It certainly is a bitter sweet goodbye to a restaurant that was fast becoming an Astoria staple. Queens Comfort announced through social media that they will be closing their doors once and for all on February 4th.
The Instagram post read:
“We have some bittersweet news we’d like to share. On February 4, 2018, Queens Comfort will be closing its doors at our current location, 40-09 30th Avenue. Although it will mark the end of an era, you have certainly not seen the last of us. Please stay tuned for more details, and come by and help us say farewell to the place during the next two weeks.
Thanks for your support and for all the amazing memories we have from the last seven years. It’s been a true blessing.”
What was your favorite Queens Comfort meal?
The owner, Donnie D’Alessio, has been on and off in Astoria for a while. He opened Flattops, at 33-06 Ditmars Blvd. in July 2016. The hip hop themed restaurant with menu items like the Gucci Mane Burger has become popular over the past two years.
A rumor has been circulating that the new Peanut Butter World opening up at 36-13 30th Ave. is actually a front for a new Queens Comfort location, but has yet to be confirmed or denied.
