Jackson Heights Armenian-Uruguayan Empire Expanding

JH Jill | Aug 24, 2003 12:38 AM

I almost forgot, as one of the few hounds to live in the 80s in Jackson Heights I must mention that Coco and Zeta, owners of La Nueva Bakery on 37th Ave. at 86/87th (and brother/sister-in-law of El Chivito owner) are opening their new La Nueva Café at the corner of 37th Ave. and 85th Street this week, can't remember if it's open yet or on Monday. Now the family has three in a row. They will undoubtedly serve some of the sandwiches de milanesa (cutlets, veal and chicken), lots of great empanadas and some of the different goodies from the Cono Sur that they serve in the bakery. But they have long made extra, more elaborate things, even roast suckling pig, on holidays. Now they will certainly expand their menu, and they know how to cook, so stop by and try them out. La Nueva is already our most enjoyable bakery/coffee experience, so I'm sure they'll do a good job on this one.
