As a person with no knowledge of cars, it has always been intimidating for me to have my car repaired. Tommy of ANT Auto is completely reliable, treats me respectfully, is honest and fair and knows cars. Take your car here!
I used to eat from here or at here almost daily when working in Rego Park. Yeah, they screwed up the delivery a lot, but they have decent sandwiches and diner fare.
I haven't been here in yrs as I surely surpass the age of the crowd. In general this was a good "meet-market" kind of place for young professionals after hours. The bouncers have notoriously always been jerks with arbitrary policies.
I was here once to see a funky little alt country band. I was impressed with both the band and the place. Definitely teeny tiny so get there early if you want to sit down. Kind of a dive but a dive with heart I'd say.
I was here for brunch only. I got the tofu frittata which was kind of like a vegan eggs benedict. I think I would have loved it but there were a lot of unadvertised peppers in it, which I spent the meal picking out. They have a great muffin sampler that comes with different butters and nutella which was DELICIOUS! Not too expensive and nice atmosphere.
I came here for the much lauded vegan ice cream sandwiches. The place definitely has a cool relaxing vibe, definitely the kind of place to being a newspaper or book to, and hang out. They make a homemade ice cream sandwich, all vegan. Eh, it was just OK. I would come back and try a sandwich.
Local and reliable, I would recommend northgate dry cleaners to anyone in the neighborhood. Big place, very nice people, good service. My only complaint is that it is expensive. Most dry cleaning is though . . .
So what if it's a chain, this place has amazing soup and it is better than the Soup Man! Also, cheaper. Great vegetarian options and really, just so many options to choose from. They also have a decent mixed salad. I wish they had a vegetarian sandwich option.
As a NYer I am a born pizza snob but I always enjoyed the deep dish pizza at Armands. Their sauce has a sweetness to it that is unique and they also offer a lot of great hero options as well.
This is a really nice liquor store that I frequented when I lived in the neighborhood. It's small and yet they have a great selection of wines, very well organized and easy to select. They are also very helpful. Highly recommended.
