Mundo, the popular Astoria restaurant relocating to the Paper Factory Hotel in LIC, announced its grand opening for Friday, November 14th. The black tie event will feature passed hors d’oeuvres, drinks and live entertainment. The event is free, but you must RSVP here by November 10th. Then the weekend follows with a special pre fixe dinner on Saturday and tapas and cocktails in Mundo’s lounge on Sunday.

The space inside the Paper Factory Hotel looks great and the opening (which was initially scheduled for this summer) has been highly anticipated. Here’s a word on the food, from Mundo’s Facebook: “Mundo’s menu highlights the best of earthy Mediterranean and unique global flavors with a focus on fresh, seasonal ingredients from local vendors and farms, and homemade dishes.”

Yesterday, the folks behind the restaurant Mundo posted the above photo to their Facebook account. It’s a very promising glimpse of their new space at the Paper Factory Hotel; the popular restaurant is relocating from Astoria. The blog We Heart LIC has tracked the opening with anticipation, and posted this video interview with the owners back in May.

The restaurant should open in the hotel this summer. Here are some details about the food, from the website: “Mundo’s menu highlights the best of earthy Mediterranean and unique global flavors with a focus on fresh, seasonal ingredients from local vendors and farms, and homemade dishes.” Mundo is especially known for its Red Sonja, a Turkish dish made from red lentil and bulgur wheat served on lettuce with fresh lemon. Can’t wait!
