Port Jefferson Station may not have the waterfront dining options that Port Jefferson has, but that doesn’t mean that we should leave them out in the cold and not visit. We’ve scoured the area and came up with a few great dining options for our readers to visit and experience for a wonderful dining day in Suffolk County.
When we used to live in the city back in the late 90′s and early 2000′s, we lived a block away from Grace’s Marketplace on 71st and 3rd on the Upper East Side. A few years after we made our way back to Long Island we noticed that a new marketplace was being built in Greenvale. When we saw the Grace’s signs go up, we knew that Long Island was in for a wonderful treat.
We first learned about Ms. Michelle’s Urban Gourmet while at Grey Horse Tavern in Bayport. The bakery was supplying the Tavern with one of their best desserts. Located a two-minute drive away from that spot, we decided it would be a good idea to stop in and take a quick tour.
Being a great seafood restaurant would be enough for most establishments, but being one of the largest seafood markets in the area as well is taking Southside Fish and Clam to another level. The abundance of seafood pouring through these doors daily is helping to keep prices low and quality way up.
Real Jewish delis are hard to come by these days. As Wally Goetz, the owner of Lido Kosher Deli will tell you, it’s a dying breed. Lido Kosher Deli is a hub of activity on the south shore. During our lunchtime visit there were streams of people coming in to take out and sit down at one of the best on the island.
On this week’s Restaurant Hunter on FiOS1 Long Island, host Rob Petrone and East of NYC’s Publisher, Mark Levine took you on a tour of some of the best Southern Eats across the island. We’ve compiled Mark’s talking points along with supporting pictures of some great BBQ spots that you should definitely visit.
Riverbay, a long-time mainstay and fixture on Willis Avenue in Williston Park has served its last dish. Closing to make way for a new bank location, this Poll family owned restaurant and building will not be pleasing diners any longer.
When Sacramone’s originally opened in 1989 at their Queens location, they probably never could have imagined that almost 25 years later they’d still be going strong and opening up another location on Long Island.
Almost a week never goes by when we’re not stopping by our favorite hometown deli. Smith Street Deli is the neighborhood go-to spot for all phases of the day; they’ve got breakfast, lunch and dinner covered. So, if you’re ever in the Merrick area, this is one casual spot that you can’t afford to miss.
Little Sweet Jamaica is a diamond in the rough. Owned by sisters who started in Jamaica working in restaurants and eventually made their way out to New York, this is a local spot that is cheap on price and extravagant on flavor.
