The first sign of change at 477 Old Country Rd. has been unfurled: a banner announcing Trodos, a Mediterranean-style restaurant.

Work is under way to update the former site of Fortune Asian Bistro, which had a brief run at the location, opposite the shuttered Fortunoff store. So far, the only word is that the eatery is opening soon.

Along a strip that has seen more than enough closings, it's welcome news. Details to follow.

Trodos, 477 Old Country Rd., Westbury; 516-222-8000.
