Michelin has released its picks for the 2018 Bib Gourmand award, a recognition designated to 127 restaurants this year where diners can eat quality food for a good value.

The restaurants, revealed on Oct. 23, include 15 in Queens, spanning neighborhoods like Long Island City, Astoria, Woodside, Elmhurst, Forest Hills, and Flushing.

Arharn Thai and the Greek Gregory’s 26 Corner Taverna, straddling the Long Island City/Astoria border, returned to the list this year, along with HinoMaru Ramen. Long Island City’s John Brown Smokehouse and Mu Ramen were also newly awarded the Bib Gourmand.

Three Elmhurst restaurants also returned to the list—the Thai Paet Rio, Sweet Yummy House serving Chinese food, and Uncle Zhou, known for its Henanese cuisine.

Flushing saw four restaurants return to the list, with one new restaurant added. the Korean Tong Sam Gyup Goo Yi, Hunan Kitchen, Hunan House, and Hahm Ji Back, the Korean barbecue restaurant, were all awarded once more. Dumpling Galaxy, which opened in 2014, was a new inductee to the list.

Casa Del Chef, the New American bistro in Woodside, received the Bib Gourmand designation once more, the only restaurant in the neighborhood. In Forest Hills, the Italian Il Poeta received the honor once more.

The Bib Gourmand awards are given out each year, and are handed to restaurants where diners can enjoy two courses and a glass of wine or dessert for $40 or less.

“Michelin inspectors have been eating their way around New York’s five boroughs for more than 13 years and every year they are inspired by the inventiveness and imagination of the city’s chefs,” said Michael Ellis, international director of the Michelin Guide, in a statement. “From Flushing to the Bronx, the Bib Gourmand restaurants represent 127 establishments where diners can enjoy quality ingredients, quality cooking and fair prices.”

The 2018 list of Michelin-starred restaurants for New York City will be released on Oct. 30.

I don’t generally go out of my way for Thai food but Arharn Thai is my go to spot when my wife or kids want Thai.

Nice friendly staff and good food in quality and quantity.

Very happy for the family that runs the place.

3 men sought for armed robbery in East Elmhurst home invasion near LaGuardia Airport: NYPD

The NYPD is looking for three men who allegedly robbed an East Elmhurst man of tens of thousands of dollars during a home invasion early Monday morning.

Police from the 115th Precinct in Jackson Heights responded to a 911 call of an armed robbery at a townhouse located at 108-09 Ditmars Blvd. near 29th Avenue just south of LaGuardia Airport.
The victim had pulled up in front of his home just before 2 a.m. when he was approached by three suspects. One of them pulled out a firearm and forced him inside the townhouse where they stole around $30,000 in cash and a safe that contained an unspecified amount of jewelry, before exiting and driving off in a silver four-door SUV, police said.
