Dame Tartine @ Pompidou

2 Rue Brisemiche

It’s a nice little eatery in a row with many others, looking out directly to the Fontaine Stravinsky. To the right is the Pompidou Center – the open space is under construction. To the left, is the saint-Merry, a Catholic Church.

The charcuteries and tartines are delicious, so is my white wine.

Jardin Anne-Frank and Le Hangar are near by.

Royal Queen

136-20 Roosevelt Ave, 3rd Fl
Flushing, NY 11354

This was Grand Restaurant 君豪大酒楼 – I don’t know when did they change to the current name, because the location and the interior – everything else is unchanged. I haven’t been there for a couple of years and did discover some new dim sums. The six small plates are about $40. Their bathroom is pretty clean.

3.5 I think … probably will return.

Pleasant. Airy. Light. On the 5th floor of a hotel.

Cute water glass. Decent food – but the Chechen wings are quite huge – like whole chicken – ok this is a little exaggerated bec I’ve seen bigger wings. The K-town wings are on the sweet side, very dry.

Latte is good.

Good service. Good place for watching sports.

Replacing the Sport Authority, this wine shop is huge, yet very comfortable to shop.
