  1. There was a fire awhile ago (months?) In the kitchen, I think It's suppose to reopen, no word on when. Sorry I don't have any more info, Newsday has mentioned it several times

      thanks, i was very curious because it always was so crowded

    2. They had labor problems. The word was that they were retaining the tips and not properly sharing them with the waiters. There was a picket line with strikers, and other people working as strikebreakers. The food and service deteriorated seriously and there was less customers. I liked them up until my last visit there. I feel bad that they are gone.
