37th Ave 85th/86th St Jackson Heights Update
I didn't see that anyone had posted that Don Francisco's Argentine butcher shop (with other Argentine goodies) on 37th Ave (85th/86th) has gone out of business. It's a shame, and it doesn't look like they've moved anywhere else.
On a more positive note, Colony Wines, which was destroyed in our big February fire, is soon to be reincarnated in the old Cavalier Restaurant site on that same block. That was a great loss, being the only liquor store in these parts. They always carried a good selection of very reasonable South American wines, Malbec for the proletariat.
Also, there is now an Uruguaya Bakery across the street, next to Cafe La Nueva. I've not tried it, but it's nice to see that if finally materialized. That place was a papered-over space with signs about its arrival for sooo long.
