JTI’s American Kitchen and Bar at 91 Howells Road, Brightwaters will have its grand opening on Friday 7 July.

The name pays homage to the site’s previous owner, Jon Thomas Inne, dating back to 1925.

Owner Robert Trovato describes the restaurant as a “culinary adventure” crafted by his chef brother Nicholas and their close friend Jason Vilardi.

“We bring our passion and expertise together with the family to create a unique dining experience,” Trovato said.

Diners can look forward to a weekly changing menu featuring “re-invented” classic comfort foods, and a “curated” selection of wines, craft cocktails, small-batch spirits and local beers.

“Trust us, your taste buds will be in for a treat!” says Trovato, adding that he hopes the restaurant will host intimate dinners, special events and celebrations.

The menu tops off with tempting appetizers such as hand-rolled ricotta gnocchi, pork belly skewers and oysters on the half shell.

For entrees, diners can choose from more than a dozen burgers, steaks, chicken and fish dishes. These include the Black & Blue Dun-Rite Wagyu Burger, made with black Wagyu steak, blue cheese and onion rings.

A cry After participating in the trial operation, users are full of praise for the restaurant.

“The atmosphere is fun, with live music, and the food is delicious,” West Islip’s Denise R. says on Yelp. “The chef has outdone himself with this new menu.”
