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.”
