I rarely prefer to go to a newly opened restaurant. Having been in the industry for so long, I do know that it takes time to fine tune things a bit once doors open and I feel it unfair to subconsciously rank a place in my mind before giving it a chance to get through the beta stage.
I was invited to Queensborough to check things out in an informal setting where I had a chance to chat with my bartender, the chef (Taylor Houseman), and partner (Mike Vizcarra). The new spot is beautiful and has kept much of the charm of the old building. OH THE STORIES that must be trapped in these walls!
