Riccardo’s by the Bridge to close down
Riccardo’s by the Bridge, a catering facility that has served Astoria for 69 years, is closing its doors for good.
In a message posted on the website, the company shared that the decision had to do with the COVID-19 pandemic.
Here’s a snippet of that message:
This decision has been extremely difficult to make, and is solely due to the various impacts of the COVID pandemic; if it were up to us we would cater your special events forever. But after reviewing all options and weighing all known factors, there is simply no realistic path forward given all of the unknowns: when we might reopen and, even then, the anticipated City, State and Federal restrictions that will most definitely be placed on such a reopening.
If you have an event booked and a deposit on file, they will be refunded over the next 90 days.
Look for communication by email or by phone from Riccardo’s if you’re looking for a refund.
