The Strand Smokehouse Is Open Again After DOH Shutter

Open again.

You'll recall that the Strand Smokehouse in Astoria was closed after owner Tommy Vasilis had what you might generously call a disagreement with the Health Department and the DOH suspended permits for the barbecue joint and two Bakeway bakeries that Vasilis also owns. Well, good news: The barbecue spot and one of the bakeries have reopened, and Vasilis tells DNAinfo that the second Bakeway location, on 30th Avenue, will do the same after he staffs up.
