Grill 43

this place is packed like its been open for years! Food is amazing but not only that, the menu priced are chopped so much


Not to be confused with the excellent Turkish Grill on Queens Blvd or Bar 43 across the street. I’m sure the food here is great but I think they could have chosen a more distinctive name and put up a nicer sign.


Michael B, I believe you can get pomegranate syrup at the Sunny Market on 46th Street and 43rd Avenue, which is Turkish. Don’t know about the limes, though –

I’m actually a little upset the old place is gone. It was the only place around here I could get persian dried limes and pomegranate syrup!

Sen. Ramos delivers potential death blow to Mets owner’s dream of a casino alongside Citi Field

State Senator Jessica Ramos dealt a serious blow Tuesday to New York Mets owner Steve Cohen’s dream of building a massive casino and entertainment complex on the parking lot adjoining Citi Field where Shea Stadium once stood.

Ramos announced she would not support the $8 billion Metropolitan Park proposal, rejecting major pressure from her colleagues in government, including Queens Borough President Donovan Richards, and community leaders from nearby neighborhoods, who urged her to support permitted use legislation that would be required to build the complex on state-owned public parkland.
