Massive Sports Bar/Burger Joint to Open on Steinway in April

Taking the space that was formerly Bud’s Ale House

Feb. 24, 2014 By Michael Florio

A successful Forest Hills burger joint called Twist and Smash’d is opening up a second location in Astoria.

The Astoria locale will focus on sports and it will be 5,000 square feet in size, with 52 TVs. It will be located at 34-02 Steinway Street (which was previously Bud’s Ale House) and is expected to open in April, according to Brianna Cano, the owner.

The massive venue (compared to the 1,400 square foot Forest Hills space) will also feature two indoor bocce ball courts and a full service bar. The establishment will be called Twist and Smash’d Sports.

The menu will be similar to its original location, which features a variety of burgers, salads and twisted potatoes on a stick. There will also be a bar menu that will include chicken wings and nachos.

Cano said she is excited about the Astoria venue.

“There’s tons of foot traffic and this location is perfectly positioned next to the bus stop and subway station,” she said. “We feel like Astoria is a very up and coming area with a lot of new business opening and people migrating to the area.”

The blog We Heart Astoria first wrote of the restaurant moving into the neighborhood last week.

3 men sought for armed robbery in East Elmhurst home invasion near LaGuardia Airport: NYPD

The NYPD is looking for three men who allegedly robbed an East Elmhurst man of tens of thousands of dollars during a home invasion early Monday morning.

Police from the 115th Precinct in Jackson Heights responded to a 911 call of an armed robbery at a townhouse located at 108-09 Ditmars Blvd. near 29th Avenue just south of LaGuardia Airport.
The victim had pulled up in front of his home just before 2 a.m. when he was approached by three suspects. One of them pulled out a firearm and forced him inside the townhouse where they stole around $30,000 in cash and a safe that contained an unspecified amount of jewelry, before exiting and driving off in a silver four-door SUV, police said.
