As we previously reported, Ditmars Boulevard’s charming coffee shop 60 Beans is expanding, which is exciting news for fans of the comfortable, laid-back spot. Although many of the details are still under wraps, we were able to score a few exciting tidbits to hold ourselves over!

New additions to be introduced to the menu include pastas, charcuterie, and at least one burger. One of the most intriguing new items from Chef Domenick will be a fantastic-sounding pasta dish: Rigatoni with Pork Bolognese and Grana Padano (a fancy Italian cheese.) The house-made semolina rigatoni will be accompanied by Ground Berkshire pork, a fennel soffrito tomato bolognese and a Grana Padano finish.

The new menu items will be debuting in early fall, so keep an eye on our site, as we’ll update you the moment a date is announced! Once the menu expands, the hours will do the same: the shop will remain open later on weeknights to accommodate those looking to grab a bite.

The main focus on the new items is a commitment to high quality. According to our 60 Beans’ contact: “Chef Domenick will always look to utilize the freshest, locally/responsibly-sourced ingredients, like ingredients from Farmers’ Markets and local mom & pop purveyors of meat, cheese, and wine. Domenick is really looking forward to giving Ditmars Astoria something special but yet still feels close to home.” Sounds good to us!

Kind of how Flo started it out. The rents got so high that they eventually started focusing more on food and less about coffee. Can’t survive on just coffee in Astoria. Now you have to turn the cafe more into a restaurant/ lounge ala Tru, Flo, Avenue, Sanfords etc…
