Restaurants & Food / Recommended: D'Antigua on Northern Blvd.
« Last post by NYer1008 on Today at 12:32:27 AM »
Many bars/restaurants have dropped happy hour during the pandemic. But if you're looking for one...D'Antigua has happy hour 7 days a week (4-7pm during week, afternoons on weekends), including SingleCut on tap for $4. Drinks like margaritas, mojitos, pina coladas are $7-8, and some appetizers are discounted.

As for regular dining, the menu offers dishes from around Latin America, including burritos & quesadillas, arepas, patacon (Venezuelan), Peruvian lomo saltado and lots more. Everything's tasty!

D'Antigua has a nice outdoor setup -- as nice as you can be when you're jutting into Northern Blvd., that is! It's not a makeshift-looking setup with tacky tarps, but a sturdy, attractive structure with decorative lights and plants. Their indoor seating is well-spaced-out, and there's a bottle of hand sanitizer on every table indoors.

I don't have any connection to the restaurant other than as a satisfied customer! Have lived in the neighborhood a few years and just went there for first time this week.

Happy to see this endearing got featured, but not sure if the locals are keen on fighting for a seat from at their watering hole with added attention.   
Restaurants & Food / Thai Bar in Elmhurst - Pata Paplean

We've discussed Pata Paplean a few times before, but we've never had a dedicated thread on it.

Chopsticks and Marrow could spin off an entire blog dedicated to this little Elmhurst Thai bar with the tasty noodles (see here and here and here)

Today, they're in the NY Times: The Blood-Broth Noodles at Pata Paplean Are Elusive No More

Does anyone have recommendations for "Oriential" (is there another word to use?!) rug cleaning/repair? I have a ~ 5' x 7' rug from the 60's-70's that's in need of some repair and a good cleaning. Thanks!

Neighborhood Chat / Re: Shrieking Greystone Children

Thanks r, for posting that older NYTimes article! There has been an evolution in JH with all the lovely private gardens becoming much less precious for residents. It's a great compromise. I do, however, think the operative word here is "shrieking". There is a special pitch that some youngsters have when their voices are loud that is earsplitting. One of our neighbors is great in asking her daughter not to use that voice and getting her to think about how it affects people. Parents can make a difference here! I would make sure those watching the children are actually aware of the sounds and how they affect someone's quality of life while still allowing the kids lots of free play. They may have become immune over time. Many co-op buildings have lovely green spaces and all residents should be able to enjoy that amenity in an equitable way.

I'm a parent of a young child, so I usually find garden restrictions rather suffocating. But I recognize this shrieking sound, pitch, whatever you want to call it and it's very unpleasant. Kids can definitely play, laugh, run around, and avoid this sound completely at the same time.

Could I ask which UPS access you use?
I've used Nueva Vida Pharmacy on 37th Ave. You pick up your package from the front cashier. My only gripe is that since it's a tiny store it can feel a little crammed inside, but it's 1,000x better than the UPS store on 83rd.
