I was delighted when I walked by Ditmars the other day and saw that a new bagel shop called Astoria's Finest Bagels is in the works. Keeping my eye on this place for quite some time, it looked ready about a month ago and since then not much progress has been made. Bummer. My guess is that they're waiting on a permit?
Anyway, the place looks promising and is centrally located, on Ditmars in between 32nd and 33rd street. Could be a good place to stop on your way to work for a cup of coffee and a bagel, of course. Even though my current favorite in the nabe is Brooklyn Bagel & Coffee Company (they have the best, fluffiest bagels in all of Queens, in my opinion), a new place could be great to mix it up a bit.
Shoot me a comment if you know more about Astoria's Finest Bagels and when it's finally going to open.
