There's a good (IME) Chinese in Lawrence, Cho-Sen Island.

ETA: their website tells me they also have a location in Forest Hills, never been there.

Cho-Sen is a Chinese (and Japanese) restaurant, not a Chinese grease joint takeout place.

Pizza I can get in CLE.
Any great Chinese?

My point is not machmir or meikel (and i dont believe batei shammai or hillel were focused on machmir meikel as seen in several strange machloksim where they go opposite ways, though perhaps there was some subconscious thing there generally). when people who werent hardcore and werent ready to take all of torah on came to Shammai, he slapped them upside the head and said get out (perhaps thinking better if they stay ignorant as u suggest). Hillel played it way differently, giving all of torah on one feet (even less than the big 10!) and taking on a guy who would not accept torah shebeal peh and bringing him around. perhaps these guys did aveiros after and werent perfect jews, but each mitzvah matters and the aveiros would have happened anyway. Like the Rebbe z'tl said in his first piece on Pirkei Avos, "Kol yisroel yesh lahem chelek "Le"Olam habah", not Beolam haba but Leolam haba, bc even the sinners have a purpopse and every little thing they can learn and incorporate into their lives fixes our world and brings us to the perfection to come.

דחפו באמת הבנין is more like "he shoved him with a 10-foot-pole".

That's my point. It's Jewish and he has non Jewish markets.

How do you know so much about his business?

No data points but you have nothing to lose by trying.

+1, plz post back with your experiences.

Of course.
Only issue is that they don't open until 12.

Good point. Maybe they'll make an exception for you? Georgians eat meat for breakfast too :D

Marani in Rego Park is excellent and priced well. Loved the kebab skewers there and I doubt you will find kosher Georgian food anywhere else.

+1, had several great experiences there, but the food is exotic. If you'd like I can recommend some things from the menu.

Don't know what fish you bought. I had one experience with Salmon steak (not something I usually buy elsewhere) and it was excellent.

$8/Lb.?

Saw you already posted this, but it probably should have its own thread anyway.

There are many varying sources in Chabad itself as to what's the correct way to do it. Thanks

Slightly on the topic, not as a halachic guide but an interesting tidbit nonetheless:

http://www.chabadtalk.com/forum/showthread.php3?t=5498

As an aside, my father wasn't born in Israel, but lived there from age 9 to 20+ then lived in the USA. Through the years he follow the psak of (IINM) R' Yaakov Landau to keep two days. He'll be in Israel Pesach and plans on keeping two days. Thought the years it had become harder and harder in Chabad communities for him to find a YomTov minyan on the second day, many more people apparently rely on the Mekilim.

Calabria's Pizza was really nothing special, Basil shouldn't feel threatened at all, not that Basils was earth-shattering either...

מענין לענין באותו ענין, Benny's had a fire last night (was reported in charge.info).
