What is the mark of a good restaurant? As a food blogger for many moons, I’d say consistency in the food from start to finish, the service, and the overall experience is the mark of a good restaurant. Press 195 in Bayside, Queens raises the bar on these factors in every way, and sometimes you just wanna go where everybody knows your name (insert laugh track here). Press 195 is that place for me – it’s in my hometown, they know my best friend and my mom, and they sometimes pretend to not know me when I make bad jokes. Like most of my friends do. Regardless, I had the pleasure of sitting down with Brian Karp, owner and sandwich genius, to chat about Press and why it’s such a great neighborhood staple. And why those fries are SO DAMN GOOD.
