Mineola’s newest restaurant, the , held it’s grand opening and ribbon cutting earlier this month.
Mineola along with village trustee George Durham, village justice Hon. Robert Rosenthal and chamber member Roseanne Peritore cut the ribbon alongside owners Israel Aguilar and Maryellen Villata on December 7 before heading inside for a small taste of the fare offered at the establishment on the small access road leading to Station Plaza.
The space was previously occupied by Mo’ Joe coffee house and offers food and a menu similar to Sarabeth’s Bakery in Manhattan – where Villalta and her business partner worked – and include sandwiches and brunch on weekends. All food would be homemade on the premises.
”They have great food, we stopped by and helped make them successful and I wish them great success here in Mineola,” Mayor Strauss said during the village board meeting later that night.
“I can recommend the Chef’s burger,” Trustee Durham said. “They gave us a couple samples and I can tell you it was a quality burger.”
