Pacific Moon Asian Fusion in the North Gate Shopping Center in Commack has closed, a short run for a restaurant that opened in February.
An employee at Pacific Moon’s sibling, Kobe Hibachi in Jericho — still open — confirmed the closing and that Pacific Moon would not reopen in a different location. Kobe has been open since 2014.
Newsday critic Peter M. Gianotti gave Pacific Moon two stars in July, declaring, “Pacific Moon rises to brighten a dim, strip-mall spot.” It served a variety of Thai, Chinese and Japanese dishes.
The lively Asian-fusion restaurant succeeded Perfecto Mundo, a stellar Latin-fusion dining room. It had been there for four years.
RM Bistro will open in the Pacific Moon space later this month, an Indian restaurant from different owners.
Pacific Moon had been at 1171 Jericho Tpke., Commack
