Shana Choi of Bon Café et Restaurant
Last week, we had the pleasure to meet up with Shana Choi and Francine Kim of Bon Café et Restaurant, the latest small business to open in Sunnyside, Queens. Shana, the owner of the café and coffee shop, wanted to focus on Korean and American dishes that are healthy and fun, resulting in the creation of delicious signatures like Bon Café Green Salad and the Gochujang Pasta. Shana and her team also serves up an extensive coffee and beverages menu.
