George Alexiov, the new owner of New Pop's Restaurant, said he plans on opening the Woodhaven Father's Day weekend.

New Pop’s Restaurant, a diner that has been in Woodhaven for more than 20 years, is set to open on Father’s Day weekend after having been closed for more than a month, according to the diner’s new owner George Alexiov.

“I like this neighborhood,” Alexiov said. “I’ve been trying to find a business to run for the past seven years and now I’m very excited that I will be serving the people here.”

Alexiov has kept the interior design the same and in the last two weeks, after signing a 20-year lease on the Jamaica Avenue storefront, he’s been busy restoring the walls and tiles in the diner.

The menu, which is traditional diner fare, also hasn’t been altered. To mark the grand opening, Alexiov said he plans on giving customers a free glass of wine or beer.

“Looking forward to see what the new owners do,” Grace Cangiola said on Facebook about the new management. “I haven’t been there for quite a while. There’s not a lot of choices to eat at on the [a]venue, it will be nice to have it back.”

Alexiov, who is originally from Greece, has had experience with running food businesses in Brooklyn and said he plans on hiring six workers.
