Dee Dee's Luncheonette in Floral Park had a short run  — with a bit of glory toward the end. Now, it's shuttered.

The retro American eatery, which opened in 2013 on Tulip Avenue, had a menu makeover after chef and restaurant consultant Phil Iannuccilli came on board nearly a year later. It was Iannuccilli’s chili that snagged first prize for the eatery in a chili contest held at Belmont Park back in October.  And, under Iannucilli, the place was serving hot chocolate made with real chocolate ganache and from-scratch baked goods.  

What will go into the vacated site remains to be seen.
