That's exactly the scenario taking place at Cafe Europa which is under new ownership and will be celebrating a grand re-opening early next week, as Patch has reported.
And that gets us thinking about what and where West Islip residents go when they're in the mood for a good meal or a certain food.
Our new open blog, Tastes of West Islip, hopes to be a place where you can share your local dining experiences with the people who will appreciate them best, the locals in the community who find their own homecomings in these dishes. Here you can upload a photo of that great meal in town. Here you can tell us what you liked best.
And sharing is easy.
Or, from the homepage, follow these steps:
Sign in to your Patch. (Click “Join” if you don’t have an account yet.)
Click the "Blogs" tab, near the top of the homepage and then locate the Tastes of West Islip blog in the left-hand column. Click on it.
Click in the box that says, “Write a new post” and then click on “Article” at the top.
Give your post a headline, enter the body of the story and upload your photos.
Click “Post now.”
So share with us is you'll be trying the new Cafe Europa next week or if there's a favorite haunt you always depend on for a great meal.
