Long Island Food News: Mitchell’s in Oceanside Set To Close On Sunday, July 12th

In somewhat-surprising news, Mitchell’s, one of Oceanside’s most notable diners, will be closing their doors to the public on Sunday, July 12, 2015. While we visited their diner multiple times over the years (some for Restaurant Hunter, on FiOS1 and then on our own with friends and family), we were always excited at finishing up dinner with one of their legendary ice cream treats.

Quick In and Out: Edison’s Ale House in Manhasset

Edison’s Ale House in Manhasset has us a bit confused. On the social media front, their website is just a holding page from GoDaddy and they’re not able to be found on any of the major social media outlets (we did find an Edison’s in NJ, though). Hit up their Yelp reviews and it’s a mixture of 1-star reviews and some that are overwhelmingly positive. We know that you can’t please everyone, but without the social initiative that it takes to keep bringing in new customers, can they continue on this way forever?

Quick In & Out: The Frisky Oyster in Greenport

Stopping by on a whim, in the dead of winter, to The Frisky Oyster in Greenport was as unexpected for us as it was for them. The beloved Greenport restaurant is a mainstay in the sleepy North Fork village and Owner / Chef Robby Beaver, at the helm since 2010, has been the most recent curator of this wonderful location.
