One of the perks of being Mayor is obviously ribbon-cuttings for new restaurants, like the one for Pollo Campero, which has one location in Corona, Queens, to be followed by another in Sunset Park, Brooklyn.

Not only we will all be treated to delicious fried chicken, but hundreds of jobs are being created for hard working New Yorkers." Hear, hear!
