Back in 1972, restaurateur Ronnie Dragoon launched the first Ben’s Kosher Delicatessen Restaurant in Baldwin. Although that particular venue has since closed, there are three Long Island branches of Ben’s — in Woodbury, Carle Place and Greenvale.

Now, Dragoon is marking Ben's 40th anniversary with a reunion geared to those who worked and ate at the original spot. But anyone can come. 

The nostalgia-themed event will be held at the Greenvale location on Tuesday, Feb. 28, from 6 to 8 p.m., when Dragoon and his wife, Cindy, will share reminiscences with the crowd. A prix-fixe meal, at  $19.72 a person, includes a choice of a hot corned beef, hot pastrami, roasted turkey, roast beef or beef tongue sandwich, served with a variety of sides, among them knishes, franks in jackets and coleslaw. For dessert, there’s house-baked rugelach and coffee or tea.

Also on the agenda: prize giveaways plus a Ben’s trivia contest.

To reserve, call 516-621-3340 or visit the Ben's Facebook page.

Ben's Delicatessen Restaurant & Caterers is at 59 Old Country Rd., Carle Place, 516-742-3354 and 140 Wheatley Plaza, Greenvale, 516-621-3340 and 7971 Jericho Tpke., Woodbury, 516-496-4236.
