About the Project

What is Microcosm?

Microcosm is a curated guide to good - I might even claim "the best" - food in Queens (for now). In addition to the typical ratings and categorization, we also list restaurants' accessibility and accomodation of dietary needs.

What is it not?

Microcosm is not comprehensive or necessarily even objective. The database is compiled from a limited number of people's personal experiences, and so it will reflect our personal preferences and biases. However, we are cognizant of this and are always trying to broaden our knowledge! If you have recommendations or input, drop us a comment.

What do the grades mean?

The grading system is broadly similar to a certain other three-star guide. 3 star establishments are places worth a dedicated trip; 2 star establishments are worth a detour; and 1 star establishments are for if you're in the area. That said, all establishments listed on Microcosm are excellent!
