Flattopps, a 90s-themed restaurant serving comfort food on Ditmars Boulevard, is moving to a new location in Astoria.
The restaurant, which serves creative burgers, hefty sandwiches and cocktails, closed its location at 33-06 Ditmars Boulevard last Thursday. The business was founded in 2016 by the owners of Queens Comfort, a trendy 30th Avenue restaurant.
The restaurant developed a reputation for its zany meal options, including fried chicken crusted with fortune cookies and a burger topped with a fried mac’n’cheese patty.
Flattopps has not yet announced the location of its new space, but said that it planned to move to Astoria.
The restaurant announced its plans in a June 29 Instagram post.
“After two years on Ditmars Boulevard, Flattopps will be be evolving and moving to a new home in Astoria,” Flattopps wrote. “We want to thank everyone for their support— your generosity, love, and good energy is the engine that keeps our weird little enterprise going. We are grateful that the first part of our ride found us on the Boulevard and we look forward to the future.”
Restaurant owner Donnie D’Alessio also moved his other restaurant, Queens Comfort, to a new location this year. The eatery relocated from a space at 36-18 30th Ave. to a larger location at 36-18 30th Ave. this winter.
D’Alessio could not be reached for comment.
