The owners of the Chinese restaurant on Vernon Blvd have been able to negotiate a short-term lease and will remain in business for the foreseeable future.
New City Kitchen Express, located at 47-31 Vernon Blvd, will continue to operate for at least three years as the owners were able to negotiate a three year lease.
In September Jennifer Cheng, whose family owns New City Kitchen, said that the restaurant was closing since the family was unwilling to pay the $10,500 month rent and $200 in monthly taxes that was being asked. However, after having signs in the window stating it was closing, the family struck a deal about two months ago.
The Cheng family has run the Chinese restaurant for the past 7 years. About 50% of the restaurant’s business comes through deliveries. New City Kitchen is one of the few inexpensive Chinese restaurants in the area.
