Viva La Comida - 82nd Street - Jackson Heights
82nd Street Partnership Hosts Festival At Dunningham Triangle
September 24, 2012 / Jackson Heights / Food in Queens / Queens Buzz. On Friday evening the 82nd Street Partnership hosted Viva La Comida at Dunningham Triangle on 82nd Street at Baxter in Jackson Heights. The event was a fun, quirky preamble to the Hispanic Month activities that officially began on Sunday with the Hispanic Day Parade [click for Hispanic Day Parade report & photos].
I arrived while it was still light out. City Councilman Danny Dromm, Seth Taylor and City Councilmember Julissa Ferreras were standing for photos sandwiched between two men who’s names I will try to obtain and post at a later date. A performance by the youngsters from the Mestizo Art Center followed, much to the delight of the warm and enthusiastic crowd.
I made my way over to the food trucks where I tasted some delicacies and met interesting people … click here to read the rest of our report on Viva La Comida festival hosted by the 82nd Street Partnership in Jackson Heights.

LaPortena Argentine Steakhouse
Jackson Heights Neighborhood / Jackson Heights Restaurants / Queens Buzz. La Portena Argentinian Steakhouse isn't exactly the kind of restaurant that would come to mind when you think of Jackson Heights ... that is unless you live there. La Portena Argentinian Steakhouse is located at 74th Street and 37th Avenue in Jackson Heights. It's quite a popular restaurant which is what first caught my attention. While Indian, Bangladeshi, Thai and Nepalese restaurants first come to mind when thinking about Jackson Heights / Elmhurst restaurants, there's an entire Latin American flavor to the restaurant mix in the neighborhood - and the food and service are both very good.

Arunee Thai Restaurant
Jackson Heights Neighborhood / Jackson Heights Restaurants / Queens Buzz. Tonight I ventured out to a Thai restaurant in Jackson Heights that I had discovered on pure happenstance. I arrived at the restaurant around 7.30 pm on an cool overcast Saturday evening. More than half of the sixty seats had already been filled and it seemed the waiting staff had fallen a bit behind. As I sat there waiting, I began to doubt my choice.
As I surveyed the restaurant I noted that many of the customers were Thai, which I took to be a good sign, as I was looking for real Thai food, not some Americanized version of it. Within the next five to ten minutes, things completely turned. The waiting staff turned up the energy and within minutes it seemed that everyone who had been waiting now had a drink or appetizer sitting in front of them … myself included.

The Jazz Age Returns To Jackson Heights
Jackson Heights / Update February 7, 2010. The Cavalier closed its doors today. The details may be obtained via a link which we added to the following story.
Jackson Heights / January 18, 2009. I spent part of last Friday evening at the Cavalier Restaurant and Lounge in Jackson Heights, enjoying the return of a retro forties lounge act. Bethany Wild sang some beautiful tunes reminiscent of the jazz age, while the crowd enjoyed dinner and / or drinks.
Her soft, sensuous voice wafted through the lounge with piano [via track] in the background. The crowd included an eclectic mix of people who might have enjoyed similar tunes in their youth, as well as young couples in their twenties, thirties and forties. It was a nice mix of ambiance, alcohol, acoustics and alliteration. Bethany returns next Friday from 7 to 10 pm.
