N/W Train to 30th Avenue
Finding good Indian food is no easy task in Astoria and that's why I wanted to let you know about a new Indian restaurant, Seva that will open tomorrow. Its opening will be a soft launch so they might not have all menu items available yet. But rest assured Veggies, Seva boasts a lot of vegetarian and vegan options for you to enjoy.
I was able to get a special sneak preview of the menu from the proud owner, Charu Rajput. A sampling is below and as you often do, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to see the whole thing.
