    Looks like it’ll be dimly lit and relaxing – excellent! Look forward to trying it! Glad to see more non-fast food / takeout options in the neighborhood.

    Sigh… I’m sure this new restaurant will be nice, however we need something different. We are over populated with Asian restaurants, dollars stores and shady cell phone places. IF there’s going to be another Asian restaurant, why not a ramen, pho or dumpling place? Korean food? How about a healthy sit-down option? Ethiopian? Anything! Anyway no disrespect to the new restaurant or it’s owners. Just griping.

    Stop complaining. No matter what they would open you would complain.

    I wish the owner best of luck, I hope this one stays open longer than others, I wish them the success of the restaurant next door (NY Style Eats). It’s just that these Asian places haven’t had the success probably due to higher than normal Asian food prices, but if they are decent enough and just gets going with food that appeals to everyone not just Asians, they will succeed!

    Good luck to the owners. It sounds like they know what they are doing.

    “He said his plan is to open a high-end Asian fusion restaurant that will be on a similar level as Salt & Fat and Venturo.”

    Can we please not make this place into one of those young trendy places? Does it really have to be high-end? I will still visit though.

    Venturo sucks, went there for brunch once and the food was a huge disappointment. No idea where any of the hype comes from.

    I hope they take down the TVs Nodus inexplicably put up. My husband and I ate at Nodus a lot (the food was pretty good there), and it really annoyed us when they put up the TVs. Even when you want to pay attention to the people you’re eating with, your eye keeps getting drawn to the moving images on the wall your facing, and it turns meal time in to a more difficult social experience.

    I’ve lived here for over 40 years and I welcome anyone who tries to improve this neighborhood. You will not please everyone all the time. We just don’t need any more 99 cent stores, cell phone stores, pawn shops, nail salons, and all the other crappy stores. They bring the neighborhood down.

    @Beenhere25years – I love Sunnyside Post. It’s very informative and entertaining with the comments from the “idiots in the neighborhood”. I like to know what other people think.

    Did Sunnyside post post the financial statements for modus? There are many reasons for a business owner to decide to close a business, some of which have nothing to do with financial failure.

  27. Hipsters are dirty and moronic

    Thank a hipster if your a homeowner? Has to be one of the stupidest things I’ve heard. How about thanking all the people that have careers in the six digit income category moving to the neighborhood and contributing to the census polls.
    It wouldn’t have anything to do with the high Asian population living in the area that contributes to the opening of this restaurant?

    Beenhere25yearandImajerk,

    I’m really impressed (not) that you’ve been here so so soooo long. Guess what? We haven’t, but what we all have in common is that we’re interested in the community and hope to see Sunnyside and its businesses prosper and NOT crash and burn after a few months. Look around you, there are a lot of empty store fronts. As a resident, I would love to stick around the hood for great entertainment/food and not have to commute into Manhattan or BK, and I have a feeling from the other posters that they probably feel the same way from looking at the comments. So your comments about us being ‘idiots’, shows how ignorant you are. If you don’t like Sunnyside post, exit stage left.

    Buh bye.

    Hey Hipsters are dirty and moronic, not sure if you realized this but most of these so-called “Asian” restaurants are frequented by more non-Asians in the neighborhood. Such a stupid comment. Replace Asian with white or European and see if you would say the same thing about a so-called white or European restaurant.
