30th Avenue Restaurant Week to Take Place Next Month, To Coincide with Subway Station Reopening

May 23, 2018 By Tara Law

Astoria businesses will celebrate the reopening of the 30th Avenue subway station next month with a special restaurant week.

About 30 bars/restaurants located on or near the avenue will offer prix fixe menus, discounts and specials during 30th Avenue Restaurant Week from June 22 to July 1. 

The week will be timed with the reopening of the 30th Avenue subway station, which is scheduled to take place in late June. Many local businesses say the closure has hurt their bottom line.

“We’re hoping people will really want to come and support the area,” said Roseann McSorley, owner of Katch Gastropub and Eatery.

The week will begin on June 21 with a “Kick Off Party” with food and cocktails in the lobby of Sterling National Bank at 37-36 30th Ave. 

Businesses participating in the restaurant week will set up tables in the lobby and offer guests tastes of their best dishes.

Further details about the restaurant week, including a complete list of participating businesses, will be available closer to the opening day.

Business owners and potential sponsors are invited to contact Roseann McSorley at, or Frank Arcabascio, president of the 30th Avenue Business Association, at

Plenty of foot traffic while it was closed. People waiting for the bus and transferring to the Q19.


The decline in foot traffic due to the subway closures in Astoria was nice while it lasted.
