B&H Dairy Hopes to Reopen by Wednesday of this Week

B&H Dairy has been closed since the explosion that rocked Second Avenue eleven days ago. Con Edison shut the gas lines to the store for fear of a possible leak. Meanwhile, owner Fawzy Abdelwahad has been sorting out the particulars. In real terms, that’s lots of business lost, and one establishment that will certainly need community support to stay afloat.

Now, a bit of good news.

Ownership announced on its Facebook page over the weekend that B&H Dairy should reopen sometime this week, hopefully by Wednesday. Apparently, the Department of Health inspected the iconic 73-year-old luncheonette and gave the A-OK. Now they’re just waiting for Con Edison to turn the gas back on. Abdelwahad says Con Edison is “changing the [gas] pipe” so that the diner can resume service.

Both ownership and customers alike are hungry for the return.
