Sad Ending Continues for Brooklyn’s Closed Carroll Gardens Classic Diner

It's been a few months since the Carroll Gardens Classic Diner – really in the Brooklyn neighborhood of Boerum Hill – had to shut down during the COVID-19 pandemic, but fans miss it and shake their heads at seeing repossession notices for waffle irons and other supplies on the eatery’s chain-locked doors. 

Herbert Wiener, who owns the building in which the restaurant is located, told Brooklyn Paper that, “they weren’t able to make a go of it, with the virus and everything, they shut down.” 

It was owned by Spero Katehis who the site said couldn't be reached for comment and noted that its many former regular customers can't believe it's gone. 

Stefano DiMaggio, who runs Caruso’s pizza joint across the street said. “there was no space to put seating outside …They only did delivery and pick up,” which couldn't sustain the kind of beloved greasy spoon offering Greek favorites and pancakes. 

Sandy Balboza, head of the Atlantic Avenue Betterment Association misses it. “I would get an omelette, matzo ball soup, Greek salad with two hard boiled eggs and no anchovies … It’s not good (it's gone,) diners are important.” 


NEW YORK – The investigation continues as the family of Jennifer Farber Dulos released a statement marking three years since the mother of five disappeared after dropping the kids off at school in New Canaan, CT, on May 24, 2019, NBC4 New York reported.
