Neptune Diner: Not Closing

A rumor is floating around (again) that the great Neptune Diner of Astoria is closing. This photo of a supposed shutter note showed up on Twitter with an Astoria hashtag:



But a call to the diner confirmed they are not closing. And a Reddit reader says the sign is a hoax.

UPDATE: A Facebook commenter say, "It's the Neptune Diner in Newburgh, NY that's closing, and that shutter note is from their menu. I know this because I ate there a few days ago. It's a shame... I really liked that place."



The same rumor went floating around a year ago. Is this an annual, end-of-year occurrence? Anyway. The woman who answered the phone at Neptune tells me the menu for their Christmas dinner is wonderful.

Some good news at last. Just had a pastrami sandwich there.

Unfortunately, it has come to pass and will be closing when the lease ends in August 2019 per the Queens Gazette. The site is for sale. https://www.facebook.com/queens.gazette/posts/1217935801671456

I had no idea! Had some great times at the Neptune and the food and service was always great...even for obnoxious teens...
