The Flushing Business Improvement District is launching its first ever restaurant week on Monday.

The weeklong event, which goes from May 23 through May 31, aims to showcase 15 restaurants in Downtown Flushing.

The restaurants will offer prix-fixe lunch and early dinner specials starting at $20. The establishments participating will serve a variety of Asian cuisines, such as Japanese sushi, Malaysian food, Spicy Sichuan dishes, North China BBQ, Taiwanese food and more.

“We are hosting Flushing Restaurant Week because we want everyone to know about the unique dining experience that can be had in Downtown Flushing,” said Diansong Yu, the executive director of the Flushing BID. “We want people to try the hotpots, the barbeque and all the restaurant styles.”

In recent years, the BID has held a “Flushing Food Festival” at the Sheraton LaGuardia Hotel which is essentially a sampling event where participants get to taste items from an array of restaurants over a 2 1/2-hour period.

Yu says the festival has been popular but a restaurant week aims to lure foodies to the establishments themselves.

The public can claim a free $5 voucher that can be used at any one of the participating restaurants from the Flushing BID’s info booth. The booth will be open in front of the Flushing library between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Sunday.

The participating restaurants and their menus can be found at the Flushing BID website.

College Point building inspector criminally charged with taking bribes to close complaints: DA

A College Point man who works as an inspector at the city’s Department of Buildings is accused of accepting bribes in exchange for overlooking potential violations at various Queens locations on multiple occasions since January 2023.

Zabihullah Ibrahimi, 42, of 22nd Avenue, was arraigned Thursday in Queens Criminal Court on bribery and official misconduct charges for taking cash from homeowners and then closing complaints about their property. In one case, he allegedly asked for $3,500 from a property owner and, when she said she had no cash, he directed her to go to a bank and get it while he waited at her home, according to Queens District Attorney Melinda Katz.

Op-ed: An urgent call for revising NY’s criminal justice reforms to protect public safety

Apr. 11, 2024 By Council Member Robert Holden

In 2019, the State Legislature and Governor Andrew Cuomo embarked on a controversial overhaul of New York’s criminal justice system by enacting several laws, including cashless bail and sweeping changes to discovery laws. Simultaneously, the New York City Council passed laws that compounded these challenges, notably the elimination of punitive segregation in city jails and qualified immunity for police officers. These actions have collectively undermined public safety and constrained law enforcement effectiveness.
