The restaurant fire that burned out two other businesses and forced a county legislator to relocate has proven too much.
For months, Classy Coffee had indicated that it planned to reopen after the fire that broke out in April at XO Wine and Chocolate Bar. But has since cleared out and a for rent sign hangs in the window. On Facebook, the store said "Due to a never ending list of obstacles, we have decided not to re-open in Huntington. We are currently searching for new locations." The dancewear store, Instructor’s Choice, also has packed up.
A representative of Blackstone Properties, whose number is listed on the for-rent signs, declined to discuss the future of the property at Clinton Avenue and Gerard Street.
No one from Instructor’s Choice, which was established in 1980, or Classy Coffee, was available for comment.
The restaurant had been open about six weeks when the fire destroyed it and the other two businesses. The second-floor office of , then majority leader of the Suffolk County Legislature, relocated to Centerport.
