Bryant and Cooper Hosts Seniors
Fifty senior citizens, who might
otherwise not have had a Thanks-
giving dinner, will enjoy one -
without any charge - at one of
Roslyn's finest restaurants.
The owners of the Bryant and
Cooper Steakhouse on Middle
Neck Road extended the invita-
tion through the Nassau County
Department of Senior Citizen
"Not everyone is so fortunate to
have family and friends with
whom they share holidays, " said
Dean Poll, who with his brothers,
Gillis and George, owns and operates Bryant and Cooper. The Polls said that in Nassau County, of the 1.2
million population, more than 260,000 people are 60 or older.
"Isolation can cause nutritional deficiencies and an increased risk of heart attack and cancer," said Michelle
Sheldone, a spokesperson for the restaurant, in explaining why the Polls made the offer.
The Poll brothers decided to work through the county office after learning of its programs which improve the
quality of life for seniors, and advocates on their behalf.
It's the fifth year for the program, which this year will involved 800 senior citizens and 21 restaurants in
Nassau. The meal will be served at 1 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 24.
Bryant and Cooper also this week announced that their "famous homemade sauce," enjoyed by customers as
a topping for sliced beafsteak tomatoes and onions, is not being bottled and sold at retail.
"The sauce is also enjoyed as the ultimate flavor enhancer and marinade for meats, vegetables, fish and
poultry," Sheldone said, adding that it contained zero fat and zero cholesterol.
The sauce is available at a suggested retail price of $3.99 at the retail market adjoining the restaurant, and
will soon be sold nationwide through a mail-order Bryant and Cooper catalogue.
