Description:

This was the sister location of the Lee's Hawaiian Islander that is located and still operational in Lyndhurst, New Jersey. The Clifton restaurant closed due to a fire in 2003.

I just got this oversized matchbook from the Clifton location.

An image from the website announcing a temporary closure due to the fire.

A postcard I posted a while back showing the Clifton (left) and Lyndhurst (right) buildings.

I was surprised that I could not find any photos of the Clifton's restaurant on the web. Started this locating thread to see if some may show up.

Here is a TC thread that discusses the fire.

Now what is also interesting is that there was a third location opened by the Lee's called Lee's Imperial. It was located in Staten Island. I have another oversized matchbook from this location as well.
