  • Three Village Inn

    Mirabelle at Three Village Inn – Stony Brook

    Known as the Old Homestead, the original structure of Mirabelle at Three Village Inn was built in 1751 by Richard Hallock. In 1835, Jonas Smith, one of the country’s most prominent ship owners, purchased Hallock Homestead for use as a summer house. After his death in 1867, the house had a series of owners until 1929 when Mrs. Frank Melville purchased and renovated it for use as a Women’s Exchange. As people visited the area, she started serving tea, sandwiches, and refreshments. What began as a simple tea room in the 1930s became a large restaurant with rooms to accommodate overnight guests in 1939. A fine country inn was born, the Three Village Inn.

    In addition to their full-scale wedding events, Three Village Inn, and their accompanying restaurant Mirabelle, can host small elopements, micro-weddings, and minimonys for groups of 5 to 50 people.

  • Post Office Café – Babylon

    Want to go with something super-casual? Lessing’s Hospitality Group opened the Post Office Café on Main Street in Babylon in 1978. It is rare for any restaurant to celebrate over 40 years in business, but the Post Office Café is still going strong. Jack Lessing bought the old Post Office, built in the 1930s, from a friend who was running a bartending school in the building and converted it into a family pub that entertains many of the original customers to this day.

    “For over 40 years Babylonians have been gathering daily at the Post Office Cafe. As we always say at the PO, people don’t come to us because they’re hungry. They come for company and companionship. They tell us they feel like they belong here, and that’s the greatest compliment we could ever be paid. They are part of the PO family.”

    Known for our juicy burgers, signature cocktails and welcoming staff, the Post Office is sure to deliver every time. This old-school Lessing’s-run venue has a private area that can host a small group of up to 20 people.
