El Prado Closes in Rego Park

Jeff | Jan 11, 2004 05:12 PM

Another one bites the dust, folks! Last Monday (or thereabouts), El Prado, the Spanish-style restaurant that used to be known as Cafe Valois, closed. Though the El Prado name was of recent vintage, Cafe Valois had been in that location on Queens Blvd for many, many years. There are paper signs in the windows stating that an Indian restaurant is coming soon. Competition for Tandoor right across the Boulevard? Time will tell.

In other Rego Park news, Super Mexican has opened on Queens Blvd near 63rd Ave. This was the location speculated to be a Fresco Tortilla in previous threads. It is, in fact, a take-out joint. As such, I haven't wandered in there yet. I may be wrong but, I am NOT expecting much from this joint. You never know, though....
