Xi’an Famous Foods at 26-19 Jackson Avenue is hiring

Signage has appeared advertising employment opportunities at Xi’an Famous Foods at 26-19 Jackson Avenue. Though construction hasn’t started yet, you can see the photo of the sign below.1

Xi’an has two other Queens locations in Woodside and also in Flushing, but it will be its first opening in Western Queens.

The retail space, owned by Rockrose, is the former home of See.Me art gallery, which closed in late 2015.2 Delivery is expected sometime in late spring.

“We’re very excited,” said Rockrose Senior Vice President Patricia Dunphy in an email to The Court Square Blog.

Here’s more about Xi’an foods from its website:3

Xi’an Famous Foods began as a 200 square foot basement stall in the Golden Shopping Mall in Flushing, N.Y. The original location, established in late 2005, was the first restaurant to bring the little-known cuisine of Xi’an to the United States, with signature hand-ripped noodles, secret spice mixes, and Xi’an “burgers” with housemade flatbread. Since then, we’ve expanded to nine locations in Manhattan, one in Brooklyn and two in Queens in total. As a family-owned business, we hope to reintroduce the world to the unique cuisine of our hometown: liangpi “cold skin” noodles, lamb pao mo soup, and wide hand-pulled “biang biang” noodles, all in its most authentic form.

A look inside the future home of Queensboro Plaza Dental Care at 42-15 Crescent Street

In April, we checked in at the future home of Queensboro Plaza Dental Care at 42-15 Crescent Street and noted that permanent signage had appeared on site.1 Check out construction photos of the interior, provided by. Dr. Nguyen below.

“We are anticipating opening the first week of June,” Nguyen wrote in an email to The Court Square Blog.

Its hours will be Monday and Thursday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Check out more from their website.

Queensboro Plaza Dental Care will also be participating in LIC Springs on Saturday from 12-5 p.m., and its booth located at 49th Avenue and Vernon Boulevard will feature temporary tattoos for children, a free oral health screening, and raffle prizes.

Here is more from our interview with Dr. Nguyen in April:2

This practice is a realized dream for me and my wife that we’ve been planning since 2015, when I moved back to New York after serving 6 years as a U.S. Navy Dental Officer. After thorough research, we found a great ground floor space in LIC, secured project financing, and partnered with industry specialists to design a beautiful practice built with comfort and efficiency in mind. We are excited to open a truly “mom-and-pop” business that will offer a refreshing dental experience.
