Famous Pita, Falafel and More, Coney Island Ave Closed: Burger Pizza to replace

jonkyo | Jan 27, 201506:45 AM    

What an apostasy.

Famous Pita 967 Coney Island Avenue, Brooklyn, NY is CLOSED.

The space will be a generic burger and pizza joint.

The state should subsidize such venues, so that people are not eating frozen bagged processed foods, prepared out of a freezer.

Famous was amazing. I had only taken a meal there once, with high prospects of a return. Those prospects have been crushed.

In all honesty, any number of reasons may have resulted in the closing. Luckily, good food is not too far from that corner.

Just last evening I had a plate of extreme delicousness just across the street, while a 1980s Bollywood movie entertained.

Chatkhara has the best Kofta with egg, I have ingested ever in the greater NYC area.

They, the staff at Chatkhara, make their own thick green hot sauce that contains fresh mint, all ground and mushed with other ingredients. Amazing.

I will still miss Famous.
