New Restaurant, Twisted Fork Brunch Company, Opening at Former Mediterranean Diner Space in Bellmore

When Mediterranean Diner in Bellmore shut its doors earlier this year, many lamented the closing of another traditional Long Island diner. The owners told Newsday that they fell victim to the one-two punch of the pandemic and skyrocketing food costs. They also said that a new concept would be coming to the spot.

It looks like they made good on that promise.

Brothers Pete and Chronis Tsempelis spent time concentrating on their other venture, Avenue Social Kitchen & Cocktails, which is across the street from Mediterranean Diner on Bedford Avenue. Just the other day, the Avenue Social Kitchen & Cocktails Facebook page announced that Twisted Fork Brunch Company would be opening at the former Mediterranean Diner space sometime in January 2024.
