The Shalimar Diner, a Rego Park institution that has been in business for 45 years, is closing Sunday.

The owners of the 63-68 Austin St. diner posted a sign on their door stating that they will be closing on Nov. 25.

Demi Karayiannis, who has owned the diner with her husband since it opened in 1974, said that their lease is coming to an end and they were unable to afford the proposed rent.
