Back March of last year I posted two restaurant rumors: 1) Don Juans was coming to Long Beach, and 2) Peter Luger Steakhouse was coming to Island Park. Well, the Peter Luger rumor somehow turned into a running joke with a few of you as the second there is a vacancy it’s immediately mentioned as the rumored-replacement. The Don Juans rumor, on the other hand, disappeared into obscurity…..
Posted on the vacant store window over at 124 E. Park Avenue is a work permit which shows Don Juan as the owner. Also posted are sketches for a restaurant layout, but I couldn’t get a decent photo of that. Do you know what that means? Well, I hope you like beans, rice and margaritas!
Does SEABYTHECITY give you the news or what? So what if some of our stories are 10 months in the making.
Never been to Don Juans? I can’t speak for the Massapequa location, but I’ve been to the one on Old Country Road in Westbury, which has since closed down. The food is very similar to Pancho’s in Island Park: All of the meals basically taste the same and they slap on a pile of beans and rice on the side with whatever you order. Anyways, welcome to Long Beach Mr. Don Juan.
(Thanks again Susan!)
