A restaurant is opening on 48th Avenue that will focus on selling Central Mexican sandwiches—known as cemitas.
The establishment, to be aptly named Cemita’s, will be located at 45-14 48th Ave. taking over the space that was proviously occupied by a Esmeralda.
The company will dedicate about 700 sqf. of its 2,000 sqf. space to the restaurant. The other 1,300 square feet will be used as a large kitchen area– used to cater corporate events and supply concession stands.
The owner of the restaurant and catering business went before Community Board 2 Tuesday to get a wine and beer license for Cemita’s.
Despite there being problems with some establishments in that section of Woodside, the board permitted the operator to keep his doors open until 2 am every night of the week.
