Diwan to reopen in Port Washington

LloydG | Feb 10, 2009 07:05 AM

I was in Diwan in Hicksville the other night. I've always wondered whether this was the same establishment as the old Diwan in Port Washington, which closed years ago and has been replaced by a succession of failed restaurants (most recently Cinnamon Club). My wife and I were talking about Port Washington in general, and the waiter overheard us and mentioned that they were reopening in the same space (the old house on Shore Road (?) next to the pond. Evidently, they own the space and have rented it out over the years but decided to give it another try.

When we used to eat there, it was the best Indian around. What's interesting (and makes me very happy) is that there are now so many good Indian restaurants in Hicksville that this will be one of many. However, this will be the only good one in or near Port Washington, so I'm quite excited.
