FWIW, it's reopening.

  1. Is this going to be like a second marriage? A triumph of hope over experience.

      It was a family dispute that closed it, not anything with the food or the business itself. A death in the family followed by a demand for a buyout from the surviving spouse, or so I'd heard.

        Similar story heard here.
        Was it sold?

            diner & restaurant & bar.
            ?I guess they're bringing NJ to the Island.
            I'll try to keep optimistic, but one thing is usually a safe bet and that is that these Big Box New Jersey style greek diner/restaurants rarely fail to disappoint.

          They weren't open when I drove by yesterday.

            ... and still not today. They have a "Hiring" sign out front, but the parking lot entrances are blocked off.

              Should we give them a call to see what their estimated time of opening might be?

              1. re: Gastronomos

                Gates into the parking lot have been removed.

                  When you said they'd be open for the holidays I assumed winter solstice not spring solstice. LOL

                    That was you who said they'd be open for the holidays, dude, your 19 November post. :)

              Tried it for dinner. I know. I'm a glutton for punishment. Crazy expensive for a diner. Crowded and hectic. Servers willing to help with ALL the mistakes. They should do well. People love this shit.

              Aunt Gladys video was from the old place. The new one is a different animal.

              1. re: Gastronomos

                Is that your Aunt Gladys, Gastro? I didn't take you for a peas and carrots kind of guy. ;-)

          1. Has anyone tried out the new diner?
