The owners of Queens Comfort, a well-known Astoria restaurant that opened in 2011, announced via Instagram over the weekend that they are closing their establishment for good on Oct. 11.

“We are truly heartbroken to announce that Queens Comfort will be closing—October 11th will be our last day,” according to the post.

“Thank you for so many incredible memories, you filled our dining room with love every day. You showed us the meaning of community.”

The restaurant first opened in Astoria in 2011 at 40-09 30th Ave. and gained a following for its innovative takes on comfort food, such as chicken and waffles breaded with cornflakes, and truffle mac and cheese.

The restaurant moved in February, 2018 to 36-18 30th Ave, which had once been the location of Sugar Freak.
