Yet another Sunnyside staple will be closing its doors.
Mama’s Empanadas, the small yet popular eatery known for its dozens of empanada varieties, will be closing its Greenpoint Avenue location at the end of June, according to Javier Garcia, who owns the Queens-based chain.
Garcia said running the 42-18 Greenpoint Ave. site, which opened almost 15 years ago, has become difficult in recent times. Rent, employee wages, and its relatively distant location from the train are all contributing factors to its closing, he said.
