Sweet Mama's Restaurant, Northport, Long Island, NY
And without a problem or extra charge.
According to Laura, one of the regular managers, Sweet Mama's began as a chicken farm, somewhere in the late 1800's. It was originally owned by the Smith family, a very prominent name on Long Island (see my blog on the Smithtown Bull).
The chicken farm was converted to an Italian restaurant, Salvatore's. It was in business for 50 years until Smitty's took over, which ran for 8 years. The house closed down for two years and didn't reopen its doors until 2006 when Sweet Mama's took over.
Sweet Mama's three spacious rooms are decorated in 1950's style. Posters, pictures, knick knacks and period music bring you back to a simpler time in America's history. The counter is spacious and, if you get a special corner, you will feel as though you are being catered to. There are hooks below to accommodate a jacket or anything else you wish to hang there.
As usual, here are some links
