Food News: Nicholas James Bistro in Merrick Closed

Sad Food News coming out of Merrick today. Kevin Liebov, the owner/chef of Nicholas James Bistro in Merrick has announced that they have shuttered their doors, after 19 years in service, mostly due to economic reasons and the increasing rents that are turning up on Merrick Road.

Today marks St. Patrick’s Day and what better way to ring that in than to focus on one of the island’s best watering holes that also serves great food; Corry’s Ale House, located in Wantagh.

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.

Inside and Out: Mim’s in Syosset

Mim’s in Syosset has been somewhat of an institution for the local area on Berry Hill Road. Although some of the restaurants that are located within earshot of Mim’s have turned over at least 5-6 times in almost as many years, Mim’s has proven to be a local favorite that is still catering to the same clientele that it did when it opened many years ago.

The Oar Seafood Grille in Patchogue

The Oar Seafood Grille has been a Patchogue favorite for (almost) the last 30 years. Waterfront on the Patchogue River and with outdoor dining, all one has to do is enter the restaurant and look up at the ceiling to know that they are about to encounter some wonderful seafood. Oars and paddles line the restaurant and make you just want to jump into a boat and start paddling.

The Riverhead Project in Riverhead is unique for the area. At the entry point to the north fork, it’s proving to be not only one of the most popular spots, but it is also one of the most revered for its unique space, excellent cuisine and busy lounge area.

REVEL in Garden City may be one of Long Island’s newest additions, but even though it is just getting its feet wet in this North Shore community doesn’t mean that it lacks a serious culinary punch.

Lucharitos in Greenport

Off-season it may be tough to find a great drink spot that also serves up great food as well as a great atmosphere. In Greenport, near the end of the North Fork, it can get a bit quiet off-season, but that’s ok. When quiet isn’t what you’re looking for, Lucharitos will (usually) fulfill your need.

PLANCHA Tapas and Wine Bar in Garden City

When we saw that PLANCHA, a new Tapas and Wine Bar was opening up in Garden City, our intuition told us that Josh, Jonathan and Lily, the trio behind one of our favorite spots on the South Shore, Salumi, in Massapequa, were behind this new spot. Our suspicions were confirmed and with that knowledge in our hands, we knew that diners were in for something special on the North Shore.

For our last regular segment on the wildly popular Restaurant Hunter on FiOS1 Long Island it was fitting that we sat down at Big Daddy’s in Massapequa Park for our proper send-off. With a New Orleans festive atmosphere we were able to enjoy the cuisine for this going away party.
