Laly's Restaurant in former McDonald's on Roosevelt
« on: April 20, 2018, 04:48:07 PM »
Saw some work happening at the old McDonald's at Roosevelt and 76th this morning, so I poked around online and saw that someone has added a new restaurant, "Laly's," to the Google map for that address (https://goo.gl/zzDKB5) and it looks like they've filed with NYS under that address/name too. The one 5-star review is a "coming soon" note. Anyone here know more?

It says "New American" restaurant on Google. Maybe this will end up being the place the entire forum has been desperately seeking  ;D

Good news, but I was really hoping a Brooklyn Bagel would move in there.

Yeah, I actually reached out to them about that vacancy back in October (their reply in the pic attached).

Maybe if people keep asking they will move in here somewhere someday! It would be awesome. There's three of them in Astoria.

The sign above the former McDonald's says Laly's is a Mexican Restaurant.  Also on that block a new Tibetan restaurant is opening.

I saw the sign earlier today.  It says "American Mexican."  Wondering if we can expect Chimichangas.  ::)

"American Mexican" is a strange term, and sounds unappealing.  It evokes bad Mexican chain restaurants.  California-style taquerias or Tex-Mex cuisine can be great, but they don't use the term "American Mexican." 

Perhaps Laly's will attempt to reinterpret and elevate Americanized Mexican food, like Saw Shack has done for Americanized Chinese food.  If done well, that could be interesting.  Here's hoping.

I'm pretty sure the sign actually says "American and Mexican" and not "American Mexican." So maybe it will be something like bagels and tacos.  ::)

My guess is this will be a normal Mexican restaurant regardless of what the sign says

We recently saw a sign at Juquilla that said, solicita una cocinero- con experiencia con la comida mexicano.

Anyway- there is a new space for Brooklyn Bagel- it's big and close to train. Roosevelt/ 83/84.

I'll write them too!
