The Summer Shift

The Summer Shift

Amy Morris and Anna Polonsky of The MP Shift, working with David Selig, have transformed the former Rockaway Taco (95-19 Rockaway Beach Boulevard) into the peninsula’s newest culinary destination. The Summer Shift will feature a rotating line-up of chefs preparing Latin-inspired bites for hungry beachgoers. This is the schedule for the remainder of the summer:

June 18 to July 14:
Fernando Aciar from O Cafe

July 16 to August 11:
Camille Becerra from Navy

August 13 to August 30:
Felipe Donnelly and Carolina Santos-Neves from Comodo

September 1 to September 7:
Gerardo Gonzales and Nicholas Morgenstern from El Rey and Morgenstern’s Finest Ice Cream

The adjoining space is now home to La Newyorkina, serving paletas, a Mexican-inspired popsicle.

Across the street, work continues on The Palms, which is being billed as “an exotic town square with palm trees” that will include merchants, a coffee house and an art gallery.
