A restaurant that has been a staple of Hauppauge's food scene closed two weeks ago after being in business more than 40 years.
The family that owned Jade Garden for the past 20 years, though, still owns the nearby Chinese take-out restaurant Hau Po, which has been around for 42 years. The manager of Hau Po, who gave her name as Cindy, said takeout customers can still get many of their favorite Jade Garden recipes at Hau Po.
Cindy attributed Jade Garden's closing to a leasing problem with the landlord of the shopping center. The landlord could not be reached for comment on Thursday.
