Bruno's Village Restaurant on Hawkins Avenue in Lake Ronkonkoma has been sold and turned over its bar stools for the final night on Sunday, according to Frank Giordano, the restaurant's general manager.
According to Giordano and other employees the bar and grill has sold to the owners of Lily Flanagan's Pub in Babylon Village, and the owners will be conducting renovations to the building once it clears out on Sunday.
Giordano did not know how much the restaurant sold for. The sale was negotiated between the owner, Herb Bruno, and a principal owner at Lily Flanagan's Pub.
Giordano said that Bruno is currently living in Florida and was seeking to get out of the restaurant business. He could not confirm the status of the employees at Bruno's and whether or not they would continue on as Lily Flanagan employees.
Calls to the Babylon Village location were not immediately returned. The Lily Flanagan's pub/restaurant in Islip told Patch they are not affiliated with the sale or the Babylon brand.
