ABOUT QUEENSEATS

QueensEats was founded on Instagram in February 2015 as a way for us to keep track of our personal food adventures and hopeful food adventures, but it quickly snowballed into a NYC borough encyclopedia. Three years later, we have grown to over 25,000 followers, gained about 5 pounds between us, and been inspired by the diversity and strength of the community we live and eat in. Our goal is to support local businesses, especially run by families, immigrants, and members of the community. We have been featured in publications such as the NY Daily News, Idlewild, WeHeartAstoria's The Paper, the Queens Courier; have collaborated with NYC Tourism #SeeYourCity campaign, the Barcelona Tourism Board, B2Boutique Hotels, and Des Hotels et des Iles, local and foreign restaurants and tour groups; and we are currently tastemakers for the Tell App. We love living here, and we are so happy to provide something for our neighbors. We hope that we have become a resource to learn about your community, break out of your current eating routine and comfort zone, and plan your travels and Queens weddings. Our motto? Embrace your community.

THINGS WE DO

#QUEENSEATSTRAVELS

When we travel we are looking for the memories; the best off the beaten path place, the best restaurant that represents that city; the best things to do if you are food and fun loving! As very intense food people, we spend months researching each place we go to and create our QueensEats guides to suite any particular New Yorker needs (and you all know we can be very picky)!

​

Current guides include: Washington DC, Chicago, Montreal, London, Barcelona, Paris, Zurich, and Guadeloupe with an upcoming feature on the California coast. 

QUEENS WEDDING

We have just finished planning our wedding that occurred on October 28th, 2017 here in Queens. We have a gathered lots of knowledge and connections here in Queens, and we would be happy to pass on what we have learned.

BRIAN AND ASHLEY

Social Media Managers and Founders

We have been happily running QueensEats for the last two years, and we have been together in romantic partnership for the last six. Ashley is a Queens native, but Brian is a transplant from Connecticut. He is truly the inspiration to this project as we began documenting our journey when Brian told Ashley he didn't like Thai food. IRL, Brian is a medical student at NYIT and Ashley is a teacher in Queens. We were recently married in our Queens- themed Wedding at the Metropolitan Building in Long Island City, Queens, NYC!
