Speaking of Coney Island, there’s news this morning that Tom’s Restaurant, the beloved diner in Prospect Heights, is negotiating a lease for space on the boardwalk. NY1 has details about the possible expansion, saying the restaurant is looking to open in the space that used to be home to ChaCha’s and Nathan’s. The deal should be hammered out by the end of the week, and the second Tom’s could open by April. NY1’s story notes that Tom’s has been in business on Washington Avenue since 1936, and its owner, Jimmy Kokotas, says he’s like to have the Coney location open year-round.
