Who told you this? Will this new beer/cider bar be run by the folks from Addictive? Would be great to have a place like that in the neighborhood.

Patrick did, and it's the same folks, Patrick and Francisco!

Saw the doors open at The Queensboro  and had a chat. They're working hard on getting the place up and running.

80-02 Northern Blvd -- formerly a carpet store.

(Obviously they didn't keep up with updating the tumblr page but at least you can see what the space looked like at one point.)

I just walked past the Queensboro and peeked through the open back door. The chef Tony saw us and was kind enough to give us a quick tour. What a TERRIFIC space. Lots of work happening so I couldn't see the finished detail but it's a large space with a big bar and open kitchen.

Opening sometime July I think.

Very excited.

This is really really exciting. The size of the space could be a liability if they can't keep it in use. Hopefully they have a decently affordable rent.

Where's that child's hardhat?! Hahaha. It's great to see things are actually moving forward. Eager to know what the final product will look like. Judging by the size (and the state of construction in that photo), probably looking at something in the Fall, at best. Nevertheless, really exciting!

This is too much good news, I am not sure if I can handle it :). This and Stew's restaurant. And seem like Brunson building is making progress too.

Some light investigative work has revealed to me their architect, who has additional photos on their instagram account:

Copper clad bar: https://www.instagram.com/p/BR9CmB4B3MM/

Brick-framed window openings: https://www.instagram.com/p/BUR6bnxFvEX/

There are others, but they're really old (over a year old). These were the most recent.

I walked by on Saturday and saw the door open. I popped my head in and had a quick chat to one of the owners. It looks GREAT! Renovations are pretty much done and he is waiting on some final permits. Hopeful of having them in a month.
