As many of us (especially me) were sad to find out that Akti Greek Seafood restaurant closed down a few months ago, the other day I saw a new name displayed in the old space that piqued my attention. I'm still not sure about what kind of establishment it'll be, but I have my speculations with a name like Bar 30 Lounge. I'm a little deflated that the name sounds so generic - I hope that the place won't be a stereotypical "30th Avenue" joint with customary cafe fare and overpriced coffee.
And with the opening of Sugar Freak and William Hallet, per Meg's awesome new restaurant report, 30th Ave is certainly picking up good buzz. Give a shout if you know more about the new Bar 30 Lounge space, and I'll make sure to keep you informed as soon as I get the scoop. In the meantime, we'll keep watching...
Bar 30 Lounge (Opening Soon) - 34-19 30th Avenue, Astoria NY 11103
