Astoria: It may not make waves outside the enclave of restaurants and residents in Astoria, but there's some sad news for the neighborhood coming over the tipline. Top Tomato, known in Astoria as the best source for fruits and vegetables, has closed. A tipster reports:
It was up for 20 years providing fresh produce 24/7 even through the blackout of 2006. I have a sneaky suspicion that the Greek mafia next door, Taverna Kyclades, bought out the space to expand their restaurant. They always have a wait time of 45 minutes or more.On the bright side: less wait times at Taverna Kyclades!
