Queens Comfort Moving to New Spot, About Three Blocks From Current Location

36-18 30th Ave.

Jan. 25, 2018 By Tara Law

Popular Astoria restaurant Queens Comfort appears to be moving to a new location about three blocks from its current space.

A sign for Queens Comfort was hung yesterday in the window of 36-18 30th Ave, the former location of Sugar Freak. The restaurant, which had announced that its location of seven years at 40-09 30th Ave is closing Feb. 4, released a video on Monday saying that it is moving to a larger location.

This fall, a sign advertising a new restaurant called Peanut Butter World appeared in the window of the space at 36-18, driving speculation on social media. The sign was replaced yesterday with a sign for Queens Comfort.

Queens Comfort’s owner, Donnie D’Alessio, could not be reached to confirm the opening.

Queens Comfort released a playful video on Youtube on Jan. 22 to announce that the restaurant decided to move because its current space has grown too small.

In the video, a Queens Comfort employee named George addresses a circle of vintage action figures, and tells them that the space in the restaurant is too tight.

“Fool! This space has sufficed for seven years,” says a villainous blue action figure.

“We’re crawling all over each other in the dining room for brunch!” says George.

“So be it. If we have outgrown this space the only course will be to move,” says Darth Vader.

The screen cuts to black, and says, “To be continued.”

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.
