The good folks over at Sunnyside Food stopped by the new Colombian restaurant Los Verdes that had their grand opening Thursday night. A place called “Manolos” (no, not about shoes) used to occupy that space, which apparently specialized in “great cocaine and mediocre Mexican food.” Hm.
The drink menu includes sodas, juices, a few beers, and milkshakes! Regular flavors include vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry; they also offer a “flavor of the month,” with Dulce de Leche being this month’s. (more…)
The Sunnyside Shines folks shared with us news about Los Verdes, a new Colombian restaurant, opening up in the neighborhood:
Los Verdes, a Miami-based Colombian restaurant, will open its first New York City location in Sunnyside next week! Please join them on January 17 at 9:00pm for their grand opening event. Located at the corner of 47th Street and Greenpoint Avenue, Los Verdes offers fresh, upmarket Colombian fast food and drinks, including kernel corn, quesadillas, hot dogs, grilled platters, homemade coleslaw, beers and fresh juices. They will feature late night hours until 3:00am during the week and 6:00am on the weekends.
