Covid19 has permanently shut many doors on our beloved neighborhood restaurants, and sadly Kurry Qulture is now amongst them. The restaurant who opened its doors in 2015, was well known for their elevated take on standard Indian dishes and their unique seasonal menus.
A well loved fine dining establishment in the area, Kurry Qulture has received countless rave reviews, and has even been featured in Forbes, The Michelin Guide, Best of the Borough, ABC 7, and mentioned in the Diners Choice Awards. However the restaurant relied heavily on indoor dining, and the restrictions and economic climate due to COVID19 made business unsustainable. Even the revenue made while offering take-out during earlier stages of the pandemic was not enough to maintain expenses.
Owner Sonny Soloman left this statement on the restaurant’s website and throughout their socials.
Goodbye and Thank You!
It is with both sadness and gratitude we share with you all that Kurry Qulture has closed permanently. COVID-19, and the subsequent restrictions placed on fine dining restaurants like Kurry Qulture, made it impossible to keep the business viable while maintaining our high standard of food quality and service. We want to thank all of our loyal customers and fans from Astoria and beyond. It was an honor and a pleasure to serve you over the years. We couldn’t have achieved so many milestones without the support of all of you and we deeply thank you. New Yorkers are strong and we will get through these challenging times together. To health and happiness, we bid you a very heartfelt farewell.
Kurry Qulture will definitely be missed.
