A new café has opened on Greenpoint Ave.
Eliseo Suarez, a Sunnyside resident, opened the Greenpoint Kitchen about 10 days ago, which is located on the triangular site at 40-15 Greenpoint Ave. (btwn 40th and 41st Streets and Greenpoint and 48th Avenues).
The cafe sells a range of items from eggs to meatball heroes. See menu
Suarez had owned the Good Point Café, located at 39-19 Greenpoint Ave., but moved up Greenpoint Ave to what he deems a better location. He also changed the café’s name.
Stopped by on the 22nd; had a vegetarian wrap sandwich with a beautiful little salad. Very tasty.
Met Mr. Suarez. He has to be one of the most pleasant of persons I’ve ever encountered. I saw him instructing his new (inexperienced; but, competent…and, also…nice) staff in the gentlest and most respectful way. His pride in his business was evident. The space, already charming, is clearly a work in progress, and will be even more interesting soon, he let me know. In an easy conversation, he mentioned his children almost right away; he said that with a new business, he wasn’t able to see as much of them as he would like.
I hope everyone is happy and healthy this Christmas; but, if you’re down, go have a cup of coffee and a bite and a chat with Eliseo. It’s a tonic.
I had breakfast one morning at his old place. Good food and prices — and he’s a super nice guy. I’ll make sure to have lunch there once a week!
I hope a lot of people stop by there… all you greenpointers give him your buisness… he seems like such a nice man… we want him to stay in business
I’ll have to stop by there.
I had a pretty good experience dining there: http://sunnysidefood.wordpress.com/2011/12/10/greenpoint-kitchen/
