Scobee Diner Closing
#1 Dec 8, 2010
Scobee was the best Diner around. Everything on hte Menu was good to great. I think their "small" Greek salad was famous for being anything but small!
I never will forget such Scobee creations as Veal cutlet ala Holstein. Really is a shame. It is irreplaceable

I liked the Scobee diner, but when I see an absolute IDIOT of a politician like State Sen. Avella say something like this, "Avella said he will work hard to enact legislation that will stop this from happening in the future. Unfortunately, it will come too late for Scobee customers, who expressed dismay over the closure." and is discussing rent control for COMMERCIAL leases I get scared.
IT IS NOT THE GOVERNMENT'S JOB TO INTERFERE! The owner of the property has an expectation that the Government will not interfere with their property, they bought it and THEY OWN IT!!! Stop overstepping your bounds Sen. Avela.
Yes, the property owner is greedy, but now he is going to pay the price and find out how difficulut it will be to rent that property in these hard times and will likely end up with an empty property for a long, long time or end up with a tenant paying far less than the Scobee diner.
That is how the free market works. How far is the Government going to take this? Takeover of companies is already occurring. I guess Sen. Avela is probably a big fan of Hugo Chavez since this is exactly what he is doing in Venezuela. Hey Senator, if you like that way of doing business so much, why not move to Cuba or Venezuela?

The only time I was ever at Scobee was during the 8/14/03 blackout. It was still light out and we were told the power was off.
After 20 mins, I drove home to prepare my house.
Of course, I blamed Scobee for causing the largest blackout in US history and I never went back.

A Greek diner in Queens created "Veal cutlet a la Holstein"?
That is also known as "Schnitzel a la Holstein", created in Berlin in the 1890s. Cutlet with a fried egg on top, with assorted extras such as anchovies, etc.
So, Ron, you'll be happy to know that they didn't create bagels or ham and eggs either.
They are easily replaceable.

I heard for someone that the Silver Moon Diner in Queens Village is good. I'll never forget Scobee!

Sorry, Roger. Been there and got shortchanged twice. The folks at the cash register can't count to ten and always make the mistakes in their favor.

I've been eating at Silver Moon and so far so good. We're regulars there now.
