get to the restaurant, park, and eat before we need to head back. Where should we go for lunch (and what should we order)? We are pretty adventurous eaters...
90 minutes for lunch is kind of tight. The following places are all in Fresh Meadows with easy street parking nearby.
Benny's Kosher Pizza
181-30 Union Tpke | Btwn 181st & 182nd St
Naomi's Kosher Pizza & Israel Falafel
68-28 Main St | Btwn Melbourne Ave & 68th Ave
184-02 Horace Harding Expy | Btwn 184th & 185th St
This place just opened recently. I really enjoyed the appetizers here, especially the duck soft tacos and deep fried string beans. http://www.miannoodle.com/
178-19 Union Tpke | At 179th St
