It’z All 4 U, a restaurant featuring Caribbean, Chinese, Latin and Southern dishes, just celebrated its grand opening at 20-01 New Haven Avenue in the Far Rockaways. It’s a sit-down restaurant that also features a bakery with freshly made baked goods. The owner, Michelle Buggs, is a trained pastry chef who left her job in Manhattan to open her own restaurant. She spent about two years fixing up this venue, which sustained major damage during Superstorm Sandy. Buggs had to install new pipes, fix electrical problems and revamp an illegal bathroom.
A number of local pols attended the grand opening on January 17th. Assemblywoman Michelle Titus stated, “To see the doors open today is refreshing, and another sign that we are Rockaway Strong. And the diversity on the menu reflects the community.” GMAP
