Our family went to a very unusual restaurant this weekend for brunch.
A visit to the 56th Fighter Group will transport you back to an era of Big Band music and World War II. This charming 1917 French Style Allied Headquarters Farmhouse sits on the site where the P47 fighter aircraft was built during WWII. The rustic timbered ceilings and cozy dining rooms boast seven fireplaces and a romantic view of the runway of Republic Airport in the heart of Long Island. You can enjoy an extensive collection of aviation and WWII memorabilia as you dine in the museum-type atmosphere.
The whole time I was there I thought about Sarge Charlie. I know he's a Vietnam Vet but I'm sure he'd be interested in this place so I took plenty of pictures for him to enjoy. Here they are in a slideshow:
Sarge I hope you enjoy the slideshow.
The 56th Fighter Group is located in East Farmingdale, Long Island, New York, at Republic Airport.
