Well, it's the end of an era. What many believed to be the definitive Sicilian slice in this part of Queens seems to have shut its doors for good. After a first bite of just-down-the-block's-newish Pizza Classica's Sicilian or Grandma, we all knew Matese was on its way out...Frankly, I'm surprised it's hung around this long.

Sad, but just another case of Culinary Darwinism I suppose.
