There’s always a lot going on in Astoria, and the personalities of the main drags evolves with those changes. Right now, we’re seeing businesses opening, closing, renovating, and more. Here’s a roundup of the shifts happening on all the major avenues in the neighborhood.

Broadway

Via dei Greci

Look closely and you’ll be able to see the reflection of Amylos, across the street.

Via dei Greci is currently undergoing renovations, but, according to their sign, they’ll be reopening soon and offering the same pizzas, coffees, and frozen yogurts. It looks like their website is under renovations, too.

Via dei Greci
33-18 Broadway, Astoria

Amylos

Amylos, owned by the same folks behind Omonia Cafe, is still in the works on Broadway in the space formerly occupied by Uncle George’s, which closed in 2013. Amylos plans to be another Greek restaurant similar to Uncle George’s, but more upscale. As of this article, Amylos is slated to open December 17 right across the street from Via dei Greci.

California Farmers Market, just up from the Ditmars Boulevard station, is sadly closing its doors. After clearing out its inventory and selling it off for half price, it looks like the grocery store will be shuttered. No news as to what might move in, but we’ll keep you posted (and this WHA writer will miss it!).

 

Ninos AQ

Nino’s AQ has opened after much anticipation, and is serving up modern takes on Italian fare, as well as plenty of gluten-free pasta options and cocktails, and people seem to be really enjoying it! Stop in to see what’s on the menu. It’s a great spot for a slightly fancier night out.

Steinway

Long Island City Kleaners

Now open on Steinway.

Long Island City Kleaners used to be on Broadway, but has recently moved to Steinway. The clothing and lifestyle retailer, who takes their shop’s look from the classic NYC laundromats, closed its Broadway doors and reopened on Steinway on December 2. New place, but same style.

any news on Queens Bakehouse on Broadway? seems like they might not actually open…

Also it looks like work is being done on the old Warique space on 41st St and 30th ave!
