Nassau County Legislature Minority Leader Kevan Abrahams (D – Freeport) led the legislature in honoring Lillian and Leisa Dent, proprietors of soul food destination LL Dent Restaurant, during a Black History Month observance at the Nassau County Legislature on Monday, Feb. 25.

LL Dent was the outgrowth of blending mother Lillian’s Georgia roots with Leisa’s training at the Culinary Institute of America and experience working as a Marriott corporate chef and Eddie Murphy’s personal chef. The mother-daughter team from Roosevelt will close their popular Carle Place restaurant after 13 years in business on Feb. 28.

“While I speak for many in sharing my sadness that Lillian and Leisa Dent have decided to step aside from the restaurant business, I thank them for 13 years of amazing food, friendship and memories that came alive within the walls of LL Dent,” Minority Leader Abrahams said. “It is my pleasure to recognize them before the Nassau County Legislature during Black History Month and wish them great success and many blessings in their future endeavors.”
