Anthony Weiner aims to open NYC restaurant in Rockaways, Queens

Former congressman Anthony Weiner is aiming to open a restaurant.

Weiner wants to open an eatery in the Rockaways, a coastal Queens neighborhood.

The place will be named The Rockaway Restoration Kitchen and will offer locally-sourced food.

It will provide jobs to residents of the neighborhood which is still recovering from Superstorm Sandy in 2012.

Weiner is listed on the restaurant's Idealist.org job listing page and The Rockaway Times reports he's scouted locations.

Weiner resigned his seat in Congress in 2011 after admitting to sending explicit photos to women who were not his wife.

He ran for mayor last year and led the field before more sexting allegations sank his bid.

He has been working as a pundit and consultant.

The Rockaways were part of his former congressional district.
