Island Has Closed - But Not For Good

I discovered some trouble in paradise on my way to Spa Hydra. As I passed the infamous Euro hangout, Island, I noticed a letter taped on its door. Immediately, I became intrigued. Can something be wrong? Lo and behold there was something very wrong--the letter said that due to a conflict with the landlords, Island is now closed. I can't say that I'm sorry to hear it. While the atmosphere was incredible, the clientele and the food was anything but. Island claims that it will reopen soon and encourages patrons to keep their hopes up but I'm not convinced. I know...I completely biased but I can't root for a place that serves overpriced drinks and less than mediocre tasting food. Que sera, sera.

Island - 35-15 36th St. Astoria, NY 11102
N/W Train to 36th Avenue or R Train to Steinway
