This is kind of an unusual request but I would like to find a restaurant to host a post "unveiling" at a Farmingdale cemetery. My dad was buried last year and this is the time we have the headstone set. He was almost 92 and a wonderful upbeat New Yorker. I may not have made the best judgment scheduling this family gathering for Sunday June 19th...Father's Day! but it seemed appropriate at the time. While this is a certainly a serious occasion, we are celebrating his life and he was always pivotal in getting family together. So it will have its upside. Someone suggested a japanese buffet called Minado in Carl Place on Glen Cove Road. It looks terrific as they can accommodate large group and we won't have to wait for endless service.
We are all traveling from far off, NYC, upstate and me in Massachusetts so getting back closer to LI bridges rather than stay out as far as Farmingdale is fine with us.
Open to opinions or suggestions.
