Hosting Tanabel & Queens Dinner Club on May 6th

The Queensboro will be hosting on May 6th at 7pm

Dear friends and neighbors, we hope you are all well.


One of the reasons we started closing on Mondays is because we felt that it would give us opportunities to try things that wouldn’t be possible during a regular evening. So we are very happy that on May 6th Tanabel along with The Queens Dinner Club will be hosting a dinner at The Queensboro at 7PM. This will be a Syrian Iftar dinner, on the first day of Ramadan, celebrating the cuisine of Syria.


Tanabel is an organization that employs refugee women with exceptional talent in the kitchen. We’re looking forward to working with them and trying out their food! The cost per person is $70 inclusive of service (drinks will be extra) and the menu for the night is below.


You can buy your tickets for this event right here!
