Longtime Bayside eatery First Edition closes

Bayside bar and restaurant First Edition closed this week after 61 years on Bell Boulevard due to a loss in business, according to a sign posted in the eatery’s window.

The restaurant, located at 41-08 Bell Blvd. near the Long Island Rail Road station, thanked its loyal customers and posted a sign in the window that read “after serving the Bayside community for the past 61 years, First Edition has been forced to close our doors due to declining business brought on by the economic conditions of the past year.”

First Edition was primarily a sports bar, but it also served food, including wraps, sandwiches, pasta and gourmet pizzas.
