Jackson Diner

37-47  74th St. Jackson Heights, NY 11372

The lunch buffet here is my favourite. Start with Tandoori Chicken, some Pudina Chutney and a chilled Kingfisher premium Indian beer. Nothing like it. Appetizers also include Aloo Tikki with Cholae. When ready for lunch, what could a punjabi ask for more, Butter Chicken (Chicken Makhani), Dal Makhani, Punjabi Curry, Naan and Pulao. They also have Plain and Masala Dosa made fresh in front of your eyes with some hot sambhar. I have always been a big fan of coconut chutney which they don't serve. Last but not the least, the dessert. Kheer it is. The best I have tried in NY.

The Fat Black Pussy Cat

130 W. 3rd St., New York, NY 10012 
Just as you get out of W 4th St station, cross the 6th Ave to FBPC. Close to Mc Donald's, this place cannot be missed. There is usually a long line to get in but worth the wait. As soon as you enter, you find this place crowded with a lot of young people. The beer is $5.50 even on a weekend is cheap as compared to all the other places where beer is not less than $10 on weekend. Inside, the Morrocan lounge is a nice place to have a small gathereing. Feel like dancing, the "Underground" basement dance floor rocks and the nicest thing is that you don't need to buy a bottle to take a table.
