Novo, the Cuban restaurant at 7823 37th Avenue in Jackson Heights, closed this spring. Since then the space has sat empty, but the commenters on Jackson Heights Life have lots of hopes for this location — as one of them says, “Anybody want to solicit some NYC bigshots (a la mario batali, bobby flay) to open a nice little upscale restaurant up in this piece?!… someone’s gotta know peeps with fundage for such a wild endeavor!” The most recent news, reported earlier this August, was that the Thai restaurant Arunee, currently located at 37-68 79th Street off of Roosevelt Avenue, plans to move in. Have any readers out there heard more news?
