Some Restaurant News

October 25, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

Piu Bello's old location. A seafood restaurant is under construction there.

In case you haven’t heard, Piu Bello Gelato, the popular restaurant/ice cream/dessert place that used to be at the corner of Austin St. and 70th Avenue, is in the process of taking over the entire Positano italian restaurant, located just a hop, skip and a jump from Piu Bello’s old location, across from the Post Office at the corner of 70th Ave. and what I guess would be called a service road to Queens Blvd. Piu Bello had been tucked in the back of the Positano restaurant for the past several months. It should be interesting to see what PB does with its new digs.

In other restaurant news, I hear Wafas, the Mediterranean restaurant at 96-08 72nd Ave/Metropolitan is moving to a bigger space. What I heard is that it will be on Metropolitan somewhere but if you know differently, please let us all know by posting a comment. Wafas has a reputation for some of the best falafel in Forest Hills, though I have yet to try it so I can’t personally confirm! Here is their menu, a little hard to read, but I think you can just make it out:

    I was in Wafa’s this Sunday and asked when/where she is moving. She still needs to rent out her current space as she has a few years left on the lease. So, I believe she is making plans to move but nothing is set in stone.

    That interesting. I spoke with Wafa last week and she told me that she just hired someone to help her with the prep work and was moving in to the old Wagging Tails location on Metropolitan. Wonder what changed.
