The U.S. Open—New York’s exhilarating summer sports event—is one of the most exciting things to do in Queens. But this year, things are going to be much different.

While the games will go on, the US Tennis Association said that fans will not be allowed in.

"The decision to hold the 2020 US Open without fans was not an easy one, but ultimately it was the correct one," said Stacey Allaster, the chief executive, of Professional Tennis at USTA and US Open Tournament Director. "To mitigate risk, we must minimize numbers on-site. Though we will not have fans on our site, we will engage with tennis fans around the world in new and exciting ways with the help of our global broadcast partners, and all our US Open sponsors."

To that end, the Billie Jean King Tennis Center is holding both the 2020 US Open and 2020 Western & Southern Open will be held at Flushing's NTC. By doing this, it allows the USTA to keep the events in one centralized location, mitigating risk and allowing for one cohesive safety plan but it'll also amp up excitement for the summer's biggest tennis events.

 

When is the U.S. Open?

The U.S. Open takes place in Flushing Meadows–Corona Park in Queens at the end of the summer from from August 31 to September 13.

U.S. Open food dishes that you have to eat this year

Spectating at the U.S. Open is hard work. Between slathering on the SPF and staying hydrated with one of those ubiquitous Grey Goose Honey Deuce cocktails (that's after you've trekked out to Queens), we’re always sampling the new dishes at the most lucrative professional tennis tournament in the world. Don’t get us wrong, we love watching the likes of Serena Williams and Roger Federer hitting aces and trading forehands with their opponents. But while some of the best restaurants in Flushing are just one 7 train stop away, there’s some great food to be eaten at the Open. Here are this year’s new dishes that we’ll be devouring over the fortnight. Dumplings from Dumpling Galaxy  All photography: Darren Carroll/USTA It’s great to see a popular Flushing restaurant being featured at one of New York’s largest sporting events. Helen You’s lamb and chicken dumplings are perfect bite-size snacks to enjoy in between matches. Quinoa wrap from FieldTrip by JJ Johnson A quinoa wrap sounds like something you might find on a Keto-friendly menu. But the talented chef JJ Johnson fills a roti-like wrap with a delicious mix of mushrooms, corn, avocado, cilantro, creamy mozzarella and yucca puffs. Sushi from Aces featuring Morimoto Ordering sushi at a sports venue may seem risky, but Morimoto has been serving up fresh fish for years at the U.S. Open. The Iron Chef knows his way around fresh seafood, and it’s a great break from the heavier food available on the grounds. Rainbow chi

The best restaurants in Flushing, Queens

When we’re seeking some of the best Chinese restaurants in New York, Flushing is always on our list of places to visit. This culinary mecca in Queens’ Chinatown is why we board the 7 train to fix our cravings for dumplings, hand-pulled noodles, bubble tea and Asian desserts. While the nearby Queens Night Market is great, we love Flushing for its endless options around the clock (look for at least an eatery or two to make our best dishes and drinks list this year).
