The beloved New Orleans-inspired Sugar Freak will officially reopen in Astoria on June 26.

The restaurant, previously located at 36-18 30th Ave., closed in Feburary when owner Michele Addeo and restaurateur James Paloumbis announced it would reopen at 37-11 30th Ave. The new space previously housed the restaurant MexiBBQ.

Now, Sugar Freak will open at the bigger space and retain the “authentic homegrown feel” including the vintage plates on the walls and the tin ceiling.

“Everything is upcycled, recycled, and repurposed,” a spokesperson for the restaurant said.

In addition to its old menu, the restaurant will now offer new seafood boils, waffle tacos and Beignet Eggs Benedict. Freshly baked cakes and pies will be added to the dessert menu along with the deep friend banana pudding and traditional dump cake.

To make the ordering process smoother, customer will now order their meals at the counter before taking a seat. Sugar Freak will also offer delivery service, catering and lunch service.
