Avocados Kitchen in N. Babylon hosts grand opening with proceeds to benefit local family


This one is about so much more than a symbolic ribbon cutting.

As part of its grand opening event on Monday, June 24, the new Avocado’s Kitchen at 1143 Deer Park Ave. in North Babylon (formerly home to Denny’s) will donate 30 percent of all proceeds that day to the family of graduating North Babylon High School senior David Reisinger, whose mother died during the COVID-19 pandemic and whose father is terminally ill with cancer.

“David and his 3 brothers are hoping to stay in the family home and support each other through these trying times,” Avocados Kitchen owner Paul Felleti said in a Facebook post about the event. “The funds raised from the grand opening celebration and the ‘GO FUND ME’ fundraiser will be a great help to David starting the next phase of his life.”

Reisinger, 18, graduates from high school this week, having earned his diploma, as well as finishing certificate training with BOCES as a welder. The plan is for Reisinger to work as a welder and help his family — he has three brothers — remain in their family home.

The Avocados Kitchen fundraising event, together with the online fundraiser established at, will supplement Reisinger’s efforts.

The grand opening event begins at 1 p.m. and will last until closing time at 9 p.m. The restaurant is open from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Sunday, 8 a.m.-10 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and 8 a.m.-11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. Avocados Kitchen opened this spring.
