  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.

          1. re: Scott_R

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

            1. re: Scott_R

              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

                  1. re: Gastronomos

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

                    1. re: Scott_R

                      oh yeah! LOL

        2. They're open...
