Houdini Kitchen Laboratory in Queens is no more

It appears the Houdini Kitchen Laboratory in Ridgwood, Queens, has closed permanently. According to Bushwick Daily, a new pizzeria called Pan will take its place. 

Houdini Kitchen Laboratory opened in 2013 not far from the site of Houdini's grave. Having lunch their before or after a visit to the cemetery made for a nice day in Queens, which is what I did with fellow Houdini nuts Colleen Bak, Fred Pittella, and David Jaher during my visit in 2017.

I'm sad to see it go. However, the second Houdini Pizza Laboratory in still going strong in Fanwood, New Jersey.

  1. It was a neat place...sad to hear it’s gone now...and at the same time very happy that we all got to go when we did.
