The Neptune Restaurant's last day in business was on Sunday.
The building that houses the Polish-American diner at 194 First Ave. between 11th Street and 12th Street was sold. According to one source, the asking rent doubled for the space, which includes a backyard garden.

While the Neptune opened in 2001, the space has been home to a Polish-American diner, such as KK, for many years.
