Sunrise Grill

We once got some take-out from Sunrise Restaurant and Grill, but last night we decided to visit in person. It’s located a little off the main tracts, on Greenpoint Ave near 41st street, and perhaps that explains why the rather spacious restaurant was quite empty. We were the only ones there around 7pm on a Friday night (although a few other people came in later)

In order to attract more customers, the restaurant has a number of special, including a free appetizer with all wing orders. They don’t have a liquor license though, which the waitress mentioned before we even sat down (she asked if we’re sure we want to eat there because of that!)

These complementary chips were quite unusual – they didn’t see potato based, but weren’t like tortilla chips either.

The menu is quite varied, with a whole breakfast section (diner-style), burgers, wings, and various seafood dishes. This entree is the “6 grilled shrimp”, which comes with a choice of two sides (sweet potato fries and cornbread seen here), plus some lettuce and tomato (not quite a salad). The shrimps themselves were quite meager in size, but good. With all the sides the $13 price is justified, but the focus of the dish certainly aren’t the shrimp.

The restaurant is supposedly famous for their wings (they showcased them at the Taste of Sunnyside event), so we had to try them. A batch of 15 costs $10. We got them with the medium hot sauce, but next time I will try the “hot” one, as they were quite mild (they also have a “nuclear” option, as well as some flavored sauces). The wings were definitely good, but not spectacular. This is probably the only place in Sunnyside to get good wings. And yes, that is in fact macaroni and cheese on the side. As a promotional special, they offered complementary sides to the wings.
