Queens Restaurant Week 2012 is in Full Swing

Restaurant in Long Island City / Astoria / Sunnyside / Woodside are making excellent offers.

Queens Restaurant Week 2012 officially kicked off with a festive outdoor ceremony on Oct. 2 at Queens Borough Hall in Kew Gardens.

Despite a light rain, nine local restaurants gave away free samples of their specials to more than 500 appreciative diners. Borough President Helen M. Marshall was on hand to enjoy the cuisine and speak about Restaurant Week, which actually runs from Oct. 8-11 and Oct. 15-18 this year. Queens Economic Development Corporation Executive Director Seth Bornstein, Queens Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Jack Friedman, Melrose Credit Union Director of Marketing and Public Affairs Robert Nemeroff and Mabel Law from City Comptroller John Liu's office also gave speeches.

More than 125 restaurants are expected participate in Queens Restaurant Week 2012. Most eateries will offer one three-course, prix fixe meal for $25. Some establishments will also offer their specials Oct. 12-14 and beyond Oct. 18.

With more than 2.2 million residents -- about half of whom were born in a foreign country -- it's no surprise that Queens has an extensive array of top-quality but affordable restaurants. This diversity was on display during the kickoff event, where everything from Mexican to Cajun to Portuguese food was served. Add Cuban (Madera Cuban Grill), French, Greek, Irish, Italian, Japanese, Kosher, vegetarian and many other cuisines to mix for the entire promotion.

"We are thrilled to sponsor Queens Restaurant Week 2012," stated Melrose Credit Union CEO/President Alan Kaufman. "It is good for local businesses, good for consumers and a perfect match for Melrose's mission, which is to help local residents and business owners enjoy financial benefits for provident purposes as they purse their American Dreams. Plus, I can't wait to explore a few of the borough's great restaurants."

"Restaurant Week is one of our borough's most anticipated and popular annual events," stated Borough President Marshall. "It provides residents and visitors alike with great opportunities to sample at discounted prices the wide variety of gastronomical delights that can be found right here in America's most diverse county. I urge everyone to enjoy this opportunity while it lasts!"

"This eight-day campaign is the most delicious bargain in New York City because the prices are so reasonable and the food is so good. Plus, there truly is something for every taste bud," said QEDC Executive Director Bornstein. "It also fits in well with our Real Culture/Authentic Flavor program, which informs on the borough's cultural events and the wonderful places to shop and eat near those venues. Food, culture, fun, diversity, everything - It's in Queens!"

Queens Restaurant Week 2012 is a program of the Queens Tourism Council and is sponsored by Melrose Credit Union, jetBlue, Resorts World Casino New York City, Restaurant Depot, Tequila Sunrise of Bayside, the Queens Courier and The Best of the Boro.
