Title: new restaurant at Roosevelt/75th
Post by: dssjh on July 23, 2021, 02:26:26 PM
there's signage up outside the old medical supply store at Roosevelt and 75th, and it's going to be a restaurant called Gury's (or maybe Gary's -- it's written in script). looks like it could be nice and it's definitely quite large. they've installed porthole windows and replaced or cleaned the brickwork. could be close to opening.

Great! That place was an eyesore. Almost anything well maintained will be an improvement.

I literally came back on here after like two years of dormancy to find out the 411 on this place, having just noticed the new facade today. Having a second kid does terrible things to your priorities. Hahaha.

You've been missed. Congratulations on #2!

Looks to be a Hispanic food court?

If so, it'll probably do ok.

i'd agree. the Asian food courts in Elmhurst have done well. eager to see the offerings.

Actually, the elmhurst food court (HK Food Court on 45ave) has been so dead due to the pandemic, that only a handful of vendors are operating as of now :( Unlike in Flushing with more foot traffic, this location is more off the beaten path and I feel so bad for the businesses. Gury's is on the main road, so should have no issues attracting customers.

I feel like by "food court" they probably mean a steam table - not a mixture of tenants. The sign says Bakery and Restaurant.

I walked by tonight. The brand new shutters have already been heavily graffitied.
This is why we can't have nice things.

Yep. Not to mention the fact that there is seemingly no one in this neighborhood that is a skilled graffiti artist. There's the person who paints the giant heads, but they seem to be a one trick pony.

You're totally right.  All we get is their name/tag scrawled messily over the gates. Elsewhere in the city, I have seen magnificent graffiti art that belongs in a gallery.

New bakeries...just what we need! Seriously, how does anyone stave off diabetes and heart disease around here? Temptations everywhere.

First world problem?  ;)

Well better than another chain or a bank. There's a steam table in the back, so it's good for lunch/dinner too.
