Western Queens Gazette 20th Anniversary

Dear Tony,

The Queens GazetteThank you for a wonderful party. Riccardo’s was the perfect place to celebrate 20 years of Astoria and Queens Gazette history. You are a phenomenal host and a gracious, generous person. I cannot compliment you enough on the high quality, superior food that was presented. Guest after guest commented on how delicious the cuisine was. As I said in my opening remarks, Riccardo’s, for many of us, is our home away from home. I am proud to have had the Gazette’s 20th anniversary party at Riccardo’s By The Bridge.

Honorable Mention: Western Queens Gazette Publisher Says “Thank You” (Reprinted from the Western Queens Gazette)

Last night the Gazette passed a historic milestone. Staffers and friends of the paper gathered at Riccardo’s by the Bridge in Astoria to celebrate the paper’s 20th year of publication and its 13th under the leadership of owner, publisher and editor in chief, Tony Barsamian.

“There are so many people who made this day possible I don’t think I can ever thank them all” Barsamian said. “Tony Corbisiero, who owns Riccardo’s, made this wonderful party happen through his generous hospitality. This is just the latest example of how much he does to accommodate all the groups who meet here.”
