New Brazilian BBQ/Asian Fusion Restaurant in Woodside

Does anyone know the deal of the Brazilian BBQ/Asian Fusion place that is coming soon on Woodside Ave b/t 60th and 61st streets?

  1. Been meaning to mention this again, not sure if anybody else has. It's called Katmandu Spice. Siestema wrote it up a few weeks ago. I went some time before that. A bit pricey for the hood perhaps, but the food we had was really good. It didn't seem very fusion-y, more like, here's a bunch of Brazillian stuff and here's a bunch of tibetan/nepalese stuff! I had the Brazillian bbq sampler and it was pretty delicious.

      I passed by the other day and thought I saw a for sale sign. Does anyone know if they closed already?

      1. re: donovt

        Yup. Closed. Seemed like the wrong concept for the area. I figured their days were numbered.

          I ate there once and wasn't blown away. Wanted to give them a second chance. Oh well....

          1. re: donovt

            I think if it was cheaper they maybe stood a chance.

    2. Think I saw a sign that this is reopening as a Japanese/Nepali place. Hopefully better than Yeti of Heizan down on Queens Blvd. Did not have a good meal the one time I went there.

        am I the only one tired of fusion?

        1. re: Jeffsayyes

          I think everyone is tired of fusion. But if they make good japanese food, great, and if they make good nepali food, great. And if they find some way to marry the two and it tastes good, also great. I think it's an easy crutch to show some sort of uniqueness, but a bit naive these days seeing as how it rarely works. But when it does and it's done well, well good food is good food.

      2. Walked by tonight and looked at the menu. Still the same name, Kathmandu Spice, but instead of Brazilian BBQ, a large sushi menu, and instead of just some tibetan stuff, what looks like a pretty large and thorough selection of items. Will give it a shot soon.
