Store closings ( La Sultana Restaurant )

I am sorry to have to report the closing of La Sultana Restaurant on the corner of 41st street and 8th Avenue. It fell victim to the changing demographics of the neighborhood and a greedy landlord who demanded double the rent. What usually happens when a building changes hands and the new owner sees a bonanza rather than a long term opportunity. The food was great but the neighborhood is changing as more Chinese appear at this end of 8th Avenue and have a taste for a different cuisine. Not to worry though. It will soonn open again at a new location in a more Spanish part of the neighborhood. I will keep you posted..
