Mother Kelly’s, a Cedarhurst presence for more than 30 years, has closed and the building has been sold. But another branch with the same name is still up and running in a Syosset office building.

Lisa Lanese, who owns the restaurant with her brothers Mark and Glenn Gobetz and their mother, Dorothy Gobetz, said the Syosset menu, while shorter than the Cedarhurst original, features many of the same items and offers both counter and table service as well as wine and beer.

On the menu: creamed spinach pizza ($3 slice; $22 pie), a hot/cold salad ($9.95 small; $14.95 large), spaghetti and meatballs ($7.95 small; $9.95 large), chicken Parmigiana ($15.95) and grilled eggplant over spaghetti squash ($13.95)

Mother Kelly’s is at 575 Underhill Blvd., Suite #160, Syosset, 516-802-0333,
