The owners of Queens Kickshaw in Astoria last August announced they would change their restaurant’s concept to a vegetarian Chinese eatery.
In a Facebook post, the owners said they were “honored to have met so many of you, fostered lasting connections, and collaborated with local purveyors and partners.”
But due to “growing business challenges” Lim and Sandler decided to remodel the restaurant and change the food and drink menu.
But just two months after Ha’s Chinese opened on Dec. 5, it seems owners Jennifer Lim and Ben Sandler have shuttered the doors at 40-17 Broadway. A message on the restaurant’s website read that the site closed on Feb. 12, Eater first reported.
In an Instagram post on the restaurant’s account on the same day, several people asked why the restaurant had closed.
Ha’s Chinese offered Sichuan Chinese dishes and menu items included dumplings, scallion pancakes, rice and noodle dishes and a variety of veggie and tofu options. QNS reached out to the owners for more information.
