Alobar, a Vernon Boulevard restaurant known for its unique food and drink selection, is about to launch a limited-time special menu that it will offer from Tuesday, June 21, through Sunday, June 26.

“Chef Greg’s Summer Beer Pairing Menu” will be available to guests from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm during the six day period, where a dish prepared by Alobar’s chef Greg Profeta will be paired with a summer ale by Captain Lawrence Brewing Company.

Pairings include: “Flushing” Ribs with sambal glaze, lime, pickled daikon and watercress, which will be coupled with a Captain Lawrence Sun Block IPA; Housemade potato pierogies with aged cheddar, scallion and crème fraiche will be joined by a 4.8% ABV Clearwater Kolsch; and Berkshire pork schnitzel with cheddar grits, pickled ramps, fiddlehead and charred lemon will be paired with the Captain Lawrence Freschester pale ale.

For dessert, Toto’s Ricotta Cheesecake with mixed berry compote will be served with the brewery’s Effortless Grapefruit IPA.

Profeta says he has tasted all the beers and determined the best pairings while visiting the Captain Lawrence Brewing Company in Elmsford, NY.

The seasoned chef, who grew up in Queens, said he decided to join Alobar because he wished to work at an award-winning restaurant in the borough he grew up in.

“I was getting sick of Manhattan,” Greg said. “Plus, I really liked the owner, Jeff Blath, and the concept he had going at the location.”

Profeta joined the establishment in October 2013. Prior to that, he worked at a number of restaurants including Telepan, an American restaurant that was located on the Upper West Side before it closed.

Chef Greg also lived in Italy for a period of time to perfect his craft, and has had training in French cuisine. Profeta said he uses his background to take local New York products, and infuse Italian and French cuisine with an American twist.

Long Island City teen sentenced in fatal shooting of ‘beloved’ school teacher at Queensbridge Houses in 2020: DA

A Long Island City man on Friday, Jan. 28, was sentenced to 19 years in prison for the 2020 fatal shooting of a public school social studies teacher who was out walking his dog when he was caught in the crossfire during a confrontation between gang rivals in broad daylight, just blocks from his home, according to Queens District Attorney’s office.
