WLA got a shout out in today's Daily News article about noise complaints around the new BBQ joint, The Strand. What do you think, WLA, is the flavor worth the burden?
The Strand (25-21 Broadway Astoria, NY 11106)

If you lived in back of Monte you would feel very different. Too much loud noise is noise, wherever it is.
Monte, the alleged restaurant across street has been getting complaints for long time, nothing from Vallone. I wonder what made him respond to Strand? Was it the reporter who did story calling him for a comment? Monte goes full blast till early in morning, gets away with it.
I live a block east of it so I walk past it constantly and it doesn't bother me, it doesn't seem louder than say Monte across the street when they have a crowd. Of course the people living in earshot would have a different view, and should probably be compensated in some way - the place is certainly doing business like gangbusters so far, and at the cost of these folks' privacy to an extent.
However, who knows what it'll be like once the weather turns warm, they have a lot of outdoor seating...I could see it being awful. A shame too because their short rib is killer and at a good price...
Ran...also you should stop calling it a BBQ joint....its a smokehouse - very different than BBQ - even in the daily news article the executive chef said so!
