The Plate: An Italian-American Restaurant and Bar, which replaced Medley’s less than a year ago on Main Street in Islip, has closed.

The Italian restaurant, which opened in May 2016, shut its doors last week, blaming a “poor economy” as the reason for the closure.

The Plate served a mix of family-style Italian and American dishes, such as chicken or veal marsala, a variety of Parmigianas and lobster ravioli. Dining options were available at the bar and tableside.

Expected in its place is a new sports bar, but no opening date has been set.
