New Restaurant on 21st St near Ditmars
« on: August 17, 2009, 11:14:16 AM »
Hey all. Something new is going in the space between the hair salon and Mike's Deli on 21st St between Ditmars and 21st Dr. (Very near to Bistro 33.) It looks like a bar is definitely in the back, tables near the windows. Anyone know? I'm just so happy it's not a bank!

I heard something earlier in the summer about an ice cream shop going in a few doors down from Bistro 33 - perhaps that is it?

Oh how awesome would that be! I think you're right. I googled "ice cream near bistro 33" and came up with this:

I saw Gary (the owner of Bistro 33) in the new space one day. I didn't know if he was just being a friendly neighbor, or if he was involved. Looks like he is! This is very fun.

Hmm, interesting.  I hope they make it!  Kind of late in the summer year to be opening an ice cream shop.  Hope they've got other dessert ideas for the wintertime :)

I love ice cream year round, so I'm all for it.

It would be nice to have an ice cream parlor since Oleput is gone.

I hope they last, since I'm only a few blocks away.  It's gotta be hard for any businesses in that little area since there is not much foot traffic there.

With the school right across the street, ice cream makes sense!

Guys I stopped by last night around 9pm. They're just getting started, of course, but we all got a scoop of ice cream. I had the peanut butter swirl, and it was very good! I chatted with Gary about the location. I mentioned that I have been in the area for 4 years and the storefront had been empty, what was it before? He said when he was a kid it was a pizza place, then a taxi dispatch. I know the Bistro 33 spot used to be a boarded up old laundromat. The folks at Bistro 33 have transformed the corner of Ditmars and 21st St, for the better, and we're so glad! I'm stopping by again tonight with another set of folks, yum. They also have smoothies and coffee and the hours will be 11-11. Hooray!

Sounds awesome, okkichan!  I plan to check them out this weekend, if not before.
