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.

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.
