Reopening NYC: Queens Restaurants Weigh In

We’ve all heard about the struggles of restaurants, in New York City and elsewhere, but what about the ones we know and love in our own neighborhoods? It’s a question that’s weighed on me, as the few I’ve been in touch with personally in Jackson Heights have expressed many struggles over the course of the pandemic. A lot of the businesses here in our part of Queens are small and immigrant-owned, compounding the difficulty of obtaining financial aid. So in recent weeks I’ve spoken or emailed with a few restaurant and street cart owners in Queens to ask: How has it been for you these past few months, and what does “reopening” look like to you?

Below are four interviews, edited for clarity, with the owners of Arepa Lady, Antojitos Doña Fela, The Queensboro, and Nepali Bhanchha Ghar. They’re different sorts of restaurant businesses, but for each one thing remains constant: The future is wildly uncertain. For these and other restaurants you love, wherever you might live, the best thing to do is simply support them—order takeout or delivery, dine in if it’s possible and you’re comfortable with it. And post and share about them afterward, to help spread the word.
