Queens Comfort, a popular Astoria restaurant that has been around for seven years, announced on Jan. 21 that they would shutter their doors.

According to a post on their Instagram account, the restaurant at 40-09 30th Ave., will officially close on Feb. 4. The eatery serves elevated comfort food and a variety of sandwiches, burgers, brunch items and starters like atomic fire balls, disco tots and Capt’n Crunch chicken fingers.

“Dear friends, we have some bittersweet news we’d like to share,” the owners wrote on Instagram. “On February 4, 2018, Queens Comfort will be closing its doors at our current location, 40-09 30th Avenue. Although it will mark the end of an era, you have certainly not seen the last of us. Please stay tuned for more details, and come by and help us say farewell to the place during the next two weeks.”

They also thanked patrons for support and “amazing memories,” adding that “it’s been a true blessing” to operate the business for seven years.

The owner, Donnie D’Alessio, also opened a hip-hop-themed restaurant, Flattops, at 33-06 Ditmars Blvd. in July 2016 with menu items like the Gucci Mane Burger, named after the rapper who released multiple records during his two-year prison term.

In November, We Heart Astoria reported that a new business called Peanut Butter World would open at 36-13 30th Ave. But rumors are circulating that the site is actually a front for a new Queens Comfort location.

Owners for Queens Comfort could not be reached for comments as of press time.
