Sometimes, you find something very authentic and you have to share the news.
Since there is such diverse food choices in Jackson Heights, one would think, "Italian...maybe some other time."
But my whole family came in on December 30 to see the Jackson Heights Apartment and since there is much Italian blood in the family, I figured I should make a reservation at the local famous Italian restaurant. Besides, my Irish father doesn't go so funky with food and Indian or Peruvian were out of the question.
This place turned out to be so old world and the food was so good, that even my sister-in-law, who is a big Italian cook, thought it was wonderful.
The owner was from a little town in Italy right up the road from where my grandmother's family came from. It was all very cozy and delicious.
Particularly good was my brother's saltimboca.
If ever hungry in Queens, visit Armondos. You won't be disappointed.
