It took almost two years, but J&C 68 Restaurant in Farmingville has finally reopened after a fire caused by superstorm Sandy. Renovations as well as legal issues made for a long road back, according to owner Nancy Fu.
Fu added that the restaurant retains its original chef, known only as Ho, as well as mostly the same repertoire of Chinese, Japanese and Thai specialties, along with sushi. The menu has been updated, however, with such authentic Chinese options as stewed chicken with three-cup sauce ($14.95) and crispy rice with chicken ($18.95), as well as dishes such as Malaysian fried rice ($11.95) and mango and pineapple chicken ($14.95).
J&C 68 made its original debut back in 2010 and, in a review dated Aug. 12 of that year, received a two-star rating. It's located at 654 Horseblock Rd., Farmingville, 631-736-6677.
