A Japanese restaurant will be opening on 37th Avenue next month.

Teriyaki Factory, a Japanese restaurant that plans to focus on–obviously–teriyaki dishes, will be taking over the space formerly occupied by the Subway sandwich shop at 83-12 37th Ave, according to Jason Lin, a co-owner of the new establishment.

“We hope to be open by the first week in May,” Lin said.

The restaurant will offer the standard teriyaki dishes, which will be cooked in front of the customer on a grill. However, Lin said he is keeping the full menu under wraps until it is finalized. He expects it to be completed next week.

The restaurant will be able to seat up to 10 people and there will be a big focus on takeout and delivery.

This is Lin’s first restaurant venture. He elected to open on 37th Avenue under the belief that there is a shortage of teriyaki restaurants in the area.

“The neighborhood is very diverse,” he said. “I think the people here would appreciate a teriyaki restaurant more than other neighborhoods.”

“There is also a lot of foot traffic,” he added.

Op-ed: An urgent call for revising NY’s criminal justice reforms to protect public safety

Apr. 11, 2024 By Council Member Robert Holden

In 2019, the State Legislature and Governor Andrew Cuomo embarked on a controversial overhaul of New York’s criminal justice system by enacting several laws, including cashless bail and sweeping changes to discovery laws. Simultaneously, the New York City Council passed laws that compounded these challenges, notably the elimination of punitive segregation in city jails and qualified immunity for police officers. These actions have collectively undermined public safety and constrained law enforcement effectiveness.
