      Sweet Basil in the Commack Corners shopping center is a fine pan Asian restaurant with an excellent - and well-priced - lunch menu. There's also Jackson's, which has a wide range of choices, including some imaginative salads. Nisen is good for sushi and the pizza at Emilio's is among the Island's best. If the wedding is on a weekend, I'd be sure to call ahead to make sure the place you choose is serving lunch. Saturday afternoons at some of these restaurants can be a bit tricky.

        Thanks for all of your suggestions. My friends will be impressed with my "local" knowledge.


      2. Emilio's Pizza/Italian Restaurant will have anything you want.
