Kitchen Patrol: Anthony Weiner Making Plans for Rockaway Restaurant

Look Who's Cooking

Anthony Weiner is a name you don’t forget.  And it’s now the name being associated with a fledgling non-profit called the Rockaway Restoration Kitchen.

On Idealist.org the endeavor is described as  “a social entrepreneurship that operates a healthy, sustainable restaurant in a hard luck community to provide training, on-the-job apprenticeship and placement in the culinary and food service sector for unemployed New Yorkers.”  

The goal is to operate a restaurant with “locally sourced food that satisfies the hunger of Rockaway residents, attracts visitors and serves up dignity and self-sufficiency by serving as a hands-on training ground to provide skills, real experience and job placement in the culinary industry.”

In simplest terms, the website claims the goals are nutrition, education, and restoration.  Weiner’s aim is to launch something that can help the disadvantaged in Rockaway.

For now, it’s idea in need of a little more baking. Weiner is still looking for a home for this enterprise. Although Weiner has not made any public statements regarding the venture he has had talks with Ron Moelis of CEO of Arverne Views (formerly Ocean Village) and others regarding possible space.

And the Rockaway Restoration Kitchen is doing more than seeking a home. It’s seeking an Executive Director.  The lengthy job description can be found on Idealist.org, a website with job listings for non-profits.

Weiner has made no public announcements and his name does not appear in the Rockaway Restoration Kitchen website but his site search and stated goals have been noted by a growing number of locals.

Although Weiner famously fell from grace, more than once, he often found solace in the receptions he received in Rockaway.  If a restoration is underway, it might suggest more than a kitchen.

    I’m pulling for Weiner !

  2. I hope that he is planning to make a restaurant maybe a diner where “rams horn” or sunset diner used to be. Since there seems to be no hsbc bank coming back and it is an ideal location and has parking. I am also hoping he isn’t just planning on giving to people at a “disadvantage” example: people living in the projects who already receive aid and food stamps. The middle class is suffering majorly!!! & a diner at reasonable prices would be a great advantage to all the residents of the rockaway. I believe if he placed a diner where the HSBC bank was on 116th, he would be very successful! just my opinion……..Well A LOT of hopes in this post…. I guess we SHALL see!!!!!
