Now serving Portuguese fare in Island Park is Flamingo Tapas Bar & Grill Cafe. The new restaurant is owned by married couple Maria and Antonio Almeida, who opened Antonio’s in Oceanside before selling it some seven years ago.

According to co-owner Maria Almeida, Flamingo's current digs formerly housed a topless bar. “The pole is gone now,” she quipped.
