Coronavirus Woes Close Decades-Old Diner In Brooklyn

Mega Bites diner — which has sat near Vanderbilt Avenue for decades — announced on Christmas Eve that it would be closing indefinitely after holding out hope for the recently-passed federal relief package or a rent break.

“We hoped this next COVID 19 relief bill would have provided some MEANINGFUL NON LOAN assistance for restaurants and other small businesses but unfortunately it does not. We’ve also hoped that our landlord would have accepted a significant reduction in rent but he has not,” the restaurant wrote on its Facebook page.
