‘New American’ Restaurant to Open on Queens Blvd

Rendering Provided by Salt & Fat

Feb. 16, 2011 By Christian Murray

A new restaurant is opening on Queens Blvd. that will be offering “new American, small plate” cuisine, according to Daniel Yi who will be the chef.

The restaurant, which will be called Salt & Fat, is expected to open in early March. It will not be serving the standard appetizer and entree, Yi said, but small plates that people share with their friends.

Yi will take over the space that was previously rented to Go Koong, the Korean restaurant, at 41-16 Queens Blvd.

so excited for this! i live less than a block away, and am just hoping it comes with a liquor license!


Tasted and devoured food prepared by Chef Daniel Yi at restaurants he previously cooked at. I’m a big fan of his style and taste. Definitely looking forward to checking out the new restaurant.


Wow, I cant believe Chef Daniel Yi is coming. I’ve tasted his food before and its pretty solid stuff.
I hope it really does open in early March though.


I hope this new restaurant, other than having small plates, has reasonable prices as well, plus good service. We also need someone to go in there and be a food critic to check this place out. How about this web site going back in there and doing us a favor by sampling the food plus you can put this place on the map as well so the rest of our town will eat there as well. This will be a great addition to restaurant week which is usually in the spring. Sunnyside post thanks for this update.


Well, Cafe Marlene has a decent-sized wine list, and they’ve extended their hours later since getting their liquor license. (I’m just speaking on size of the wine list, not quality. I’m a two-buck-chuck kinda gal.)


Looks cute! Can’t wait to try it.

I’m hoping there will be a cute wine/martini bar?? Getting a bit sick of pubs… and I’d also like to try something different from Claret and Bliss!


Wow, this looks great! What a nice-looking storefront, too.

I love the small plate idea, but Daniel, if you’re reading: Please be vegetarian-friendly! May as well make it a place for as many people as possible.

I look forward to seeing the menu and can’t wait for this to open. Welcome to the neighborhood!
