Congratulations to DiMaria’s Brick Oven Pizza and Kitchen for being the first restaurant in Little Neck to open an outdoor cafe. Owner Joseph DiMaria has already assisted the community which faces an eight percent unemployment rate and many vacant storefronts. On weekday evenings, there are many half empty restaurants.
Expansion of his restaurant by doubling the space inside and adding an outdoor cafe provided work for construction contractors and their employees. This provides more jobs for his employees and suppliers. All pay taxes and are our neighbors.
The free enterprise system made our nation great. Economic growth and the creation of wealth comes from millions of small businesses such as DiMaria’s, without the assistance of "Stimulus" taxpayers’ dollars.
Let us lift a glass of wine and toast Mr. DiMaria for his new outdoor cafe.
