You Can’t Miss Sayville’s Main Street Diner – The Sign Won’t Let You

September 5, 2020

It's been so tough for many dining establishments during COVID-19, mostly relying on outdoor dining in many places and so many closing during a lockdown, unable to sustain constant losses.

But The Main Street Diner in Sayville, New York on Long Island reopened in July after remodeling and the reviews online have been laudatory of the work commissioned by new owners Marino Francomihalos and Billy Masalis, who reopened the restaurant on July 20. It is, according to Francomihalos, his first time, taking a risk.

“People are very supportive,” he told LongIsland.com and besides the food, a magnet is almost certainly going to be the big mural sign that's got townspeople agog.

Francomihalos said it's the work of renowned New York graffiti artist, Sandra “Lady Pink” Smith, and you can't miss it.

Francomihalos said that the choice of the artwork theme was obvious. “This is Sayville. We wanted to do something for the town,” he said. “Everybody likes it.”

Shannon H on Yelp wrote: “Outside, the lighting, new sign, freshly paved large parking lot, and GORGEOUS Sayville painting welcome you in. Inside, it gets even better.”
