Update: The current tenant of the Meetinghouse Creek Inn in Aquebogue will be operating the restaurant through Labor Day, 2015.

Mr. Galasso told the Riverhead Town Board last week that he is seeking to renovate the property and find a new tenant.
Mr. Drake said he’ll be running the restaurant in the meantime, until Tuesday, Sept. 8, 2015.
