New York Style Eats

The somewhat oddly named “New York Style Eats” restaurant on the corner of 45th street and Queens Blvd south is best categorized as a diner, although they seem to get an awful lot of take-out business for a diner. This was actually the first local restaurant I went to when I moved to Sunnyside over 4 years ago, and have come by once in a while since then.

The dinner food is generally better than the lunch food (a lot of which is greasy, sloppy food), and based on my experience, they put more effort into the dine-in food than they do to the take-out.

Bruschetta

As soon as we were seated, the waiter brought over a complimentary bruschetta appetizer, which was a nice but not entirely unexpected surprise (I’ve gotten free appetizers or desserts here before). It seems like they just slapped some of those toppings on freshly cut bread, but it was nevertheless good, and you can’t really criticize it when it’s free.

Chicken scampi

Usually people associate “scampi” with shrimp I think, but here I decided to go for the chicken version ($13), one of the standard dinner entrees (there are daily specials as well). I was very pleasantly surprised at the quality of this dish. The chicken itself wasn’t spectacular, but the general design of this dish and the accompanying yellow rice and freshly roasted peppers were excellent.I was completely full after eating this (and even leaving some rice behind).

Eggplant parmigiana

The eggplant parmigiana ($12) came in full display on a plate, instead of stuffed into a hero as one usually sees at pizza places. The accompanying bread was actually garlic bread (which comes with every entree). There was a good amount of hot cheese on this thing, and it was good, but not amazing.
