Where do you go when you want to sit down with a bunch of friends, order a slew of appetizers and drinks, zone out and watch the game? There might be a lot of restaurants and bars that could fit this description, but what if you wanted to watch almost every game that was on tv? To seek your answer, we headed to Kodiak’s Restaurant and Bar in Farmingdale to not only check out their new digs, but to find out if all of your needs could be met.
*Update: Red Robin is open as of May 9th.
Construction has been under way for quite some time at the Country Glen Center (next to Chipotle and Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza) and it’s only now that we have an idea of what is coming to this ever-increasing gastronomic hotspot.
Some things are too good to last forever, and now the same can be said about Honu Kitchen & Cocktails in Huntington Village. The restaurant has transformed within the past few years from Blue Honu, the small plates focused New American eatery to its current form, Honu Kitchen & Cocktails, offering up larger entrees in an elegant setting.
Located in Water Mill, Muse Restaurant & Aquatic Lounge is a great dining establishment. We’re lucky to have Chef Matthew Guiffrida show us a perfect fall/winter offering, with his Butternut Experience.
Inventive New American Cuisine is not something that we’re seeing a lot of these days on Long Island. To sit down to a meal and be so content by what you’ve just eaten is almost falling off the map. That’s why when we were done with our meal at 388 New American Cuisine for a recent television shoot we were not only stuffed, but entranced by this new spot’s take on classic dishes.

Sometimes all you’re looking for in this crazy world is a little simplicity and a taste of home-style cooking. Apartment 138 on Smith Street achieves this and more!
Opened a few years ago in what was formerly an apartment at 138 Smith Street, the owners created a place where you could get a tasty, hot meal coupled with a potent cocktail (or coffee or beer, if you prefer) well into the wee hours of the night. There are daily specials and weekend brunch that includes orange infused French toast and banana pancakes. Their regular dinner menu includes simple pressed sandwiches, a skirt steak salad over mixed greens topped with creamy crumbled bleu cheese, burgers, pastas, sliders, and my personal favorite baby back ribs topped with a sweet and tangy barbecue sauce, served with sides of spicy bakes apples and crispy mac & cheese.
Last night I indulged in those ribs along with one of the best appetizers I think I’ve ever tasted – dates stuffed with garlic and wrapped in bacon. I described the flavor to my dinner companion as dirty porn sex – you know you shouldn’t be watching (eating), but you just can’t stop. We each had a specialty cocktail – mine being a concoction that was the perfect balance of gin, club soda, lemon, and other flavors.
The waitresses aren’t bad looking either.
