An annual event celebrating the best of Sunnyside’s restaurants and foods will come back for yet another year this month.
Sunnyside Restaurant Week will kick off on Sept. 23 and go through Sept. 29, offering multi-course lunches and dinners from 45 restaurants—the largest count yet—starting at $25.
Cuisines represented in restaurant week include Japanese, Ecuadorian, Italian, Irish, Turkish, Tibetan, and more.
Most of the restaurants are located along Queens Boulevard or on side streets, with many participating locations also on Skillman Avenue and Greenpoint Avenue. Restaurants include Ariyoshi, Boon by Moldova, Cardamom, Cumbia y Sabor, De Mole, SoleLuna, Takesushi and Tito Rad’s.
Each restaurant will serve a three-course dinner menu for $25, with several places also offering additional lunch specials. A few spots will also offer a $25 dinner menu for two people.
This year’s restaurant week also includes a contest for diners. A customer taking part in a restaurant week deal will receive entry into a raffle to win dinner for four at a participating restaurant of their choice—a gift valued at $250.
In another addition, restaurant-week goers can also nominate outstanding servers to win a prize at the end of the week-long event. The server with the most nominations will be recognized will the “Star Server” award by the Sunnyside Shines BID, and will receive a $50 gift card from the group.
Restaurant Week, organized by Sunnyside Shines, is aimed at promoting the areas restaurants and highlighting the neighborhood as a culinary destination.
A list with all participating restaurants is posted on www.SunnysideShines.org, with restaurant week menus to be posted as they become available.

Great to see Sunnyside Shines getting participation from restaurants on Skillman (who are not in their district). The Skillman Project/Sunnyside Chamber have been completely absent of leadership this year. I wonder if they’re even doing holiday lights?
Better take the 7 train or walk. Where will everyone park to allow out of neighborhood people to support the Sunnyside restaurants, JVB?
If you only took a look at the plan you’d notice that exactly ONE metered spot was removed on skillman. There are more restaurants participating in this non-Sunnyside Chamber event than parking spots affected on blocks on either avenue. There is also a more than ample offering of commercial parking in the area, so parking will not be problem whatsoever.
Lol what? Just take the 7 train. Stop being dramatic.
yeah, i have enough of the horrid 7 train during the week. i dont need to suffer through it during the weekend too.
dont bother bringing your car and taking up even more room than you already do
