When You Want To Be A Little Fancy, Stay In Queens, and Not Compromise on Quality

Recently, we asked our followers for upscale suggestions for Valentine's Day; we had already been to many of the higher end places in Queens but we were curious to hear your favorites and see where you would send us. More than not, many of you suggested places in Manhattan or Brooklyn, so in typical QueensEats fashion, we want to show you that you don't have to leave Queens to find a great special occasion spot where you can have a great meal with a loved one on a date or take family for a milestone while also spending money locally. Warning: Be prepared to spend a bit of money as you are paying for a higher quality product, very attentive service, and ambiance. 

Some restaurants to still be considered for this list: Il Trianglo, Tara, Maiella, Sushi Daizen, Levante, Tavern 157, Allora


Restaurants to be revisited (lacking a recent review or picture) but QueensEats recommended: Park Side, Don Peppe, Trattoria L'incontro
