Peculiar restaurant opening in little manila -- woodside

Eric Eto | Sep 19, 2002 02:11 PM

I was walking by the Filipino section of Woodside on Roosevelt Ave (69th St) and noticed a restaurant open in the space that was the defunct Krystal's steak house. There were no printed menus but only a few items on a specials board. The place is called Krystal's Restaurant (or was it Cafe?) Venezolano. The menu looked pretty latino, so I'm assuming it's a Venezuelan place, but why the Krystal's moniker, especially with Krystal's (the Filipino place) not 20 yards away? They look like they're still trying to fix up the place and hire staff, so it might not be the best time to try it out. But in case anyone has tried it, is there anything to report?
