It’s always wonderful to go back to a favorite restaurant and discover all over again why you like it. That’s definitely the case with Villaggio Ristorante in Whitestone, an Italian dining experience that will never let you down.Opened almost 10 years ago in a former bakery, Villaggio is located at 150-07 14 Road, near the Cross Island Parkway. You enter to a cherry wood bar and brick-oven pizza-making area, a warm and cozy spot during this blustery winter.
There are few things more authentic in New York City than the pizzeria and in South Queens, there is no shortage of them.
In a one-square-mile area, including all of Ozone Park and parts of Richmond Hill, South Ozone Park and Howard Beach, there are 18 pizzerias.
The best gaming spots in the world all have more in common than slot machines, poker tables and glitzy shows. Travel to Atlantic City or Las Vegas or Monte Carlo and you’ll hear a lot about the food.
In fact, food and gaming go together like, well, steak and potatoes.
“We sell a lot of fish normally but during the summer people tend to eat more sushi,” Peter Faccibene, owner of Shiro of Japan said. “Hibachi is really an all-year thing, but in the summer we definitely notice an increase in seafood and some of the lighter items. Our most popular sushi items are probably the lobster roll, spicy tuna rolls and our brown rice roll is getting more and more popular with people.”
The hibachi restaurant that sits in the newly renovated Shops at Atlas Park at 80-40 Cooper Ave. in Glendale has a recently opened outdoor terrace where guests can sit and enjoy their sushi or sashimi al fresco.
No matter what meal you’re in the mood for, you can find it on Cross Bay Boulevard.
One of southern Queens’ premier commercial strips, “the boulevard” has its share of shopping and commerce, but the key ingredient to what makes the boulevard work is its wide array of food choices that will satisfy just about every palate whatever time of day it is.
