We had dinner tonight at Perabel in Riverhead. The hostesses had the same degree of warmth as I experienced in my last tourist visit to Russia. They exaggerated the wait time, in spite of the fact that there was almost a half dozen empty tables. The menu was like a rat maze that always seems to lead me to order a hamburger, since the few meal type items are more than a restaurant with the ambiance of a long subway tunnel with loud music should be charging. The hamburger had that funky taste of meat that has been sitting around too long at room temperature, slightly rotting in aroma. The fries were over-crisp shoestrings that when you tried to pick up with a fork broke in half. The hamburger was nice size, but really did not taste very good. They seemed to have an extensive menu of pizza and appetizers and maybe that is what this restaurant is good for.
