A restaurant and bar serving food that blends contemporary American and Korean cuisine will host its grand opening in Flushing this weekend.

The Sweet Sap, located at 189-11 Northern Blvd, aims to serve dishes that honor Flushing’s Asian heritage, as well as the style of modern American food.

For dessert, matcha “panda” cotta and coconut rice pudding are on offer.

The restaurant will also feature a terrace and “restaurant-in-a-home” style decor.
