Lundy’s Goes Under for the Last Time: Elegy for a Seafood Palace
The great old-time Brooklyn restaurant Lundy’s is no more. The place closed up without any warning three weeks ago; now, the Bay News reported last week, Lundy’s is in chapter 7 bankruptcy, and what remains will be carved up to pay off creditors. This saddens us here at Grub Street. Lundy’s was one of the very last of the affordable seafood palaces that once catered to Brooklyn’s middle class.
