Spring Fest at the Food Court at Queens Crossing

The Food Court at Queens Crossing is kicking off an exciting spring season! “Spring Fest” begins in March and runs through April. There will be various exciting events including the Easter egg painting competition (3/31), Live Cooking Demo (4/13), Paint Night (4/27), and the food court’s Anniversary Party cosponsored with Yelp on the 6th of April.

Queens Crossing, a state of the art, mixed-use development in the heart of Downtown Flushing debuted its new curated food court in 2017. Occupying approximately 10,000 square feet in Downtown Flushing, the vibrant and culture-rich corner of New York City, The Food Court at Queens Crossing is currently offering nine individual food concepts serving everything from Japanese curry rice and ramen noodles, Hawaiian poke bowl, Korean tofu pot, Taiwanese bubble tea, Chinese dim-sum and spicy small hotpot to Asian American healthy cuisine.

The design team of the food court sought to elicit the feeling of community by channeling a modern forest into the concept of the design. Structural columns are clad in natural finishes, wood tile floors fill the space and a palette of black, white, birch and green appear throughout. Two accent walls transport patrons to the forest, with a living wall covered in preserved plants and moss and a corresponding wall covered in a printed, floralgraphic. Undulating overhead lighting, a custom birch log chandelier and birch & black furniture create a welcoming, pleasant and comfortable space.
