A new bar serving whiskey, wings and more has opened in the Queens Plaza area, brought by the same team behind the popular Baroness bar and restaurant.
The Huntress, the name of the new “hunting-themed” spot, opened at 24-03 41st Ave. just before the new year, and is located one block away from its sister restaurant on Crescent Street.
The 65-seat restaurant takes over the former Millstone Tavern site, and offers a menu of appetizers, sandwiches, entrees, desserts, and, of course, chicken wings.
The wings are made with six sauce varieties, including a Nashville-style hot sauce, a guava-rum sauce, and a specialty white barbecue sauce. Prices are between $12 and $14.
Churro tots, made with sweet potato and cayenne, are available as appetizers, along with poutine, a candied bacon and peanut butter platter, edamame prepared with lime and pepper, and more.
Seasonal entrees include Chilean sea bass, venison pot pie, seared duck breast, and French onion soup with rib roast morsels. All entrees are between $16 and $23.
The restaurant also boasts a full bar with a craft cocktail menu, and an extensive whiskey selection with dozens of varieties available.
The Huntress is the second restaurant owned by husband-and-wife duo Melanie Lemieux and Kyle Radzyminski, who opened The Baroness at 41-26 Crescent St. in 2012.
Lemieux, a Montreal native, said she and her husband went for a concept that would depart from the Crescent St. restaurant, known for its large and unique burgers.
But The Baroness and The Huntress duo are certainly keeping to a general theme, with plans also in the works to open yet another restaurant, The Dutchess, in Dutch Kills soon.
The Huntress is open six days a week from 4 p.m. to midnight Monday through Wednesday, until 1 a.m. on Thursdays, and until 2 a.m. on Friday and Saturday.
