Jackson Gyro Opens On 37th Avenue, Offers Greek Street Food and American Cuisine

Jackson Gyro

Feb. 9. 2018 By Tara Law

A new restaurant that offers Greek street food and American cuisine opened in Jackson Heights this week.

Jackson Gyro, which opened Monday at 85-30 37th Ave, serves American classics, such as breakfast platters, bagels, sandwiches and burgers, alongside Greek specialties such as gyros, souvlaki, octopus, tzatziki and falafel.

The restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

The establishment is owned by Flushing resident Alex Doulaveris, 25, along with his father, Jimmy Doulaveris, and uncle, Angelo Kassimis.

The family owned Bagel Café, which operated out of the same address for several years. The family decided to close it and overhaul the venue.

Doulaveris’s family has a long legacy of running restaurants in New York City. His grandfather is the former owner of the historic Munson Diner, which was located in a dining car in Hell’s Kitchen for decades.

Doulaveris also has a deep connection to Greece. Much of his family still lives in Athens, and he tries to visit them every other year.

“It’s definitely a nostalgia thing,” said Doulaveris of the food he serves. “When I go to Athens, this is the stuff I eat.”

The restaurant is open from 6 a.m. to midnight daily.

Nice!! I moved from Astoria to JH last year and sometimes I do not feel in the mood to go to Astoria especially with all the traffic, subway and utilities work going on now. It’s great to have some Greek food around here now.

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.
