Astoria News and Rumors – Food, Food, and More Food Astoria News and Rumors, MLK Weekend Edition Photo by reader Kylie C. Here is a roundup (in no certain order) of Astoria and Western Queens tidbits. Simply Fit. “Simply Fit Astoria will be celebrating the Grand Opening of their new studio this Saturday, September 17th! Starting at 8:30am, the studio will feature free classes to both members and non-members throughout the day. Complimentary snacks and cold pressed juices will be provided courtesy of Aloria Cakes and Fusion Juice Bar. The first 50 visitors will also receive gift bags.” 37-20 Astoria Blvd Mighty Balls has closed (as per Yelp). 35-11 34th Avenue The Wolfhound opened on 30th Ave in early September. This is the location of previously failed businesses—that pirate bar (Fishtales) and the pizza-Bulgarian restaurant (Trakia). Here’s hoping The Wolfhound will have better luck. Along with drinks, they also have a little Irish grocery selling tea, biscuits, crisps, and baked beans, among other things. 38-14 30th Avenue Little wine, cheese, and chocolate bar Gizi is for sale. It includes the wine bar, basement office, and backyard garden. 8 years is left on the lease, which is apparently “below market.” 47-34 Vernon Blvd WilliamsBurger is for sale. This burger joint that moved from Williamsburg to the LIC/Sunnyside border has its lease up for grabs—8 years with 5 year option. The restaurant is 1,000sf and has a small backyard (unused currently). 36-17 Greenpoint Avenue The old Bear space still looking for a tenant. 12-14 31st Avenue Reddit reports that La Vita Mia is back open with new owners. 28-01 24th Avenue The old Ghandi space is going to be Tikka Roll House. Sounds like kati rolls to me. 34-14 30th Avenue Beer Closet, which we thought was closed, is remodeling and will reopen Thursday, September 15. 5-37 51st Avenue Twitter Facebook Email Print BearBeer ClosetGiziLa Vita MiaMightyBallsroundupsimply fitThe WolfhoundTikka Roll HouseWilliamsBurger About Meg Cotner Meg Cotner was trained as a harpsichordist and now works as a freelance writer and editor.

Reply Lindsey September 15th, 2016 I wonder if Wolfhound has the same owners as the previously failed tenants. I walk by everyday, and it seems like it’s a new spot every other month. Best of luck to the spot. Reply Evan September 15th, 2016 Considering I went about a month ago to Mighty Balls, walked inside and waited no joke 10 minutes and no one ever appeared at the counter and so I walked out…not surprised they closed. Bummed about Pizzastoria! Reply Lauren September 15th, 2016 That Mighty Balls space is totally doomed. For some reason no one wants to eat past Cafe Bar. Reply Andrea September 15th, 2016 Any new info on what’s going into the construction site on 31st between Ditmars and 23rd Ave? Reply Alex September 14th, 2016 Pizzastoria has closed, too. Reply Wynne September 15th, 2016 I was wondering about that as I walked by it last weekend. Not there long, but another pizza place is the last thing the block/area needed.
