Brazilian restaurant to open on Roosevelt Ave.


May 15, 2015 By Michael Florio

A Brazilian buffet/restaurant is about to open on Roosevelt Avenue.

Aroma Brazil, located at 75-13 Roosevelt Ave, is expected to open on June 8th and will focus on Brazilian barbeque, according to owner Sydney Costa.

Costa claims that there is shortage of Brazilian food in Jackson Heights and believes that he will be filling a void.

Costa said he has spent the past five years preparing to open a Brazilian restaurant. He said he had researched a number of neighborhoods and determined that Jackson Heights was the most viable.

“Originally I wanted to open in Astoria,” he said. “But there are already three or four Brazilian restaurants there… while there are none in Jackson Heights.”

“Brazilian food is becoming more and more popular and Jackson Heights needed this,” he added.

Costa said that his Brazilian restaurant will serve large portions at a good price.

The restaurant will offer steak, chicken and sausage all cooked fresh on a Brazilian barbeque. Customers will be able to choose the amount they want, and will be able to mix and match as much as they want, all for $5.99 per pound, Costa said.

There will also be a salad bar, soup and even desserts.

“If there is a kid who wants to try all of our cakes they will have the option to take a small piece of each,” he said.

The restaurant will be able to seat 45 people.

Met Council leader warns of ‘catastrophe’ for low-income families in Queens due to lack of pandemic-era federal food aid

Mar. 28, 2023 By Bill Parry

As an accomplished legislator, law professor and media personality with broad experience in government and not-for-profit organizations, Met Council CEO and executive director David Greenfield is well aware of the power of words. With Passover arriving on Wednesday, April 5, and with federal pandemic food assistance no longer available to low-income families in Queens, the leader of the nation’s largest Jewish charity organization warned of a coming “catastrophe” and called for the city to step up to provide $13 million in emergency funding for pantries to help New Yorkers facing food insecurity and elevated costs of living in the borough.

Pair of Queens community organizations will activate public spaces to celebrate local cultures

Two Queens community organizations are among an inaugural cohort of five groups citywide that will lead new projects to celebrate local cultures and histories in public spaces under a new initiative called The Local Center in a partnership between Urban Design Forum and the Association for Neighborhood & Housing Development (ANHD).

At a time when New York is grappling with an uneven pandemic recovery and as displacement looms large for communities and neighborhoods across the five boroughs, this new endeavor will convene interdisciplinary teams to transform and activate the shared spaces where cultural traditions flourish — and importantly, center the community visions and leadership that is too often left out of the process.
