Due to the Corona Virus, we are reducing our menu to maintain the quality of freshness. Please refer to our website and Facebook page for featured specials in the coming weeks. As always, we are grateful, and thank you for your support.

Dear Friends, Neighbors, Patrons,

Since March 15th, when we first learned that restaurants in NYC would no longer allow dining inside, it has been an up-and-down roller coaster ride for us. We have had to let go the majority of our staff, reinvent our operation, deal with supply issues, and worry about the safety of all involved.

At the same time, we have listened to the barrage of bad news as we hear of friends deal with the symptoms of novel coronavirus. In consideration of the apex of this pandemic happening in NYC now, we have decided to take a brief break from serving the community. We plan on taking one to two weeks off to regroup and recharge. Our scheduled reopening date is Thursday, April, 30th. We hope you understand our need to restore our drained bodies and minds.

We are proud to have been a fixture of the Whitestone community for 81 years and plan to continue that tradition for years to come. Thank you for your past and future patronage.

God bless you all...stay safe and healthy.

Most Sincerely,

Bobby, Ray, Karen, and the Clinton Staff
