Owners of Sweet Afton to Open a Restaurant Near Ditmars station

May 4, 2014 By Michael Florio

The owners of Sweet Afton, the popular bar and restaurant located at 30-09 34th St, are opening another Astoria restaurant later this year.

The new eatery will be located near the Ditmars subway station, at 29-12 23rd Ave, according to a real estate expert who worked on the deal.

On Friday, a Sweet Afton manager confirmed the 23rd Avenue location, but stressed that the new restaurant will not be open for several months. The restaurant will operate under a different name and will have a different menu, the manager said.

The owners already have five bars and restaurants across New York and all of them are different, the manager said. He said the owners picked the 23rd Avenue location due to the vitality of the area.

“Astoria is a busy neighborhood that is growing every day and people still want more bars and restaurants,” the manager said.

The owners couldn’t be reached for comment.

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.
