About Mirabelle Restaurant:
For 25 years, Chef Guy Reuge and his wife Maria operated Mirabelle in St. James, considered by many discriminating gastronomes to be the very best Long Island has to offer. They now operate Mirabelle and Mirabelle Tavern at Three Village Inn. The all-new Mirabelle combines innovative French/American cuisine, superb presentation and world-class ambiance. The restaurant garnered a four-star rating from Peter Gianotti of Newsday and four-and-a-half stars from Long Island Pulse reviewer Richard Scholem, the former New York Times food critic. Gianotti commends, “The reborn Mirabelle, haute in cuisine and refined in style, improves on the original and in a handsome, serene setting.” Meanwhile Scholem declares, “There are many excellent restaurants on Long Island—none are better than Mirabelle.”
