The Michelin Star-rated restaurant recently closed after a fire in the boiler room of its Forest Hills establishment. The owners are currently assessing the damage and hope to begin the restoration process soon to continue serving the community.
Luckily, their fans and those who have always wanted a taste of their incredible cuisine will be able to do so every Saturday and Sunday from Nov. 28 through Dec. 20, and the night of Friday, Dec. 4, during the Queens Holiday Market.
Other locals joining the market are Mahalo Bakery, serving its sweets with a Hawaiian twist, and Noctua Diem, a local artisan who makes award-winning beauty and skin care. LIC Flea & Food fans will be happy to see some of their favorites when Sam’s Fried Ice Cream, Dutch Kills Klotheing, Fiza Fashion and Jessy’s Empanadas join for another great holiday season.
“We are thrilled to bring a mix of local and LIC Flea & Food favorites as well as new incredible vendors to the Queens Holiday Market,” said Elizabeth Aloni, market director. “It’s a one-stop shop for food, unique gifts and sweets, along with an arcade and the all-Queens Beer Garden. Have fun while finding one of a kind gifts for everyone on your list. It’s time to look forward to holiday shopping.”
The Queens Holiday Market will be open Saturdays and Sundays starting Nov. 28 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and on Friday, Dec. 4, from 6 to 10 p.m. in conjunction with the Queens Holiday Market Tree Lighting at Atlas Park. The tree lighting celebration will include a visit from Santa, the Martin Luther High School Choir, giveaways and much more.
