It’s Flickering Because of COVID-19, But New York’s Red Flame Still On

Untold thousands of restaurants and eateries have already closed in the United States because of the COVID-19 pandemic, affecting especially those that didn't have outdoor seating during the summer or enough pick-up and delivery to keep them going. 

Among those struggling are a number of well-known Greek diners in New York City, which many feel in the winter will be a frozen ghost town unless the Coronavirus starts to abate and people risk coming into Manhattan and other boroughs. 

Two of those at risk, said The New York Post, are the Westside Restaurant at 2020 Broadway at 69th Street and the Red Flame Diner at 67 West 44th Street with the streets of New York showing shocking signs of empty restaurants, some abandoned with the silverware still on the table. 

“Both of these Greek American-family-managed places soldier on with indoor and outdoor seating. The Westside’s landlord lists it as available, though the owner denies he’s closing. The Red Flame lost much of its clientele to the Midtown “ghost town.” Show them love – and cash,” wrote the paper's Steve Cuozzo, who knows his Greek diners.
