RESTAURANT WEEK & HISTORIC events next week!

The second annual “June in Jackson Heights” campaign, sponsored by Council Member Daniel Dromm, is in full swing with art shows, performances, films and historic tours. This year, 20 restaurants, representing a world of food, will again be offering specially priced menus for residents and visitors during the week-long event from Monday June 20th through Saturday June 25th.

Many Restaurants were happy to be included again this year and they are all on our website. Council Member Dromm’s outreach last year increased awareness of the international cuisine in the neighborhood and helped the sagging economy. Participating again is Colombian establishment Natives Restaurant (82-22 Northern Boulevard), with a Shell Salad filled with grilled chicken or shrimp or salmon and a glass of wine for only $15, in addition Consuelo Quintero has announced she has ample space for performances, parties, films and events in the revamped theatre and the upstairs lounge.

Also new this year are delicious entrees from Nepali at Mustang Thakali Kitchen (74-14 37th Ave) where a 10% discount off anything on the menu is available for the entire week and Desi Chinese newcomer Himalayan Hut (75-18 37th Ave) has a grand deal for two: same soup each, 1 special entrée with rice and tea for just $14.95.

In other parts of the world - such as Northern Boulevard and 31st Avenue in Jackson Heights - visit El Coyote (80-16 Northern Blvd) for Mexican done right at $20 for 3 courses or the delectable Greek neighbor Plaka (75-61 31st Ave) which offers a great menu with 20% off too!

Another special participant that we are celebrating is good ol’ Texas BBQ at Legends ( 71-04 35th Ave) with buy one get one free signature sandwiches of pulled pork and other tasty fare as well as their Traditional Tuesday Pasta Night – incredible Pasta dinner with dessert & coffee sweetened with a discount of 20% off the check.
