HAVELI

>> Tuesday, March 25, 2014

116-30 Queens Boulevard
Forest Hills, NY 11375
(718) 261-8880


Despite Forest Hills' proximity to Jackson Heights, or perhaps because of it, we don't have much in the way of Indian restaurants. Yes, the zip code has Baluchi's, the oft maligned, but in reality not-bad-albeit-timid, microchain. But that's about it. ... No, we also have Haveli, and Pike, having ordered delivery from them on a number of occasions, had been a hearty advocate of their deliciousness. "Had been" because that was before we decided to dine there in person.

THE OTHER PLACE

>> Wednesday, March 5, 2014

103-19 Metropolitan Avenue
Forest Hills, NY 11375
(718) 779-7266


Forest Hills' original gastropub is Dirty Pierre's, which sits almost anonymously on the Station Square cobblestones under scaffolding that's probably been in the neighborhood longer than you have. Known for their mussels, their burgers, and an interior that made food truck seating feel spacious, Dirty Pierre's decided to open a second outlet on Metropolitan which they named The Other Place. There may be no foot traffic or subway access, but you can get a decent-sized space for a decent-sized price. Myna, Pike, and I headed over to check it out.

THE GRILL

>> Thursday, January 30, 2014

107-12 70th Road
Forest Hills, NY 11375
(718) 744-4600


The phone rang. It was Pike. "Yo. Wanna get dinner?" Sure. How about that new place on 70th? "Sounds good. What's it called?" I think it's called The Grill. At least that's what they have glowing over the sidewalk. "Oof. Least Googleable name ever. How about 7?" When I arrived, Pike had already found a table, though that wasn't hard since he was one of the only people there. It was a Tuesday and the temperature was frigid. Every restaurant, even the normally standing-room-only Cabana next door was relatively deserted, so I wasn't terribly surprised that The Grill was as quiet as a tomb. Warmer weather will decide if this is a trend. When the weather warms up and the sidewalk brunch crowds come out in force, it will be interesting to see what The Grill looks like on a Sunday afternoon.
