State tax officials shut down an East Main Street burrito joint Tuesday afternoon for failing to pay thousands of dollars in state sales taxes — but the restaurant’s owner told the News-Review he’s going to pay back the state Department of Taxation and Finance and that the eatery won’t be closed for long.

“I’m working with them now, and it’s going to be reopened definitely next week,” owner Ken Loo said.

The doors of Blue Agave Mexican Grill, which opened in 2012 and had, of late, only accepted cash payments, were locked Tuesday afternoon. Customers were greeted by multiple bright orange signs informing them that the property had been “seized for nonpayment of taxes and is now in the possession of New York State.”

According to the state tax warrant system, five tax liens have been filed against the restaurant since 2012, four of which are current — totaling $13,804. A New York State Tax Assessment spokesperson said that, in order for the restaurant to reopen, Mr. Loo will need to pay a total of $8,187 for nonpayments from 2013.

Mr. Loo — who also runs the sushi restaurant Haiku out of the same East Main Street building as Blue Agave as well as the Hy Ting Chinese restaurant on West Main Street — said he had to focus his attention on the Birchwood restaurant after his brother James, who owned and operated the Polish Town bar, died suddenly in January.

Mr. Loo said he discovered Birchwood was five weeks behind on payroll.

“I had to pay those guys,” he said. “A lot of things I can live with, like owing the state money. But I can’t owe people that have been working there for 30 years and not give them their paychecks.”

In addition to the money owed from Blue Agave, two liens totaling $13,659 were filed against Hy Ting and one for $14,149 was filed against Haiku, according to state records.

Mr. Loo said he had been in the process of paying for the taxes owed by Hy Ting and Haiku, and had a year to pay off the Blue Agave’s lien, but instead chose to use the money at Birchwood to “keep it afloat.”

When the deadline for Blue Agave’s payments came and went, the state stepped in.

Finding that tax agents had seized the restaurant and changed the locks was no surprise, Mr. Loo said.

“They change the locks and, when you give them the money, they give you the key,” he said.

He told the News-Review he would pay the state taxes in full to reopen the restaurant and was confident that, despite a “brutal” winter, the eatery would survive.

“I don’t want to see that place go,” he said. “It’s going to be open again … All three are still going to be there.”

A facility that plans to be taking the ‘sky’ out of ‘skydiving’ got an OK from the town’s zoning board of appeals last week, and will be moving forward with a proposed indoor sky diving facility — essentially a vertical wind tunnel — at the Enterprise Park at Calverton.

BARBARAELLEN KOCH PHOTO | Bridgehampton National Bank Mattituck branch manager Deborah Orlowski and her employees will be moving into the former SCNB building on the Main Road in Mattituck this summer after it is remodeled.

Call it the House that Orlowski Built.

After four years of growth at Bridgehampton National Bank’s shopping center branch in the Mattituck Plaza, the branch and its employees — including longtime Mattituck banker Debbie Orlowski — are moving across Main Road to the brick building recently vacated by Suffolk County National Bank.

“The exterior’s being worked on right now,” said Jim Manseau, who oversees all of the bank’s 26 branches from Montauk to Merrick. “The building was power-washed the other day. We’re going to seal and stripe the parking lot. And we’re doing some pretty decent renovations to the interior — new bathrooms, paint, rugs — an entire re-do.”

The company and landlord are just waiting on town building permits, he said. The plan is to open before the end of summer.

Mr. Manseau said the move was made possible because of how much the Mattituck branch has grown since hiring Ms. Orlowski from Capital One four years ago. She had worked for 38 years at North Fork Bank — back when it was called North Fork Bank and Trust Company and had just six branches — and Capital One before leaving in May 2010 for Bridgehampton.

“We’ve grown from $18 million to $55 million” since acquiring Ms. Orlowski, Mr. Manseau said.

Ms. Orlowski credits her success to the decades’ worth of relationships and trust she’s built with area clients.

“I started here May 3 of 2010 and it’s been wonderful,” she said. “I took a small branch that had been here for about 20 years and actually more than tripled the deposits. I’m kind of proud of that.”

Not much thought went into the decision to lease the building, Mr. Manseau said.

“We were contacted by someone after [Suffolk County National Bank] left and we said, ‘Absolutely,’<\!q>” he said. “We really believe in the Mattituck marketplace and that’s a great space, with plenty of parking and a drive-up window.”

The same staff customers have grown accustomed to in the plaza’s location, which has been in operation since 1992, will also make the move.

“The plan is, when the time comes, we’ll open Saturday in the shopping center and come Monday morning we’ll be open across the street,” Mr. Manseau said.

The 104-year-old Bridgehampton National Bank, which is based in Bridgehampton and just opened a Shelter Island branch last year, is getting ready to open a loan production storefront in Riverhead and is renovating its Southold and Sag Harbor stores, Mr. Manseau said.

The bank is also expanding its footprint to the west.

“We’re in Greenport, Shelter Island and Montauk, so you can’t go farther east,” he said. “But we want to continue to address our more mature marketplaces.”

Officials with Suffolk Bancorp, the parent company of SCNB, announced in November the branch would be closing by March, along with three other branches in Port Jefferson Station, Manorville and Montauk Harbor.

At the time, Suffolk Bancorp president and CEO Howard Bluver said the branches would close to make the bank more “efficient and nimble” and to protect the “best core deposit franchises.”

“Following these actions, we will continue to have the premier branch system in Suffolk County, consisting of 24 branches situated in key locations throughout the entire county,” Mr. Bluver said. He added that the locations were picked for closure following an analysis of the company’s branches by an outside consultant.

The Mattituck branch closed on Feb. 14 and the property, which had been owned by Suffolk Bancorp, was sold shortly thereafter, bank officials said this week.

Good news for Riverheaders looking for their coffee fix: the Starbucks on Route 58 is now open.

And next-door, a new structure is being built to house a Vitamin Shoppe, officials with the Saber plaza said.

The coffee shop held a soft opening Monday, and will host a grand opening celebration in four weeks, said supervisor Amanda Delong. The store, which is located in the shopping center just east of Riverhead Raceway that holds Christmas Tree Shops, Dick’s Sporting Goods and Aldi’s, includes a drive-through window and will be open from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. each day, she said.

That shopping center also includes a Dick’s Sporting GoodsFive BelowAldiChristmas Tree Shop, and a Buffalo Wild Wings. 

“We’re just trying to get the word out, but so far [business] has been good,” Ms. Delong said.

The building next door — which is still under construction — will be a Vitamin Shoppe that is expected to open near the end of June, a Saber employee said.
