From the Times Ledger:
State Assemblyman Michael DenDekker (D-Jackson Heights) and City Councilman Daniel Dromm (D-Jackson Heights) joined the owners of the Jax Inn Diner for its ribbon-cutting last week.
The officials said the new Northern Boulevard eatery is filling a hole left by the Mark Twain Diner, a longtime Queens meeting place formerly situated on the spot.
“It shows a faith in the community,” Dromm said. “It shows faith in the economy.”
Brothers Anastasios and Peter Giannopoulos opened the Jax Inn Diner, at 72-12 Northern Blvd. in Jackson Heights, Nov. 7 and held their grand opening and ribbon-cutting ceremony Nov. 22.
Peter Giannopoulos said they decided to open a new diner at the spot since the neighborhood was in a “dire need” of one.
