Prohibition Kitchen, whose owners in February promised “illegally good food” for the area, just opened earlier this month in Port Jefferson.

It’s created an instant buzz.

“It has a unique vibe that people seem to be very excited about,” admitted owner Lisa Harris, who also co-owns the village’s donut shop, East Main & Main.

In February, the Port Jeff resident and industry veteran told us she knew she wanted to bring something fun and different to the area.

“I have owned restaurants and cafes for over 20 years,” she said. “I want people to enjoy tasting different things.”

Among the immediate hits, she says, has been the “You’re A Dirty Mother Clucker” sandwich, which is Southern fried chicken served on a donut with light gravy.

“We sold a ton of the Dirty Mother Cluckers,” said Harris. “People are loving it.”


Prohibition Kitchen is located in the former Kimi Japenese Restaurant on Main Street. The restaurant officially opened on Friday, April 5.
