Corner Bistro, located on the corner of Vernon Boulevard and 47th Road, has permanently closed.

The owners, who operated three establishments by that name across New York City, have announced that two—including the Long Island City location- have shut down for good.

“We are sad to say because of Coronavirus pressures Corner Bistro LIC at Vernon Boulevard and Corner Bistro Hell’s Kitchen 600 11 Ave, Manhattan are closed permanently,” the owners posted on their website. “Please visit our location in the village (311 West 4th Street) to support us…”

Corner Bistro opened in Long Island City in 2012, taking over a space that was home to the restaurant Cassino, which had been owned and operated by the late Sal Anzalone for decades.

Anzalone’s family still owns the property–and 47th Road is co-named after Sal Anzalone.

The Corner Bistro on Vernon Boulevard was known for its booths and burgers.

The bistro burger was a favorite, which included a half-pound of beef piled with bacon and melted American cheese. The venue also had more than a dozen beers on tap.
