QUEENS — Two new businesses have recently opened in Forest Hills, including a spa on Austin Street that provides a variety of massage services, including for couples.
The other business, a Buffalo Wild Wings, which opened Monday on 71st Street, had already served about 400 people by early afternoon, according to the restaurant.
Wonderland Spa at 70-23 Austin Street has a room for couples where two people can get treatment at the same time. “People ask for it so we wanted to give them that option,” said Elaine Liu, the owner of the spa.
A half hour of body massage at Wonderland Spa costs $25 (per person).
The spa also offers foot massage ($40 for 60 minutes), head massage ($50), and Thai massage which includes stretching ($60 for 60 minutes).
Wonderland Spa also provides ear candling, an alternative medicine practice aiming to improve well-being by lighting one end of a hollow candle and placing the other end in the ear, said Liu. It costs $50.
Hot stones and aroma oils can be added to each service for additional $10.
Buffalo Wild Wings also opened its new location in Forest Hills on Monday.
In the first three hours after launching of the new restaurant, Buffalo Wild Wings had served around 400 people in its sit-down and take-out areas, according to Jim Talalaj, a general manager.
“Our wings are obviously the most popular item and the most popular sauce is honey barbecue,” he said. “People are really excited.”
The new location, which opened at the former Forest Hills Theatre at 107-16 71st Ave., measures around 10,000 square feet, which is about 40 percent larger than a typical Buffalo Wild Wings restaurant, according to Four M Capital, LLC, the group that launched the restaurant.
It also features 87 HD TVs and two monster projection screens (12 and 14 foot).
