I've always wondered about the Long Island Restaurant/Bar on the Southwest corner of Atlantic Ave and Henry St. It's rarely open, and when it is, there is no one there. A friend who's been in the 'hood his whole life compared it more to a social club, where he'd never go.
There was an article in the times recently and it appears that it's a fully-functioning lunch spot.
Can a normal person walk in off the street and order? Is the food worth it? Anything else to know?
