New in Sunnyside
Parrot Coffee on Queens Blvd. at 46th St, just opened yesterday. For those not familiar with the Parrot Coffee (longtime exclusive to Ridgewood) they have cold cuts, many kinds of cheese, grocery items, olive bar, refrigerators with plenty of goodies - homemade taramasalata and eggplant-tomato spread, puff & phyllo dough, butters etc.
Not much unlike Massis and it doesn't appear to be fully stocked yet, but much more conveniently located right at the 46th St. 7 stop. I was told that they'll be open until 10 pm 365 days a year.
In other news, the newly expanded supermarket on the S side of Queens Blvd. (Key Food or whatever they call themselves now, they kept changing the name) is making a very good prosciutto/ lard bread. Comes in a small size also.
