Food is the great unifier. It’s a friend and a support to all, in times of celebration and hardship or simply on a whim and out of necessity. A good, hearty meal can bring together families, strangers and even turn someone’s entire day around for the better and bring them joy. And the better the food, the happier you are. The happier you become, the more you look to share with others and be happy all over again. What a beautiful cycle!

After opening it’s doors to the public back in early spring, word began to spread fast about the delicious food at “5 Brothers Kitchen & Cafe,” namely their popular “Zinger Burger” (a fried fillet of chicken with lettuce, onions, tomatoes and cheese) and crispy chicken tenders meal with French fries and barbecue sauce.

Customers also have a variety of tasty desserts and treats to choose from like “Baklava” and cupcakes freshly-made from scratch in store for the sweet-tooths.

It was almost as though the community didn’t know how much it needed a dine-in restaurant like this one. Which means a lot considering Elmont’s attachment to the former Alden Manor Branch Library that once operated here. Since it’s open though “5 Brothers” has certainly distinguished itself while embracing the Elmont community as a whole. In turn, we here at The Excelsior would like to join many others as we welcome a new community partner.
