The dish on Long Island's restaurant and food scene.
Its game time at Game Master Grill, a Mineola restaurant where patrons can play board games while eating hamburgers and ribs.
Owners and brothers Duane and Dave VanderWerf have a board game store in Hicksville, which has a limited menu. The new Mineola store/restaurant expands on that with offerings like quesadillas for $6.95, salads, and sandwiches (Granny Smith apples thinly sliced with turkey, alfalfa sprouts, Dijon mayo and Swiss cheese on a roll, $6.95). Also being served: burgers, a cheesy mac-n-cheese with lobster for $10.95 and half-slab and full-slab ribs ($9.95 or $12.95). No liquor license yet, but the owners have applied for one.
The VanderWerfs are also getting their catering business off the ground: They will bring both the food and board game to your house for a party or family night. You have to buy the game, of course.
Game Master Grill, 78 Roslyn Rd., Mineola, 516-506-7446.
