MP Taverna in Roslyn is a rarity on Long Island. It’s helmed by owner/chef Michael Psilakis, a heavyweight in the international scene. He’s amassed a Michelin star, a James Beard Award nomination and he can be seen on various television series regularly airing (including Iron Chef). It’s a wonderful thing that he has planted MP Taverna, his take on a modern Greek bistro, right here in our own backyard.
While we didn’t see any food during our visit to Ruvo in Port Jefferson, we still wanted to take our readers on an exterior and interior tour of this revered italian eatery on the north shore. Located almost waterfront, Ruvo is an italian eatery curated by the same ownership as their other location in Greenlawn, La Tavola in Sayville and Del Fuego in St. James. The open atrium, bright colors and bar area certainly holds the key to any type of dining experience.
St. James is our favorite dining destination on the island for one reason; it’s a small hamlet located in the Town of Smithtown, but in its tiny footprint lays a veritable treasure trove of amazing restaurants in every price range. This is worth a day trip to experience the variety of cuisines as well as the talented chefs that are carving their way through Suffolk. We’ve hit up a few of our favorites to show our readers what lies in waiting for you once you make the trip out.
For those of us who have been patiently waiting for the new Buffalo Wild Wings in Westbury to open, our wait is coming to a close. Occupying the space that previously held Mirage Nightclub and then most recently GLO, this new Buffalo Wild Wings is going to be massive and probably won’t disappoint, when they open on March 16th.
Stopping into The Bulldog Grille in Amityville not too long ago we were surprised that they were no longer a part of the Lessing’s family of restaurants (they had just been sold), but that didn’t deter us from hopping up to the bar, taking in some football, beer, wings and sliders.
Melville was the focus of this week’s Restaurant Hunter on FiOS1 Long Island. Host Rob Petrone along with East of NYC’s very own Mark Levine took to the streets to bring you along to some hotspots in the area. Click on through to learn about some hot spots as well as an East of NYC bonus that wasn’t on-air.
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.
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.
Refined, tasteful, contemporary. These are words that may be used to describe a vineyard or a winery tasting room. But a beer tasting room? Not so much. That all changed last Friday when Hoptron Brewtique threw open its doors on West Main Street in Patchogue. Beer lovers of Long Island – you’ve just been served.
Among the many restaurants that are in Rockville Centre sits its newest shining star, Kashi Japanese. A sister-restaurant to their other busy location on the north shore’s equivalent to Rockville Centre, Huntington Village (both with busy village atmospheres), Kashi will make you feel blue, but not in the way that you might be thinking.
