Greenpoint Ave to Get Shoe Store, Indian BBQ Restaurant

Dec. 16, 2013 Staff Report

Two new stores are opening on Greenpoint Avenue.

A shoe store is opening between 46th and 47thStreets, next door to Los Verdes, a Colombian restaurant.  Workers were unsure when the store would open.

Meanwhile, an Indian/Bangladeshi/Pakistani BBQ restaurant is going to open at 42-02 Greenpoint Avenue.  There is no word on when that will open.

This was the former location of Thai Origin, which opened in December 2012.

Los verdes s doing exceptionally well. It s very well run and no problems there. Always busy. Keep up the good work


Great to hear about the shoe store and Indian restaurant.

Anyone know when that Yogurberry (or whatever it is) is going to open up on Greenpoint? They’ve had a “coming soon” sign for what feels like a year already!


How is that Los Verdes restaurant? Seems to do good business.

Looks like no love is going to Sofra which replaced Grill 43 which replaced Habibi which replaced the old El Shatar. The menu looks good but I gotta say the interior design is too refined.

I wish not every attempt at an Indian restaurant in our area was Bengali/northern Indian. There is enough of that all over the place and so far it hasn’t been good. Too bad nobody has attempted a decent place featuring southern Indian cooking, I think it would do well here.
