THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED The Queen's Hideaway Restaurant Review

: The Queen’s Hideaway made a splash as Greenpoint’s first real destination restaurant. Serving Southern-inflected cuisine with a rotating seasonal menu, the low-key BYO-spot earned a following outside the neighborhood. A liquor license, an exterior face-lift, and a pricier menu then brought the restaurant into more grownup territory. The wine list features “cheapie” bottles starting at $27. $12 entrées, meanwhile, are bumped up to $18. And complementary boiled peanuts are no longer offered. The more professional approach makes us a tad less forgiving of tepid sides and overcooked, leathery meat. Still, the handwritten menu is as tantalizing as ever, offering toothsome dishes like fiery chile rellenos and beer-can chicken. The Queen’s Hideaway is no longer a cozy discovery. Still, it may not be quite ready for its prime time debut.
