2008 Queens Restaurant Week – September 15 – 18 and 22 – 26

Queens Restaurant Week – Sept 15-18th, 22-26th
3-course lunch/dinner for around $25/$35.
Also select restaurants will feature lunch dinner for 2 for those prices.

There are more restaurants offering dinner deals than lunches. Also, restaurant week menus are generally quite restricted. It would be a good idea to call ahead to make sure they are offering what you want.

Now, for the price… It would be a challenge to spend $25 on one meal in Jackson Heights and the surrounding areas. The only ones I would consider in JH are Delhi Heights (the new modern Indian restaurant) and maybe la fusta – but they aren’t there. I am more into checking out places in Astoria, LIC, and some of the Italian places in inner Queens.
