Originally opened in 1965, Bel Aire Diner has maintained all of the charm and nostalgia that first made it popular for nearly 50 years. In 1996, the Dellaportas family has been running the diner and serving fresh, tasty food to their friends and neighbors in Astoria. Since then, Bel Aire has become a neighborhood staple, and we have even been voted Best Diner by the Daily News twice. We are proud of the long history Bel Aire Diner has had with the community, and we looking forward to serving you for many more years to come.
