Once we had decided to attend a performance at the Smithtown Performing Arts Center we needed a place to eat. Smithtown has a variety of restaurants to choose from. Our friends suggested Butera’s, on Main Street and close to the theater. Parking can be found on the street, or in a nearby lot.
Four steps up and then a “mini” step got us to the single door entrance, then another door to reach the bar area and hostess desk. A ramp entry is located on the right side of the building. This door leads directly into one of the dining rooms.
The restaurant has a wam feeling, with lots of wood, sconces and wrought iron decor. The dining rooms have hardwood floors, tables and chairs, with ample space between them. The bar area has smooth fieldstone flooring.
Restrooms are mullti-stall, but not handicapped-accessible (no bars).
The menu is described as “New Italian cuisine with northern and southern influences.” (website) Although we were there early on a Saturday evening, we liked the idea that one can make a reservation for any number of people. We enjoyed a delicious, unrushed dinner with very pleasant and attentive service before heading down the street to the theater.
As always, we at Destination Accessible advise you to check a venue’s website, www.buteras.com, when planning a visit, to “know before you go.”
