It’s really hard to keep track of what’s going on 2255 Emmons Avenue. In two years it has been home to three Turkish restaurants – and soon it’ll have a fourth. Pera Cafe Lounge will soon open at the location, following the short-lived Deniz Restaurant (so short-lived that we’re not sure if they were ever…

Signs went up over the weekend advertising Aladdin, a new restaurant at 1788 Sheepshead Bay Road that replaces Garden Bay Cafe. Garden Bay closed down in September, shortly after an electrical fire ravaged the building. Thanks to our friends at Arbuz for the tip.

Notice anything weird about this photo of Marmaris, at 3081 Emmons Avenue, taken on Wednesday afternoon? No? Let’s look at one of the other doors. Hmm. Another tree in front a door. Very strange.

It appears Halikarnas, the Turkish seafood restaurant at 3075 Emmons Avenue, has gone out of business. The property owner told reader Arthur Borko that it shut down about a month ago, saying not enough people were coming by. Which sounds about right, since it took us a month to find out. About that property owner:…

We live here, so we know all about Sheepshead Bay’s hidden culinary gems. There are the little bodegas with back-room burritos, the strangely decorated bars on quiet side streets with staggeringly cheap lunches, and the waterfront eateries that manage to go below radar. There are food carts that survive despite rhyme or reason (a hot…

Masal Cafe is one of two establishments in Lundy’s to survive the building’s rebirth, and business appears to be good. It first expanded from a tiny cafe to a spacious restaurant several years ago (after the Lundy’s “mini-mall” idea flopped), and now they’re snatching up a second Emmons Avenue location.
