El Ay Si, the popular restaurant located at 47-38 Vernon Blvd., is on the market yet again.
The restaurant, which had been bought last year by Alexandru Menglide and his business partner, is for sale following a disagreement between the two partners.
Menglide said they are selling the restaurant because they are not getting along—and that it is unrelated to the profitability of the business.
He did not discuss how much he wants for the restaurant or any details.
El Ay Si (phonetically LIC) was established by Xerxes Novoa at the end of 2009 and the restaurant is known for its chicken fried chicken, nachos and pulled pork tacos.
Novoa sold it last year claiming that it was very time consuming.
“You get very attached to them [restaurants]…and have to be around them all the time,” Novoa said.
