Mirabelle Tavern in Stony Brook

Mirabelle Tavern in Stony Brook

We’ve had people whispering in our ear for a while to check out Mirabelle Tavern, a casual eatery inside of the Three Village Inn in picturesque Stony Brook. More relaxed in both atmosphere and menu items than its fancier sister, Mirabelle Restaurant, the TavernĀ  offers diners a chance to eat well-prepared French and American comfort food while feeling pampered in a casual setting.

Rumor Control: BLT Steak Coming To Manhasset?

Rumor Control: BLT Steak Coming To Manhasset?

We received an interesting email the other day here at East of NYC. The writer wanted more information on a rumor that he had heard that BLT Steak, one of many BLT restaurants throughout the country, was coming to our little island with a location in Manhasset.

Shopping can be hard; walking around the mall endlessly, looking for that perfect outfit or accessory for a night out on the town or for every day use. Saks Fifth Avenue, especially, is a mecca for high end couture. If you’re going to exert all of that energy shopping for their high-end wares, you’re going to need a worthy refueling station with top quality cuisine.

The Burger Spot in Garden City

The Burger Spot in Garden City

A new burger haven has popped up within the last year or so in Garden City and it’s called The Burger Spot. While shooting our “Burger” episode of Restaurant Hunter (on FiOS1 LI), we stopped by to sample the food and take as many pictures as we could.

Food News: Mitch & Toni’s American Bistro To Open in Albertson

Mitch SuDock was always lauded as the owner-chef of Bistro M in Glen Head; a little restaurant with a big following. It’s fitting that he’s launching a new restaurant in Albertson with his name in the title (We can’t leave out dining room manager Toni Contino as well). We hear that they’re shopping for chandeliers now, so the wait shouldn’t be too long.

We stopped by Grey Horse Tavern not so long ago to do a feature with FiOS1 Long Island and Restaurant Hunter on their brunch favorites as well as to see what makes this restaurant so unique. The now copper bar area actually played host to a live horse, drinking from the restaurant’s provisions. Things may have changed in the last 100 years or so at this continually operating tavern and restaurant, but this Bayport institution is still every bit as impressive and praiseworthy for its culinary goodness.

Four Food Studio opened up their doors around 2004-2005. When they arrived on the scene they practically kick-started a new way of dining on Long Island. We hadn’t seen anything like it before and now there may be a few restaurants that are trying to compete, but Four always comes out on top.

Toast & Co. in Huntington is one of the great restaurant / brunch places on Long Island. In the village of Huntington (north of Main Street), Toast & Co. is serving breakfast from 8am – 4pm every day. The decor is a a mix of americana of the past with a sampling of pop colors from the present. The green and orange adds a warm feeling throughout. We headed to Toast & Co. to take some pictures of the restaurant and the Stuffed French Toast. To view our gallery, continue on.

**Update: This location is closed**

Trattachino recently opened up in Wantagh in late January, and to our pleasant surprise was rocking the night away this past Saturday night. We happened to show up early and it was relatively empty during those first few minutes of dinner service. Leaving the restaurant was a different story; it was packed and everyone seemed to be having an excellent time with the wine and the food flowing. We sat down and immediately started ordering a bevy of items on this small plates / sharing New American menu. To view some of our guilty pleasures, keep on reading past the break.
