I think that we were all sad when Astoria's beloved Mano's Papaya--cheap hot-dog and fresh juice haven--became a Bank of America. How lame and sad! But don't fret because Mano's is coming back, just ten blocks West on 30th Avenue and 30th street. I spied its new location yesterday and it looks like they'll be opening in a couple of months--we'll make sure to keep you posted.
Although the new location isn't as high profile as before, it's still in a vibrant, busy area across the street from Trade Fair and close to 7 Eleven.
I personally cannot wait until the new Mano's reopens--their fresh fruit smoothies, which could be customized are my favorite. The dogs are not bad either and you could get them for cheap--under $2. We'll see how prices are affected by this new location but we'll make sure to keep our eyes peeled and to keep you informed.
Mano's Papaya: 30-15 30th Avenue, Astoria, NY 11102
