The subject line says it all—is Ditmars disco burger joint for sale? The reason we ask is because of this link from a WHA tipster about 33-06 Ditmars, description below:

“Location Location Location. Incredible opportunity to open your own restaurant on one of the busiest avenues in Astoria. This well established Turn Key Operation Currently Seats approx 30. With a full bar Large Kitchen Enormous Basement with storage and prep Area. This is a Restaurant Asset sale. Asking $249,000.00 (Key Money).”

If you’re curious about what a “restaurant asset sale” is, check this link. It sounds like it has a lot to do with issues of profit. We’ve reached out via email and text to Queens Comfort’s Donnie D’Alessio and Flattopps’s Benham Jones to get more information but have not heard back. We’ll pass on any info we have when we get it.

Now—what do you think? Did you realize the restaurant might be at risk like this? Is this location just cursed? Will you miss Flattopps? Leave us a comment with your thoughts.
