Ask Jody: Small Long Island Restaurant for Rehearsal

Jump to Comments

Tom, Lindenhurst

Q: I was told to send you a email and see if you have any helpful suggestions.  I’m looking to throw my rehearsal dinner for my wedding.   We want to keep it on Long Island  we live in Lindenhurst so somewhere not to far off.  All out guests will be staying at the Fox Hollow.  We would love an Italian place that won’t break the bank.  It will be in the month of November and be about 30-40 people.  Any suggestions?   Much appreciated.

A:  Hi Tom.  There are some great restaurants on the south shore of Long Island that can accommodate a rehearsal dinner for 30-40 guests. I would definitely consider a “buffet” style meal if you are on a budget.  The Irish Coffee Pub in East Islip is a unique restaurant that has an appetizing buffet menu. There is also the Carriage House & Gemelli’s in Babylon that caters to special events, as well as the Nutty Irishman in Bayshore if you are looking for a more casual atmosphere.
