STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — After Denny’s closed during the pandemic, a new restaurant concept sprang up at 4370 Amboy Road — Sofia’s Taqueria in its third location.
Co-owner Peter Botros said the Eltingville Sofia’s will be distinct with its daily breakfast program and weekend brunches. The restaurant is currently open for delivery and to-go. It will be open indoors and outdoors for sit-down service on Monday, November 8.
The Eltingville digs at 4370 Amboy Road may be familiar to many Staten Islanders. Before the 24-hour Denny’s it was home to a long-running Perkins. The closing day of the bakery and restaurant was Sunday, January 29, 2017.
COVID-19-related supply issues have slowed the opening of Sofia’s. Peter Botros, co-owner, has found it frustrating that he has not been able to obtain a liquor license for the location. He’s decided to open without it to get the operation up and running for the neighborhood.
Sofia’s has three dining spaces including the dining room proper, a smaller room off to the side that can be reserved for private parties plus an outdoor section.
