Sentosa-Gone but never to be forgotten?

Ann | Oct 19, 2003 10:33 PM

A few months ago some Malaysian acquaintances told us that Sentosa was closing down its Allen Street location
We hadn't been to Sentosa for a few months- but they had been telling us for some time that business was really down (like many other Chinatown restaurants, particularly since 9/11).
Sure enough, last night we went by and the place was shuttered. Although we were told they were moving to Flushing, there was no notice about future locations anywhere to be seen.
I've probably eaten in Sentosa dozens of times over the past 3 1/2 years and counted Sentosa as one of my very favorite New York places, (at any price). The food was always superb, prepared with great skill.I always used to say that if I were having my last two meals on earth the first would be at Cote Basque, the second at Sentosa.
Does anyone know if they are relocating to Flushing - or anywhere else or if they are closed for good.
