Decades ago, when continental- and French-themed restaurants defined haute Long Island, Villa Pierre was a Glen Cove landmark. Former owner Joseph Saccone is bringing the establishment's cuisine back at a fundraiser for the Cerebral Palsy Association of Nassau County.
The Harbor Club in Huntington is the site of "A Night of Villa Pierre" on June 29, an invitation-only dinner the proceeds of which will go to the endowment at the association. Saccone is expected to prepare some Villa Pierre favorites, from cannelloni to chicken meuniere, salad with pear to chocolate cake. The guests: regulars from Villa Pierre.
