Kabab Cafe Finally Re-opening!

Via JIA friend Zora on Chowhound:

Straight from the horse's mouth: the long dry spell is over! Ali will be back in the kitchen [today]. (I think the super-auspicious date is a coincidence?)

He has done some major revamping of his kitchen, due to perpetual hassle from the fire-code people, so expect some new stuff on the menu.

This is great news! I've had some terrific meals there and look forward to returning for more. Kabob Cafe is on Steinway near exotic 25th Avenue.

Hi Emma -
We've got Steinway & 25th Av in the last line of the posting.

I wrote the original post. "Steinway near 25th Avenue" is accurate and enough, I think. Astoria is actually somewhat simple in its street layout, so with a locator of "Street near Avenue", it's clear. What wouldn't be clear is if "Avenue" or "Street" or "Road" or whatever is left off. Then it gets confusing.

Exotic 25th Avenue. Oh, you people slay me.

"Exotic" only because it's kind of hidden! And do you notice that it exists as kind of a ghost between Astoria Blvd and 28th Ave, above Steinway? Starting at 28th Ave, the addresses start at 24-. Halfway (or so), the first numbers of the addresses start with.... 25-!!!
