Support These Black-Owned Businesses Near Your Octagon Apartment

July 16, 2020

As protests and social change have made their way across the United States, many of us are trying to find ways we can help make a difference in our local black communities.

The best way we can support our local black community in New York is quite simple – we can support our local black-owned businesses by dining at their restaurants or purchasing goods from their stores.

Jamaica Breeze, located at 103-02 Astoria Blvd, East Elmhurst which is 18 minutes from your Octagon apartment, is a simple, Jamaican-themed nook with counter service known for their Caribbean fare and tropical juices.

At Jamaica Breeze, the chefs have been in the family and cooking for generations and are experts in cooking items such as jerk chicken, ox tail, curry goat and other homemade island favorites. Plus, they provide full service off-premise Jamaican catering.

Snowdonia, located at 34-55 32nd St, Astoria which is 11 minutes from your Octagon apartment, is a cozy gastropub serving upscale versions of bar food, such as burgers, as well as brunch.

The authentic Welsh restaurant is named after Snowdonia, a mountainous region in Northern Wales. They fuse inventive cuisine and quality regional craft beers, offering over 30 different varieties to satisfy every palate. They also utilize local purveyors to source as many ingredients as possible.
