New diner to open in Queens Plaza

queens & PaupersAug. 6, 2013 By Christian Murray

A new diner will be opening in Queens Plaza that will cater to local residents as well as office workers.

Queens & Paupers, which will be located at 27-08 Queens Blvd South, aims to be an old-style diner that is open from morning ‘til late. The diner, which has dark-timber booths, plans to be a place where office workers and residents can hang out.

Luca Toscone, the owner, said that the location made sense to him because there aren’t many restaurants in the area—especially for residents after work. “All there is around here is a coffee shop, pizzeria, liquor store and grocery,” Toscone said. “Therefore many residents have to go to Manhattan or Astoria on the weekends or at night for entertainment.”

Queens & Paupers is expected to open in about a month.
