Michael’s Restaurant re-opens after February fire shut it down

Michael's Restaurant

April 3, 2015 By Michael Florio

An Astoria restaurant will reopen tomorrow after being forced to close following a fire in an upstairs apartment.

Michael’s Restaurant, located at 33-17 Broadway, closed on Feb. 15 after a fire tore through an upstairs apartment.  The owner had to make repairs to the ceiling and floor.

Despite the six week closure, the restaurant–particularly the menu—will largely remain unchanged.

A sign went up late this week announcing the re-opening.

The restaurant has a loyal customer base, with 145 Yelp reviews averaging 3 1/2 stars. Some reviewers rave about the French fries, onion rings, Greek pizza, seafood platters and portion sizes.

The owner was not available to comment about the re-opening.

3 men sought for armed robbery in East Elmhurst home invasion near LaGuardia Airport: NYPD

The NYPD is looking for three men who allegedly robbed an East Elmhurst man of tens of thousands of dollars during a home invasion early Monday morning.

Police from the 115th Precinct in Jackson Heights responded to a 911 call of an armed robbery at a townhouse located at 108-09 Ditmars Blvd. near 29th Avenue just south of LaGuardia Airport.
The victim had pulled up in front of his home just before 2 a.m. when he was approached by three suspects. One of them pulled out a firearm and forced him inside the townhouse where they stole around $30,000 in cash and a safe that contained an unspecified amount of jewelry, before exiting and driving off in a silver four-door SUV, police said.
