This past Sunday, I ate out at a local restaurant. The lunch was first-rate, the service was excellent and the atmosphere conducive to pleasant dining. As always, the owner was there to see that things ran smoothly. Only one thing was missing - a full house.

I am talking about Shish-Ka-Bob, an institution in this town for 21 years - a place known for its good food, fair prices and great take-out. It would be a shame if the unfortunate circumstances that received such a public airing kept our local residents away - not just from this landmark, but from Ayhan's other two unique contributions to Port Washington: Fish Ka-Bob and the Mediterranean Marketplace.

Whatever caused patrons to become ill last week - negligence on the part of one employee who did not follow proper sanitary procedures or contaminated food (unknowingly) purchased from the outside - could happen at any of Manhattan's finest restaurants.

One thing I know for sure - that this industrious, hard-working proprietor will devote the same energies to tackling the problem and maintaining the highest health standards for all his establishments as he has demonstrated in his business and culinary endeavors.

I hope that the community gives him the chance that he deserves.
