Meet Benny from @lennyspizza! Benny has been in the pizza game running Lenny's Pizza since he was 19. With the help of his brother, he got into the small business realm and a young age and now manages Lenny's Pizza on his own. Being a small business owner is tough, but Benny thinks its worth it! As someone from Staten Island, Benny commutes to Sunnyside - a long way! But he loves it here and thinks its one of the best neighborhoods in NYC! We are so excited to have Lenny's Pizza, a #sunnyside staple as part of restaurant week. They have amazing 3-course meals featuring pizza, lasagna, salad and more. We think you'll come to learn that Lenny's has more to offer than pizza (but also try their pizza because its fire!). Link in bio for full details, #sunnysiderestaurantweek is Oct 22nd-28th.

@solelunanyc was born out of a communal passion for good food. Owners Gina and Valerio met many years ago, working at a restaurant together. Over time they evolved into being brother and sister. At the old restaurant, they would get Holiday's off. And, particularly on Christmas, they started cooking together. Each bringing their own creativity and passion to the work. They wanted to bring their feeling of community through food to Sunnyside and opened SoleLuna. Through beautifully thought out cocktails, desserts, and entrees you can taste their passion for good food with every bite. // Labor day of 2017, Gina and Valerio opened @sottolestellenyc - a Neapolitan pizzeria. Their pizza maker, Manuel, is from Naples and strives to make a light pizza that is still delicious. Sotto E Stelle sources traditional Italian ingredients and uses a low yeast crust to provide a light, but filling pie. // Check out both SoleLuna and Sotto E Stelle during Sunnyside Restaurant Week! Starting tomorrow Oct 22nd and running through Oct 28th. . . . . #sunnysideshines #sunnysidequeens #itsinqueens #nyceeeeeats #queenseats #foodie #restaurantweek #nycrestaurantweek

Great for watching a game and having a meal or picking up take out on the way home, Oasis Pizza & Gyro is a good place for a visit. This family-operated business relaunched three years ago and has been listening to the needs of the community. On a busy afternoon you’ll see customers having a lamb gyro or chicken wrap, while the evening crowd orders up cheese burgers and roast chicken with fries. Oasis is open late for those of us working long hours or on our way home from happy hour. Oasis Pizza & Gyro is participating in #sunnysiderestaurantweek Oct 22nd-28th. Be sure to check them out!

KICKED OFF SUNNYSIDE WEEK WITH A VISIT TO @bajekosekuwa.ny LAST NIGHT . . . The name of this 🇳🇵Nepali spot means "grandpa's barbecue," and apparently back in Kathmandu gramps grilled lots of 🐐goat. Slide 1: goat sukuti, a chewy fiery jerky; hyakula, grillef goat riblets with puffed rice; and goat momo. Slide 2: The meaty riblets will surely win over any grandchild. Slide 3: goat bone soup eats like a Nepali version of Jamaica's mannish water. . . . @bajekosekuwa.ny is just one of more than 3 dozen restaurants participating in Sunnyside Restaurant Week, which ends on 10/28. After my meal I celebrated by watching an episode of @nbcsunnyside, which I am sad to see was cancelled. . . . #sunnysideshines #sunnysidequeens #restaurantweek #nycrestaurantweek #bajekosekuwa #🇳🇵 #itsinqueens #ediblequeens #nbcsunnyside

@ricaspupusasny is one of few eateries in New York City specializing in pupusa, an El Salvadoran favorite that is eaten during all times of the day. The Vargas family began making the pupusas for their church in Corona during the weekends, and eventually decided to open up shop at 47-55 47th Street. Irma, who leads the family business, explains that each pupusa is made-to-order and uses as much whole ingredients as possible, ensuring freshness for their customers. The different fillings include traditional ingredients, such as loroca (edible flower), chicharron (pork), and revuelta (pork, cheese, and beans mix). With her mother Maria, her husband Daniel, and their daughters Amy, Abby, Ashbel, and Arashel all helping, the business continues to grow, allowing them to share cuisine from their culture. The menu also bolsters tamal, freshly squeezed fruit juices, and if you’re lucky, pork or chicken broth available only on Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday, with just 10 bowls made every day. Irma makes the soup from scratch the day it is served. For Sunnyside Restaurant Week, don’t miss out on Ricas Pupusas Y Mas’ amazing all-day or dinner specials.

@rinconmelanianyc has a specific goal in mind: showcase Ecuadorian cuisine in its most traditional way. Owner Lucila “Melania” Dutan is from the town of Biblian in the southern province of Cañar, in Ecuador. Lucila is joined by her children, Nestor and Jennifer. Nestor describes the restaurant as his “mother’s work”. And indeed she has worked tirelessly to develop a restaurant that is reminiscent of her hometown but does not stop there. The dishes pay tribute to the many regional traditions Ecuador. The authenticity of the menu is apparent with dishes like the Yapingacho; this recipe originates in the Sierra Andes Mountains and is hundreds of years old. The care that is taken into making these truly traditional dishes was recently highlighted in a feature article by the New York Times. Rincon Melania succeeds in providing customers a pure taste of Ecuador. Rincon Melania is participating in #sunnysiderestaurantweek Oct 22nd-28th. Be sure to check them out!

Sunnyside | It’s raining, but it’s Sunnyside Restaurant Week, so I don’t “kheer” 😀 Kheer or desi rice pudding. Dawa’s describes themselves as Himalayan/New American. I got the restaurant week menu while my friend @mieshahollingsworth ordered from the regular menu. The kheer was lovely, but was missing some spice, even though we found a clove. Cardamom would be good. But overall a good experience and beautiful space! 🌿

On any given afternoon you can find the bar at Bantry Bay Publick House @bantrybaynyc bustling with energy. Patrons come for the beer and happy hour specials, chat with the bartender, or play games in one of the cozy booths that outlines the venue. This particular Fall afternoon was perfect for a Southern Tier Pum-Kin beer with a cinnamon-nutmeg rim! Ericka, a co-owner for the Irish Pub, can vouch for the authenticity of the bar, as Bantry is a coastal town in the county of Cork, in Ireland. As such, Cork County has a vested interest in the success of this pub so there is no shortage of Irish dishes on the menu. The most inviting on a fall afternoon is of course the Shepheard’s Pie. But if you crave more American fare, the Mac & Cheese with bacon and plum tomatoes is another favorite on the menu. Located on the edge of Sunnyside, Bantry Bay Publick House is where we go to unwind, get cozy, and feast on Irish comfort food. Bantry Bar is participating in #sunnysiderestaurantweek Oct 22nd-28th.

This fun Colombian restaurant offers something for everyone – happy hours, karaoke, live music, and dancing. Come a drink and stay for the entertainment. Or come for a meal and stay for the evening. Either way, you’re sure to leave the restaurant happy and satisfied. Cumbia y Sabor @cumbiaysabor offers a range of Colombian fare including the national dish, or Bandeja Paisa – a dish with rice and beans, steak, chorizo, chicharron, sweet plantains, avocado, arepa, and topped with a fried egg. Traditional and tropical cocktails are included on the drink menu; we were impressed by the Rum Canelazo (served warm!) Sunnyside has been fortunate to have this business in our backyard for the last three years and look forward many more fun times here.

Tucked just steps away from the Sunnyside Arch and Bliss Plaza is a treasured local spot for fine French cuisine. Father-and-daughter team Theo and Melissa Monge opened Bliss 46 Bistro in 2011; Theo had worked his way up in the restaurant industry for years, starting as a dishwasher, and all the time dreaming about opening his own restaurant where he could craft French classics. Bliss 46 Bistro delivers heartily on its promise of sumptuous dishes like moules marinieres, roasted salmon with capers and white wine, and steak l’onglet, with a fresh-baked apple tart with ice cream lending a seasonal finish to the hearty yet lovingly-crafted meal. Alongside their passion for great food, the Monges are also solidly committed to the Sunnyside community; their annual participation in Taste of Sunnyside is eagerly anticipated by residents each year, and their Sunnyside Restaurant Week menu has been the entry point for countless diners to explore the neighborhood as a dining destination. It is no wonder with their warm, unpretentious service and exquisite yet affordable cuisine, Bliss 46 Bistro cuisine has become a treasured dining destination for many. . . . . #sunnysideshines #sunnysidequeens #itsinqueens #nyceeeeeats #queenseats #foodie #restaurantweek #nycrestaurantweek

Crustless Cheesecake • Ras Malai 🇮🇳/🇳🇵Excited to return to @bajekosekuwa.ny to try its dinner menu for the Sunnyside Restaurant Week, which runs from October 22-28, with @joedistefanoqns Bajeko Sekuwa is one of the most famous restaurants in Khatmandu with its first US outpost in Sunnyside and just opened a second one in Irving, TX. Take a ride on the 7 line to the 46 Street-Bliss Street station. There is an earlier post in my feed for more information about this restaurant and other dishes I tried. Although I am not a sweet person, the dessert Ras Malai caught my eye. Translated from Hindi, Ras means juice and Malai means cream to describe how it was prepared. Cheese curds aka chhana are flattened and soaked in clotted cream aka Malai spiked with cardamom. They are cooked with milk and spices then finished with nuts. Others are also stuffed with kheer, which is rice pudding. I would describe the end product here more as a milky, slightly sweet dessert with a pleasantly grainy texture like a super stiff and cohesive ricotta disk rather than a cheesecake without any crust. This is finished with a sprinkling of pistachio. Really nice. I love that @sunnysideshines continues to promote the neighborhood restaurant. This is the seventh year of restaurant week. Foodie friends, please don’t forget your neighborhood eateries. They probably need your support the most with the awareness you can provide.

Step inside Mangal Kebab and take in the aromas of Turkish cuisine. While inside you will also see the owner, Engin, with his sleeves rolled up cooking up a storm on the grill. Engin takes great pride in his food and loves to be part of the daily action. Hummus, Baba Ganoush, and Kebabs are the crowd favorites most restaurant-goers are familiar with. The Lahmacun, however, is a traditional flatbread with toppings, resembling a savory pizza (sans cheese) that we highly recommend. Another dish that provides variation is the Pide, which resembles a calzone boat! Load up on toppings and enjoy the Pide with a Turkish tea. // Established in 2001, Mangal Kabob is a neighborhood fixture that we’re grateful for.
