Sunnyside Grill: great food, reasonable prices - why is this place not packed?

I just had a great meal last night at Sunnyside Grill (and finished the leftovers today for lunch :)

This is definitely one of the better (if not the best) restaurants in the area, with very reasonable prices. But on a Saturday night, it was still pretty quiet -- which seems to be the case at a lot of restaurants in the neighborhood. I hope this one succeeds...

  1. Chef/Owner has impressive credentials. Chef in New York, London, Paris (The Savoy, Sefridges & The Hilton). It's on my short list. They have a website but it not working. Sure hope the community doesn't lose this place. It's at 46th & Queens Blvd.

    1. I always wanted to go... but it's in a ROTTEN location (for me). You just get out of the subway, you're aching to go home. And if you're walking back from the Gardens, you're not going to make it as far as QB. - if anyone wants to plan an eaty-trip there. I'll go.

      1. Well, I'm about 6 blocks from there but have never noticed it !!
        How long is it opened? 46th&QBLVD?
        Very interested - but these poor guys who open new places need to be a bit more media-savvy.
        Fliers,posters,ads, promotions etc.

            Same here - and I get off at that subway stop to do errands, like, all the time!

          2. Sunnyside Grill at 46th and QB? Oh, is this the place on the north side between 46th and 47th that used to be an indian restaurant? What type of food do they serve now?

            1. I walk past this place all the time, and the reason I haven't eaten there is because it looks awful, like the worst cheapo diner. I guess I've been superficial in my judgments. I tend to assume that the owner will do at least a minimal amount of decorating to make a new place inviting to enter, but not here. It's not dirty looking, just a nondescript Twilight-Zone kind of place. But now that I hear the food is actually good, I promise to give it a go.
