Harry's Fish Place

It was a pleasant and well-attended restaurant on 108th Street Forest Hills (across the street from that Kosher Chinese place Cho-Sen), with tacky Greek and Long Island fishing decor and the best sauteed shrimps with linquini and Garlic.Well, they went bye bye after they lost most of their help and Harry started serving the dishes himself. Rumor was the rent went sky high.The food was always fresh and tasty. Think it hit me eventually that most of the clientelle were elderly, but that didn't matter. We knew the waiters and waitresses, the owners, the food... It's sad that they left, but it's difficult to find a non-chain restaurant as modest and comfortable with the fare they offered. You could relax there like a second home.

Guess I'm wondering what could try to take its place. The jernt that started in its place I hear is nowhere near the caliber.
