Kansas City Smokehouse Closes Its Doors

Yet another business bites the dust at this revolving East Meadow location.

It's been almost five months since at 2367 Hempstead Turnpike, but officials from Singh Hospitality Group have confirmed that the business has closed.

After making an initial inquiry via Singh Hospitality Group's website, East Meadow resident Paul Daniel received the following response and forwarded it to Patch.

We regret to inform you that we have temporarily closed this location. We do have other excellent restaurants for you to visit. Please visit our website at www.singhhospitalitygroup.com for a list of our other locations. Any coupons or gift certificates will gladly be honored at any of our locations.We will inform you when we reopen that location. Thank you for your patronage.

"Either that place is cursed, or Singh Hospitality is just using it as a testing ground, which is bad for [East Meadow]," East Meadow resident Michele Catalano told Patch on Twitter.

Calls made to Singh Hospitality Group for comment were not immediately returned.

This is far from the first business to fail at this location, and this leads to today's Patch question of the day.

As well as most, I am still waiting for Sonics next move. I am thinking positive..... You ain't seen nothing yet. A new business is preparing to open in East Meadow Plaza. If it is what I think it is it may not be a pretty sight. There are loopholes in the law when it comes to gambling and gaming establishments The name of the place will be "SWEEPSTAKES INTERNET CAFE"... If it is what I think it will be it may be turning heads. Since I am not certain exactly what it will be I will say I have a close eye on the situation. We will wait and see if it is a regular come on in and use the internet and have some coffee or "PAY TO PLAY" type of atmosphere. Time will tell....

I think Singh uses that location as a test market. They want to see what does well so they can maybe open that type of location elsewhere. My bet is the next restaurant will be Mexican. They've tried almost everything else. It's a shame, because I thought the KC Smokehouse was a decent restaurant.

Wow! I drove past this place about a million times. Lol! I have to stop by and try there food now. But, I still would love to see a really nice Sushi Lounge. You know one with beautiful Japanese Art Deco Decor, nice screen TV's, a beautiful bar with a gorgeous fish tank behind it, a separate area to possibly dance with a nice lounge area that has couches with small tables to just eat, talk, drink and laugh. Like Nisen Sushi in Woodbury.

Singh did not own Arthur Avenue which was by far the greatest restaurant and was sold because the family owned business suffered some loses, they also owned the old Wickers. This place was decent but the service was not good. The place was emply every time I went but the food was pretty good. It would be great to see a place similar to Arthur avenue come back, everything was made from scratch and there was a real home style environment. Sonic would be prtty awesome though.

Try Sacramone's across the street from where Arthur Avenue used to be. If you liked AA you will definitely enjoy Sacramone's.
