The Sunnyside Shines Business Improvement District is holding its first-ever Sunnyside Restaurant Week for five days in the beginning of November.

Get ready to dine in Sunnyside.

The Sunnyside Shines Business Improvement District (BID) is holding its first-ever Sunnyside Restaurant Week from November 4 to 8.

The five-day celebration will offer participants a “culinary journey through Sunnyside,” featuring special three course dinner menus for $25 at 17 participating local restaurants. Six of the 17 will also feature two course lunch menus for $10.

Along with indulging in cuisines from all around the world, Sunnyside Restaurant Week will also feature site-specific art installations, titled “Conveying the Invisible,” curated by No Longer Empty, a contemporary arts organization.

The artworks for the week will bring visitors a combination of space, food and art.

“This collaboration has given exposure for emerging curators and artists and brings the art experience to new audiences,” said Naomi Hersson-Ringskog, executive director of No Longer Empty.

Three artists will be on-site on Monday, November 4 and the opening reception for the week will be at Venturo, located at 44-07 Queens Boulevard, at 5:30 p.m.

“Sunnyside Restaurant Week is an exciting opportunity to highlight the neighborhood as a creative district with great restaurants,” said Rachel Thieme, executive director of the Sunnyside Shines BID. “We hope to draw new people to the neighborhood as well as inspire Sunnyside residents to discover new art and restaurants they haven’t tried yet.”

The six restaurants offering the lunch menus are Arriba Arriba, Bliss Street Station, Bucharest Restaurant, Molly Blooms, Nodus and Takesushi.

The project is partially funded by the Avenue NYC program administered by the New York City Department of Small Business Services.
