In March, we reported that an Italian and Argentinian restaurant named ‘Go Nonna’ was coming to 10-50 44th Drive.1
We stopped by last week and saw that permanent signage has appeared for the new eatery, as seen in the photo below.
Owner Lawrence Garcia previously told The Court Square Blog that he’s hoping to open the doors to his eatery sometime in spring. “Nonna” is the Italian word for grandmother.
The restaurant will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner, and Garcia also added that they will be doing deliveries, as well.
Permits “TO CREATE EATING & DRINKING ESTABLISHMENT” were filed and approved in November with the Department of Buildings.2
An auto body shop at 27-07 44th Drive closed earlier in the month.
We walked by the garage over the weekend and saw that all of the equipment had been removed, as seen in the photo below.
While nothing has been filed with the Department of Buildings yet,1 it’s almost certain that this will eventually turn into a mixed-use building.
The lot is unique in that it forms an “L” shape around 26-04 Jackson Avenue. The Jackson Avenue side of the lot is currently vacant, and is mostly used as a parking lot.
A developer would likely want to purchase that building, which is currently a three-story mixed-use building that is also home to Mr. Wonton and a law firm.
Dog Island City is moving from 27-18 44th Drive to 22-15 43rd Avenue.
Signage appeared recently at 22-15 43rd Avenue announcing the new home of Dog Island City. Permits filed in April called for “COMMERCIAL RENOVATION AT 1ST FLOOR.”1
The business had opened at its 44th Drive location back in 2014.2
