The popular Italian restaurant chain known as Patrizia’s plans to open a location right here in Maspeth. Renovations of the former McDonald’s location at Grand Avenue are underway and if all goes well the opening will take place sometime in March or April. One of the main issues the crew will have to contend with is building a staircase to the top floor. Judging by the décor at other locations, the place is sure to be gorgeous. If possible, they may even do outdoor seating. Grand Avenue has taken a beating over the past few years and having an anchor like Patrizia’s just may revitalize the area’s oldest commercial strip.
