Party like it’s 1993… Piccola Bussola Ristorante (970 West Jericho Tpk., Huntington Station) is celebrating 25 years in business this month. The restaurant is offering rollback menu prices every Tuesday in November to celebrate the occasion, which means there are still three more opportunities to take advantage of the ’90s prices. The restaurant’s menu will feature family style plates at rollback prices. The family style dishes are portioned so two people can share the meal. Thriving for a quarter century in the restaurant business is never easy, especially in a competitive market like Huntington. Celebrate the success of a local restaurant with some great deals.
