Late Lunch in Forest Hills

image

Some of the best pies in Queens are at Nick’s Pizza in Forest Hills.  You can customize your pie with just about any topping for an extra $2.50 each.  Our favorite?  The meatball pie (above).  Here’s what we got to feed a hungry part of 6:

  • 2 Mixed green salads
  • Large meatball pie
  • Large pie half regular, half sausage and red onion

After lunch we took a short walk down Austin Street and over to La Boulangerie to grab a coffee and pastry.

It was too late for my favorite buttery almond croissant (they were out) so I got an iced latte and slice of Parisian flan to go.
