The dish on Long Island's restaurant and food scene.
On Aug. 18 and 19, brothers and co-owners Louis and Rino Di Maria will mark their two-year anniversary at Willy Parkers American Bar & Grill in Williston Park. They also expect to celebrate an unusual distinction: being the first at that address in a series of about seven restaurants to make it to the two-year mark.
Both nights, the regular menu will be offered. On Aug. 18, there will be a magician in the dining room and a psychic at the bar. The next night, chef Eric Engvaldson — who previously cooked at Jean-Georges and Bouley in Manhattan — will add the option of a celebratory four-course prix-fixe meal at $39.95 a person.
Willy Parkers American Bar & Grill is at 71 Hillside Ave., Williston Park, 516-750-8125.
