Bar stools are shaped like giant lips at the new Kemistry (yep, that’s the way it’s spelled) Restaurant & Lounge in Mineola. Picture someone sitting on one and make of that image what you will.
The colorful modernistic-looking space offers live entertainment on weekends as well as televised sporting events.
Of more interest to me was its menu, big on sandwiches. At a rather uncomfortable booth, I tasted a very good burger whose topping would be any cardiologist’s nightmare: bacon, ham cheese, lettuce and a fried egg. In the same realm of wickedness was a Portuguese-style “Franceshina” sandwich (listed as an entree): white bread, sliced steak, bacon, sausage, ham, fried egg, mozzarella and a spicy tomato cream sauce. Quite a kick, if not in the realm of the supernal “Franceshina” you’ll read about in Thursday’s “Cheap Eats” column.
Kemistry Restaurant & Lounge is at 68-70 Old Country Rd., Mineola, 516-280-9820.
