Hey fellow Queens peeps- if you missed Queens Restaurant Week at the end of September (like I did- I'm embarrassed to say I didn't realize it was that time of year already!), catch up on cheap eats in Long Island City/Hunters Point next week. From November 1st through 4th, get a 3 course prix fixe lunch or dinner for just $25 during Hunters Point Restaurant Week.
Participating restaurants where I've enjoyed good vegetarian dishes in the past include:
Riverview Restaurant on Center Blvd and 49th Avenue for American-Continental fare.
Shi on Center Blvd between 47th Road and 47th Avenue for Japanese & Chinese food
Testaccio on Vernon Blvd between 48th Avenue and 47th Road for Roman cuisine
Though I wouldn't quite call this area of LIC "Hunters Point", most of these restos are still just one stop off the 7 train in Queens, so really, Manhattanites have no excuse for this one :) Call ahead to confirm the prix-fixe menus, and eat up!
