Tuscan Hills to reopen in new Queens Blvd. location Thursday

Aug. 2, 2017 By Jason Cohen

Tuscan Hills, a popular Italian restaurant located on Queens Blvd, closed its doors Monday and will reopen Thursday at the location of owners’ other eatery, Ovo Sodo, just six blocks away.

The Italian restaurant, which has been at 115-20 Queens Blvd for nine years, will reopen at 110-60 Queens Blvd. replacing Ovo Sodo, co-owner Marco del Peschio said.

Del Peschio said that although there was one year left on Tuscan’s lease, the rent was too high and Ovo Sodo, which opened three years ago, is a more attractive and profitable location.

“It didn’t make sense anymore to have two locations,” Del Peschio said. “We’ve been successful at Tuscan Hills, but it’s pretty much a dead area. There’s not much going on around here. The new location is much more centralized.”

According to Del Peschio, Ovo will be renamed Tuscan Hills and the Tuscan menu will be kept. The restaurant will also serve a number of items from the Ovo Sodo menu, such as the brunch menu and grandma-style pizza pies.

Op-ed: Protecting Forest Hills Stadium

Jun. 14, 2024 By Thomas Grech

After more than a decade since its rebirth, it is unfathomable to consider Forest Hills without our venerable 101-year-old Forest Hills Stadium. The iconic venue is an asset to our community in so many ways – from creating jobs, to supporting local organizations, to providing invaluable links to our community’s rich history. Amazingly, a small band of unrealists who fail to understand that communities are constructed on the mutual grace and respect of our neighbors, want to shut down Forest Hills Stadium for good.

Op-ed: Congestion pricing would do much more harm than good for New Yorkers

Jun. 11, 2024 By Assemblymember David I. Weprin

Like many residents throughout the five boroughs and across the New York Metro Area, I was pleasantly surprised by Governor Kathy Hochul’s decision to “indefinitely pause” the implementation of Congestion Pricing. Rather than seeing this as a cynical calculation, as some have alleged, I see the Governor’s decision as a deeply pragmatic response to the crescendo of public concerns that I and many others have raised for years. As the countdown to the June 30 implementation date neared, everyday New Yorkers did what we do best: we spoke up for ourselves and said we won’t accept a bad deal! I applaud Governor Hochul for having the courage not just to listen to us but to take a tough stand against this misguided policy.
