Oriental Garden transplanted to Dyker Heights

At last night’s dinner-for-five eaten-by-three at Uncle Lou, in Manhattan’s Chinatown, we spoke briefly but fondly about Oriental Garden, which closed on Elizabeth St. in 2000. As of October 2021, the chef and staff were working at Flavor Restaurant in Brooklyn (7109 13th Ave., Dyker Heights), according to a post on Yelp. I confirmed the Oriental Garden connection in person over lunch this past January:
Since then, according to that same Yelper, the name and owners of the Brooklyn restaurant have changed, but what’s now Big 5 Seafood Restaurant reportedly retains the chef and staff of Oriental Garden.
