The owner of a popular Soundview restaurant has died from the coronavirus.

For more than 20 years, Joe Torres was known for his food at Joe's Place.

Torres lost his battle with COVID-19 Sunday.

A bouquet was left on the gate outside of Joe's Place Monday with a note from a friend saying, "Thanks for the memories."

His longtime friends say they hope a street could be renamed after Torres one day, and that his summer festivals in front of the restaurant will still take place.
