Spuntino Wine Bar

Garden City, NY 11530

Love it: right lighting, cozy atmosphere, personable service, delicious food, good wine, clean bathroom. Also like their tableware and utensils. The rustic table tops are cool.
The freshly made mozzarella is awesome. I usually don’t go for pasta but the squid ink campanelle is a must try, al dente and yummy.

  • Soppresata & Prosciutto with some cheeses
  • bruschetta with green apple Gorgonzola
  • Pizza
  • Arancini, & Polenta Fries with Tomato Sauce
  • Short Ribs with turnip purée
  • fresh handmade mozzarella

Good food – deserves 3.5 but price made them less desirable… the appetizer – Brussel sprout came too quickly and lukewarm which made me think … did they just reheat it: the time was short, if they had cooked it, it would be still hot. Ok service although the staff tried to sell a bit too much. We went early and there was a lady doing some paper work near the kitchen – the pro or considers themselves pro won’t do it: just looks and feels amateurish. The dining hall is fine, bathroom is clean. Like their water glass.

Rong restaurant

Flushing, NY 11355
(718) 939-3996

This is one my faves in Flushing. Spacious, clean, delicious, good presentation. We dined on a Wednesday night, it’s half empty. Good and speedy service. I like their gray uniform too. The waiter, as if happens, doesn’t speak a word of English – which speaks about the situation in Flushing – they don’t need to.
The Sichuan beef is tender. Roast pork belly is ok – a little disappointing. The fried tofu is good. The clams in the bed of steamed eggs – really good.  Yelp review. Flushing is really going a major rehab Presso.

A cute coffee house in Flushing. Warm and welcoming. Like their high ceiling, the big tea mug. Some counter has outlet for recharging. The cheese cake is pretty good. Will try the red one next time. My review on Yelp
