From Douglaston Patch:
The site of a former Douglaston diner is being renovated and transformed into an Asian buffet and sushi restaurant, Community Board 11's district manager said.
The P&B's Seville diner site, located at 231-10 Northern Blvd. in Douglaston, opened in the mid-1970s and was a popular neighborhood eatery until it closed a few years ago.
The city's Board of Standards and Appeals granted a variance to Ching Kuo Chiang, the property's owner, in August that allowed him to renovate the diner's building.
A new buffet and sushi restaurant known as Mizumi is being constructed at the site, but the opening date is yet to be announced, Community Board 11 District Manager Susan Seinfeld said.
