Your next wedding event should definitely be on Russo’s on the Bay. Storytime. I used to be a birthday party clown, and every time we went to an event here, I was FLOORED. The staff was always professional and an absolute delight. They were also so accommodating. Also, this place is gorgeous. It’s been at Howard Beach for a minute, but it’s so impeccably kept that everything shines like it’s brand new. Depending on your budget, they have tons of different venues, and it’s in such great locations. Whatever your event, wedding, birthday, engagement, just a fancy extravagant party, have it here! Also, when you do, invite me!!! I want to go back sometime soon please 🥺
So if you’re looking for a bit of Greece, a bit of your local diner, and healthy food, Liberty Coffee shop is the place to go! They’ve got all the classics like lemony potatoes, Gyros, and of course, coffee! Besides that, they have classic American fare if you’re looking for something else 😊 The staff is always super friendly and ready to help. It makes me feel like I’m special and valued every time I go in there. Also, did I mention the food is CHEAP? With New York inflation, that’s a rare combo!!! Cheap food ✔️good food ✔️and friendly staff ✔️ If you got let me know! I’d love to meet up and make new friends 😊
I need help over here. Is GK Kingston restaurant and bar ALSO a karaoke bar? I’ve been looking for an excellent place to do karaoke in the area, and I saw it on google, but I don’t see anything on their site! I saw it’s family-owned ✔️ serves food from Jamaica, Guyana, and the Carribian ✔️ and they love their customers ✔️ But, I didn’t see any karaoke pics! I’ve ordered from them online a couple times, and the food really is AMAZING! If you’ve been, let me know if they have karaoke or if the vibe is as good as their food is!
I had no idea the battle of Long Island happened in Richmond Hill! During the revolutionary war, Washington's troops were defeated in Forest Park. If anyone has ever watched Hamilton, you know what happens after that 🤣 Before that, it was inhabited by the Native American Lenape tribe. I think I got that right. Back then, they were referred to as the "Rockaway Indians" (I hate typing that), but their correct name is Lenape. Correct me if I got that wrong! Anyways. Richmond hill was full of trails. One of the trails is now Jamaica Avenue/Fulton Street. Cool right? Makes you want to learn more and respect who was here before us!
I will take no slander over street meat. Tourists need to realize carts are where you get the best food! In South Richmond Hill, I like Madina Halal food Cart! It’s got all the classics, chicken and rice, gyro, kofta, falafel. You name it! If you’ve ever been to Apna Bazaar, you can’t miss it! It’s basically in the Bazaar. Also, the guy who runs it is SUPER friendly. He always gives me a free falafel when I get a combo platter! Maybe it comes with the combo platter in hindsight… but who cares! It’s still delicious. What’s your go-to cart order?
I love a good dinner, especially if it’s 1. Voted the best diner in new york 2. Has the best deserts in Brooklyn 3. And has been featured in the New York Times! All that publicity aside, the Lindenwood Diner really is such a good spot to visit! Besides its delicious food, it also has a history! When I checked out the Times article, it said MOBSTERS and the police of the 75th precinct would dine there! Besides, it’s super retro. Retro meaning there are tableside jukeboxes, and the art there is gorgeous. Has anyone else been?
OBSESSED with Jim Byrne Wee Pub. Anthony Bordain always inspired me to check out places that didn’t look like much. On the outside, it has a wooden sign, and you probably wouldn’t know it’s a bar! Inside it’s the classic Irish pub you would frequent after work! There is food, sports, and best of all 85 cent boneless wings EVERYDAY. You read that right. A wing is less than a dollar! Where else could you find that kind of deal in New York? Have you noticed it before?
Confession. I don’t really like beer. I’m a cider person, and New York and cider don’t mix. That’s why I love The Beer Store in Ozone Park. They’ve got so much variety there are hundreds of different ciders for me to choose from. Just to give you an idea… they stock over 800 different varieties of beer, cider, imported. You name it. It’s a bit of a “guy” store, which is why it’s perfect when I’m trying to find a bday gift for one of my guy friends. They also stock cigars which are perfect for getting my father-in-law! The staff is so friendly and knowledgeable there. Check it out!
