MICA is thrilled to see redevelopment/reuse of three key spots at the heart of our community! In June, we welcomed Akis Periculous to our civic meeting. He provided great samples of his Athens Greek restaurant cuisine. Akis and his family are pictured directly above. The Athens Diner is on the north side of Rt 25, where the Country Diner once operated. Reviews have been great! On Jully 22, we joined Councilman Mike Loguercio at the ribbon cutting for the new MELTology restaurant, located at the former Friendly’s. Owner Kevin Muller and staff are serving great sandwiches, salads, crepes and more. Kevin is a Longwood grad who once managed that site when it was Friendly’s. Welcome home, Kevin! And on July 25, we joined Brookhaven Town officials, 7Eleven corporate folk, and Michael Nelin for the official groundbreaking for the new 7Eleven/Fuel Station on the northeast corner of Rts21 and 25. The “No Gas” gas station should have gas and coffee for sale before Christmas. Can’t wait to trade our hard hats and golden shovels for that red ribbon and big pair of scissors!
