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.
