talk to the folks at the farmer's market booth. since they also control the fishing boats, he's very aware of exactly when things were caught/harvested and has a really good idea of the shelf life. i've gotten "you should probably use that today or tomorrow" and "that should last through thursday," and all have been right on the money.

Restaurants & Food / Asian Taste 86
« Last post by petegart on Yesterday at 07:21:01 PM »
Indonesian food at Asian Taste 86.  86-10 Whitney Ave, Elmhurst.  This is a short walk from JH.  We were in the mood for Indonesian food and decided to try this place.  We were pleasantly suprised because we tried a few others but we like this restaurant the best. On our 1st visit we ate – Gado Gado, Chicken Satay + Beef Rendang + a version of Nasi Goreng with mixed seafood, on the 2nd visit – we had Gado Gado, Chicken Satay + whole fried pompano fish served with a tamarind soup. On the 2nd visit I purchased a beer from the deli on the corner. 
It is a small space with about 7 tables, but it's comfortable.  The people who serve are very nice and the more you enjoy their food the bigger their smiles.  It's a very homey place. 
You can have the 'heat' adjusted to your liking - but we had medium, and they have three hot sauces sitting on the table..

The Legal Aid Society Unveils Hotline to Assist Immigrant Communities Impacted by Recent ICE Raids
(New York, NY) – The Legal Aid Society unveiled a hotline this morning following confirmed reports yesterday of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) raids throughout the city. The hotline went live at 8 a.m. Sunday and Legal Aid attorneys are now reachable in various languages to assist families who have an immediate ICE detention case, questions about their rights or other pressing immigration concerns. Legal Aid also issued an emergency plan fact sheet to help communities prepare in case of detention and deportation of a family member.

New Yorkers can contact the hotline by calling - 844-955-3425 and access important information by visiting

“The confirmed reports from neighborhood organizations and others yesterday regarding ICE raids on Staten Island have us all concerned. We fear for our clients, immigrants, and others historically marginalized who now live in constant uncertainty,” said The Legal Aid Society’s Attorney-in-Chief Seymour W. James Jr. “Any New Yorker who has been impacted by these raids or has a basic immigration question can call our hotline for immediate legal assistance – Legal Aid attorneys are standing by and ready to help. Our hearts our broken for the impacted families but our resolve to defend is not. As we have for the past 140 years, The Legal Aid Society will continue undeterred protecting the city’s vulnerable, especially in these troubled times.”

Another option -- a bit closer than the Flushing options and a bit better than the local ones -- is Natural Tofu in Sunnyside.
This one is really good

Neighborhood Chat / Re: Jazz lounge/bar
« Last post by Ed on Yesterday at 01:30:39 PM »
I haven't worked at Terraza 7, so I have no idea what the scene is, but since the gig at NOVO died there isn't a venue in the neighborhood that actually offers musicians any money. I love Espresso 77, but that's a "pass the hat" gig and that insures that I'm not going to be able to book the level of musicians I want to play with (and you'd want to hear) to the neighborhood. My friend Joe is trying to get a steady summer public performance series with a jazz focus, they've had workshops and performances for the last two summers, but those are intermittent and ancillary to supporting a vibrant neighborhood musical scene.

But given the disappearance of live music from most venues that are not music destinations, I'm not sanguine.
