      Park Pleasant Deli looks very uninspiring . The signage makes me thing it will be another corner sandwich , bodega spot. Fake bunting is never a good sign of things to come.

      Cafe Bee on 72nd, this place is just the right time for the neighborhood. Their soft scrambled egg and oriental salad with grill chicken are extremely delicious, and serve ALL DAY. They also have a promotion for grand opening is buy any salad or sandwich and get soup for FREE. The staffs are very friendly and great service as well. I will definitely come back to try some other food
