    Former congressman Anthony Weiner wants to get back into the community -- by opening a restaurant in Queens.

    The eatery, which Weiner wants to open in the Rockaways, will be named The Rockaway Restoration Kitchen and will offer locally sourced food.

    It will provide jobs to residents of the neighborhood, part of his former congressional district that is still recovering from Sandy.

    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.
