Michelin, the French company that publishes highly regarded restaurant guides, included 15 Queens restaurants in its 2018 Bib Gourmand guide.
The guide outlines the restaurants in New York City that offer “exceptionally good food at moderate prices.” In all of the more than 120 restaurants on the guide, diners can purchase two courses and a glass of wine or dessert for $40 or less.
The Queens restaurants listed on the guide offer an eclectic mix of cuisines and are located in a variety of neighborhoods.
Arharn Thai, located right near the Museum of the Moving Image in Astoria, offers a variety of traditional Thai curry dishes and desserts such as buad chee (banana in warm coconut milk) and mango with sweet, sticky rice.
Casa del Chef Bistro in Woodside is a family-owned restaurant offering up dishes like black bass with pumpkin pesto, spaghetti squash, toasted sesame oil and grilled barbecue grass-fed beef of the week with brussels sprouts and carrots puree.
Dumpling Galaxy, located in Flushing’s Arcadia Mall, offers diners nearly 100 varieties of dumplings. Helen You, who owns a stall, Tianjin Dumpling House, at Golden Shopping Mall decided to open a brick-and-mortar store in 2014. Filling options range from lamb with green squash to cod with roe and wood ear mushroom and cabbage.
The guide book will be released on Nov. 2 for $18.99
