Norman Rockwell Restaurants The Norman Rockwell Restaurants are coming. In fact, almost here. The first is due to open in Stony Brook, Long Island in January. Restaurateur Bill Sukow plans to open eight to ten Rockwell-themed restaurants in the next five years, with at least four of them located on Long Island. Sukow, who feels people "are yearning for Americana," got the idea after visiting the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge, Massachusetts. The menu will feature such items as apple pie and Southern fried chicken. And maybe even Orange Crush.
