Get your Nepali food on in Jackson Heights and Woodside
Bon Appetit Magazine published “a list of ten less-explored cuisines and some recommended places to check them out.” We were quite pleased to see that they chose Queens – Jackson Heights and Woodside specifically – as home to great Nepali food – and Tibetan, Himalayan, and Bhutanese, which often go hand in hand with Nepali food. It’s a wonderful food culture and we are fortunate to be able to eat so much of it here.

They also get to recommend various events to museum staff that will be interesting to a teen audience, while learning the intricacies of art administration.

They will get to work in and enjoy a 90,000-square-feet, 97 bed new patient pavilion. It’s been a challenge with their current space, so this is a huge relief to the workers and kids they treat.
