Supporting my local restaurateurs

November 9

Starting out the week by doing a good deed, because I rarely hear from restaurateurs themselves instead of publicists (true story: one publicist today sent a press release to me about an image consultant, noting the importance of a first impression, and then sent out a correction because she had misspelled her client's first name), I’d like to help out Astoria restaurateur Yann Henri (non-New Yorkers, Astoria is in the borough of Queens), who says he opened a little French place called Bistro Les Minots last March at 47-16 30th Avenue (non-New Yorkers, that’s what Queens addresses look like, and they’re quite brilliant; the number before the hyphen indicates what cross street it’s near).

The owners are French, from Paris and Marseille, and the menu is traditional French bistro fare. They serve a $16.95 prix-fixe lunch and a $19.95 prix-fixe dinner.

They also have a $19.95 all-you-can eat moules-frites special on Monday. The restaurant’s phone number is 718-606-2535.
This message has been brought to you by the fact that I’m in a good mood today.

I wish I can open my own restaurant, too. Well, it's underway. We're very excited! We hope we can delight the neighborhood crowd with our food. I remember the day when we've applied for restaurant loans. We thought it was a difficult thing, but we managed to find a good deal that fast. I remember it being hard because my sister applied for merchant loans back then, and it took a lot of time out of her hands. Well, anyway, I'll visit that place that you've recommended. I like French food! Oh wait. Like is an understatement. Make that LOVE.
